From Cars (the movie) to Self-Driving: Pixar veterans join Aurora to advance simulation efforts
October 28, 2021 | 1 min. read
Aurora’s Virtual Testing Suite has been an important part of our company and today we’re accelerating our simulation efforts by welcoming the team from Colrspace – creative technology start-up made up of Pixar veterans behind the computer-generated imagery (CGI) magic of iconic movie series like “Toy Story” and “Cars.”
Colrspace’s team bridges state-of-the-art computer graphics and machine learning with a data-driven approach to reconstructing 3D objects and materials, deployable in real-world environments. As we continue to leverage and expand our Virtual Testing Suite, Colrspace's technology will bring scalability and increased accuracy to the high-fidelity virtual worlds that underpin our unique sensor simulation capabilities. Ultimately, Colrspace's team and technology will enable us to move even faster in developing simulation and machine learning tools, accelerating our progress toward delivering the Aurora Driver.
Delivering the benefits of self-driving technology safely, quickly, and broadly.
