TOMSK, Mar 12 – RIA Tomsk. The Swiss company Daedalean started
developing of universal software for flying unmanned vehicles, virtual training
grounds will be created using the Tomsk 3D platform UNIGINE, the director of
the Unigine Corp Denis Shergin told RIA Tomsk.
Earlier it was reported that the
UNIGINE 2 Sim platform is designed for interactive 3D-visualization, that is,
to create a virtual reality. The Tomsk solution is used by more than 200
companies around the world in professional training systems (sea, land, air,
space, computer vision).
"The Swiss company Daedalean
began to develop control algorithms for unmanned aerial vehicles, they will be
trained in virtual grounds created on our platform UNIGINE 2 Sim. In
particular, using the platform, our partners are developing a software solution
for computer vision training", – Shergin told.
According to him, in 2018, a Swiss
startup team made several notable technical advances: introduced high-precision
navigation based on computer vision in situations when GPS does not work, and
developed a solution which allows an unmanned aerial vehicle to choose a safe
place to land and detect obstacles in real time.

The best decision
On the website of the Unigine Corp
company it is specified that now both the large global companies and startups
are involved in the race to develop the best solutions of the flying car:
"The main problem of all
developers – is how to make autonomous vehicles safe. Using a virtual
environment to train drone aircraft before releasing them on real roads allows
to create various emergency scenarios without risk and high costs, and also to
train computer vision components at an early stage of development, without
ready-made prototype of the aircraft".
"We started working on our
product with another popular 3D engine, but it did not support double
coordinate accuracy (64-bit). For us, this characteristic is very important
because we need to simulate long-haul flights. Therefore, we chose UNIGINE 2
Sim for our development", – the head of the training direction in
Daedalean Grigory Yakushev is quoted.
