Metamoto, Inc., a Silicon Valley startup offering scalable simulation solutions for autonomous vehicles, has enlisted an assembly of leading automotive players in its early engagement program. The announcement coincides with the start of Metamoto’s Series A fundraising on the heels of a successful $2-million seed round fundraise, led by investor group Motus Ventures and UL, a strategic investor, in July.
Participants were selected to ensure perspectives were represented from across the transportation value chain, including OEMs, Tier-1 suppliers, transportation network companies (TNCs) and stack, sensor and other technology providers. All engagement projects are already in progress or in the final stages of planning.
Through its structured early engagement program, Metamoto will foster the process of learning via an accelerated feedback loop to enable iteration before the launch of the company’s Simulation as a Service offering for autonomous system training, testing, debugging and validation workflows.
Metamoto’s simulation products deliver scalability and precise, unified simulation of a variety of sensors including LiDAR, camera, radar, GPS, IMU and others. Furthermore, Metamoto’s Simulation as a Service offering allows customers to run tests across a spectrum of environmental and hardware parameters and unique edge cases to identify isolated outcomes, performance boundaries and system tolerances.
