Israeli startup Cognata, Ltd., a provider of simulation software and training data for ADAS and autonomous vehicles, has partnered with South Korean based LiDAR perception Company – Seoul Robotics. Cognata will provide 3D point cloud synthetic data which it says will boost Seoul Robotics LiDAR perception software technology.
Founded in 2016, Cognata is a global supplier of large-scale automotive simulation for the Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) and autonomous vehicle markets. The company boasts that it offers an end to end platform which it says accelerates time to market by delivering simulation solutions for the entire automated driving product lifecycle, from training to testing to deployment.

Advanced driver-assistance systems are electronic systems which have been developed to help drivers to drive and park more safely. A computerized system works together with a driver. ADAS systems use automated technology, such as sensors and cameras, to detect nearby obstacles or driver errors.
Have you ever driven a car with one of those little monitors connected to a rear camera? The monitor allows a driver to see what is behind him when driving in reverse. This saves you the pain of twisting your neck all the way to the side when you stick it out the window when looking back, while giving the driver a better view. It also beeps a warning when you get too close to an object.
Reduce training time and accelerate your development cycles with our extensive and ever-growing vehicle libraries of everything from electric scooters to tractor trailers.

Lidar is a component of ADAS. Lidar measures distances by illuminating a target with laser light and measuring the reflection with a sensor. Differences in laser return times and wavelengths can then be used to make digital 3-D representations of the target.
“We are excited to partner with Seoul Robotics – a leading LiDAR perception company, and we see a great future in our mutual ability to use synthetic data for advanced LiDAR detection training,” said Danny Atsmon, CEO and founder of Cognata. “We are proud to be part of the development of this market by partnering with such an innovative Korean based Startup company.”
“Seoul Robotics is happy to collaborate with the leading AV simulation company, Cognata. Using realistic synthetic data will enable Seoul Robotics to create more robust and reliable LiDAR perception solutions in the AV and smart city space by tackling hard edge cases that cannot be tested in the real world,” said HanBin Lee,founder and Captain of Seoul Robotics.
