The autonomous driving simulation specialist, Morai (CEO: Jeong Ji-Won and Hong Jun), is collaborating with M-City in the United States for joint research in the field of virtual validation and related technologies for autonomous driving.
M-City, located in Michigan, USA, is an autonomous driving-exclusive test city. Both organizations have signed an MOU and a membership agreement to secure fundamental technologies and establish core strategies for mutual cooperation. Through this agreement, Morai’s simulation capabilities and M-City’s infrastructure will be utilized to facilitate the exchange and advancement of autonomous driving technologies between Korea and the United States.
This collaboration follows a business agreement signed in May 2023 between the KATRI(Korea Automobile Testing & Research Institute) and M-City. Morai was selected as a virtual evaluation platform provider and will supply its simulation platform to M-City for this purpose.
Morai and M-City are collaborating on various initiatives, including establishing a virtual testing environment for autonomous driving, data sharing, international joint research, and developing overseas business opportunities. Specifically, the two organizations plan to build a connected and automated vehicle (CAV) technology validation and demonstration environment. M-City will enhance its testbed environment based on Morai’s autonomous driving simulation platform to achieve this goal.
