We design, model, simulate, and test automated vehicles. Any shape, any size, any number of wheels.
We create the simulation environment. Describe it to us. Give us your data. Or use one of our "worlds".
Tell us the desired functionality. We can develop both the higher and lower level control algorithms.
Tell us your choice of sensors. Or we can help with choices and installation locations
We provide the tools for automated vehicle simulation & analysis
Our Test Environments
The Oztech Modular Design Environment (MODE)
The Oztech Modular Design Environment is a flexible simulation and testing environment that can be utilized for different autonomous, semi-autonomous, or collaborative vehicles in different application domains and different operational scenarios.
We request point-cloud data from expected simulation environment to create the digital-twin of the environment in our simulation tools.

Why oztech mode ?
The Oztech modular design environment (MODE) provides you with a testbed for the development and testing of autonomous vehicle solutions. This includes a suite of customized environments, vehicles, and sensors.
Custom environments can be modeled and imported into MODE or created from point cloud data. The current configuration comes with a mine and a track environment.
Leverages the Gazebo simulator for multibody dynamics modeling of many different vehicle configurations.
Integration with ROS
Integrated with ROS for message passing, node management, and package management. This allows the simulation environment to leverage the libraries and full capabilities of the ROS environment. This also allows for co-simulation with MATLAB, Simulink, and SUMO.
Rich Sensor Suite
Several sensor models such as camera, LiDAR, radar, GPS, and IMU are available through plugins and can be customized to your specifications. Custom sensors can be created in 5ROS nodes or Gazebo plugins.
Leverages rviz for sensor and data visualization.
Vehicles & algorithms
A variety of different vehicle types are provided:
Semi-truck with trailer or flatbed attachment
Custom vehicle configurations and dynamics can also be developed per specifications.
Several algorithms have been developed for the control of these vehicles:
Path planning & tracking
Mapping and localization
MODE2D interface, easy and customizable. A video example for testing a single scenario visualization using MODE2D
