While it’s fantastic that more simulation being used, the industry is focusing too much on visuals and gaming architectures. This prohibits the creation of legitimate digital twins.That in turn prohibits the shifting of most AV development and testing to simulation. And that means L4 cannot be reached due to the untenable and needlessly dangerous reliance on public shadow and safety driving. More in my articles below. Glad to show to the tech I am referring to. (I have shown it to a few folks at Cruise and GM. They were all more than impressed. My guess is we haven't moved forward because these folks do not want to tell the organization the core approaches Cruise uses need to be flipped. That can be a bit scary.)

Simulation Photorealism is almost Irrelevant for Autonomous Vehicle Development and Testing

Simulation can create a Complete Digital Twin of the Real World if DoD/Aerospace Technology is used

The Autonomous Vehicle Industry can be Saved by doing the Opposite of what is being done now to create this technology
