Neovya supports the PICS-L laboratory of Université Gustave Eiffel (the largest public research center for transport and mobility in France) in the 3D simulation of districts and urban environments by providing an automated conversion software.
In order to make the most of its investment on the CityEngine platform, Université Gustave Eiffel wishes to develop a tool to convert 3D databases of districts and cities modeled with CityEngine to a file format compatible with its new simulation platform developed under Unity.
The format chosen is the OpenDrive format. Unlike other formats typically used in navigation systems, it is particularly suitable for simulation applications which require an fine description of the geometry of the roads, and of their logical characteristics (type of lane, direction of traffic, etc.)
« 3D digital models and virtual reality are strategic tools for the work of the PICS-L research laboratory and more generally for the various laboratories of the Université Gustave Eiffel using our simulators. For us, it is essential to be able to simply use our CityEngine 3D urban environments databases with our SILEX simulation software .
Thanks to Neovya’s technological expertise and software know-how, we are able to simplify this complex interaction process and deploy very quickly an operational solution to automate conversion operations. » says Fabrice VIENNE, Research Engineer, Université Gustave Eiffel
