Teaching autonomous vehicles how to drive poses many logistical and safety challenges. Our mission is to provide these vehicles with the virtual environments they need to get it right before they hit the real world. Parallel Domain's software takes you from map data to full 3D worlds with a single click of a button.


Parallel Domain is a leading provider of 3D environment generation software for autonomous vehicle simulation. Our groundbreaking content generation technology offers configurable, detailed, and massively scalable simulation environments. Whether you’re generating an entirely new city or tweaking the details on a single street corner, our systems will produce living worlds that have traditionally required extensive manual labor. Plug our content into your existing simulation solution and outdrive your competitor’s entire catalogue overnight. Generate a new world and do it again tomorrow.

Key functionality

Automated generation

Parallel Domain provides fully automated environment and scenario generation software. If you'd just like to get started, try subscribing to our extensive 3D world library first.

Customize any attribute

Any element is adjustable and programmable, from the shape of the road to the placement and season of vegetation. Simulate the world both as it is today and as it might be tomorrow.

Intelligent map & data fusion

Our systems understand various forms of map data and automatically pull from additional databases to fill gaps, improve detail, and give baseline coverage where you need it.

Dynamic agents and scenario management

These worlds are not just static; they are living, breathing cities that allow for both controlled scenarios and emergent behaviors that are simple to integrate with your simulator.

Layered simulation, from symbolic to sensor

Our layered approach to world generation enables a full spectrum of simulation applications, from rapid symbolic (sensorless) simulation to high fidelity, multi-modal sensor simulation.
