The CVEDIA team supports security and defence organizations in testing, training, and validating their AI systems. CVEDIA is an industry leader in the use of custom synthetic data for large scale deployment. Our systems have been precisely built to minimize the gap between real and synthetic data for fluid algorithm training.

CVEDIA simulation tools are designed from the ground up to support and accelerate development from the earliest to the latest stages in the development process. Our SynCity simulation platform provides broadly representative data for new projects, and is used in data intensive classifier training to augment real world data, fill in gaps in coverage, and control for sampling bias. The result is rapidly produced, higher quality training sets that dramatically reduce field data collection, data storage, and labelling expenses.

Use Case

Ask a question

A security organization came to us with an issue with their autonomous vehicles – they followed a header – follower design, where each vehicle in the convoy behind the header would match its actions. Under test circumstances this system worked correctly, but once deployed, unexpected sand conditions blinded and disabled their LiDAR sensors, causing their machine learning system to malfunction.

This organization had gathered sand testing data in a separate climate that did not effectively match the deployment conditions. Luckily, the defect was noticed early on, and the vehicles were recalled before any incidents occurred. We were contacted to see if synthetic data could fix the issue and ensure it didn’t happen again, as gathering effective training data in the deployment territory was impossible.

CVEDIA was able to recreate matching conditions using the little LiDAR sensor data they had recorded in deployment. Using this, a matching simulated environment was created where their machine learning team was able manipulate sand, dust, and weather conditions using the SynCity GUI and Python API. Being able to export extensive training data relating to this issue enabled the team to effectively train algorithms against all possibilities, allowing for a successfully validated vehicle system.
