Microsoft launches project AirSim, an end-to-end platform to accelerate autonomous flight

By GeoConnexion - 2nd November 2022 - 15:56

Project AirSim is a new platform running on Microsoft Azure to safely build, train and test autonomous aircraft through high- fidelity simulation. Project AirSim uses the power of Azure to generate massive amounts of data for training AI models on exactly which actions to take at each phase of flight, from take-off to cruising to landing. It will also offer libraries of simulated 3D environments representing diverse urban and rural landscapes as well as a suite of sophisticated pretrained AI models to help accelerate autonomy in aerial infrastructure inspection, last-mile delivery and urban air mobility. It arrives as advances in AI, computing and sensor technology are beginning to transform how we move people and goods, said Gurdeep Pall, Microsoft corporate vice president for Business Incubations in Technology & Research.
