Bridging Reality to Simulation
CMU-Recon system builds realistic models of real-world environments by leveraging high-fidelity lidar scans and RGB images. The models can be loaded into simulation environments to support development of advanced navigation autonomy, artificial intelligence, virtual/augmented reality, etc.
To try a CMU-Recon model with our autonomous navigation systems running on the top, please refer to the 'Integrating CMU-Recon Models' section on our Ground-based Navigation Autonomy and Aerial Navigation Development Environment websites (releasing soon).

The CMU-Recon model above loaded into a simulation environment, running our autonomous navigation system on the top. The rendering runs on an i7 CPU at 20Hz (no GPU involved).
