Report Summary:

The popularity of autonomous vehicle testing and validation has increased in recent years. OEMs and other companies are using these types of simulators in order to recreate autonomous driving environments and scenarios without the use of real world driving, with the aim of speeding-up the safe introduction of highly automated vehicles.  This report analyses many of the different simulator platforms that are now available.
