SAN MATEO, Calif.--()--Duality AI, the company behind Falcon, a digital twin integration platform, today announced the expansion of its product suite to include FalconCloud, the Google Docs of digital twin simulators, and FalconEditor, which was made possible by Duality’s work to repurpose Epic Games’ Unreal Editor for digital twin workflows.

While Duality’s Falcon suite has a proven track record of helping customers such as DARPA, Honeywell, KEF Robotics, and P&G solve complex engineering problems with digital twin simulation, its previous versions were only accessible by select teams running on local high performance graphics hardware. The newest additions to the Falcon product suite lower the barriers to adoption, and unlock powerful collaborative workflows. With FalconEditor, customers can now use standard 3D techniques to create and modify simulation-ready digital twins and scenarios, while FalconCloud enables teams to access all features of FalconSim directly from their web browser. FalconCloud also helps teams collaborate across time zones and removes IT burdens that often limit simulation capabilities, offering a significant reduction in cost and time investment.

"The idea that simulation should only be used by siloed simulation experts is quickly becoming outmoded," said Apurva Shah, co-founder and CEO of Duality. "With smart systems permeating all levels of modern work, we're already seeing digital twin simulation becoming necessary across the entire product life cycle."

With FalconCloud, Duality’s best-in-class digital twin simulator, FalconSim, is now fully accessible from a web browser, enabling customers to run high-fidelity simulations at massive scale, without any special hardware or software installations. This allows all involved parties to review scenarios and results from anywhere in the world and empowers engineering teams to coordinate and collaborate with greater efficiency via seamless access to assets, scenarios, and simulation sessions. FalconCloud is fulfilling the growing business need of democratizing digital twin simulation to make it accessible to collaborators throughout the smart product lifecycle, from developers to marketing to end customers.

Recent developments in Embodied AI have highlighted the need for robust simulation tools for safe and efficient testing and training of these revolutionary robotic systems. "Falcon has been purpose-built for testing and training smart systems," continued Shah. "Integrating generative AI models was the logical next step to enabling the next generation of robotic systems. And with FalconCloud, exploring Embodied AI is now accessible to everyone as a free web-based application." As more advanced AI models become available, Duality will continue to integrate them with Falcon and make them readily available to customers.

In addition to these new features, FalconSim received a number of updates to improve virtual sensors, including enhanced sensor rendering capabilities, collecting more granular sensor data, and increasing multi-sensor system rendering speeds. Support for the creation of new sensor types not already offered in Falcon’s library has also been added.

"In the past, KEF often faced a trade-off between simulating expansive environments and maintaining high fidelity. With Duality's Falcon simulator, this compromise is no longer a concern. Falcon enables us to rigorously test our autonomy algorithms in photorealistic environments an order of magnitude larger than any we’ve previously used," said Fraser Kitchell, CEO of KEF Robotics. "The evolution of these simulation tools can dramatically increase the velocity at which we validate our aerial autonomy software, and to that purpose, Duality's Falcon platform has been the best visual scene generator that we've worked with."

Through an extended agreement with Epic Games, even more Unreal Engine 5 functionality is now accessible for digital twin simulation applications. FalconEditor leverages Unreal Editor, one of the best-in-class level editors for gaming and content creation, and adds features specifically designed for digital twin and scenario authoring to improve workflow efficiency. The new product uses a 3D interactive tool to enable the intuitive creation and editing of diverse simulation scenarios, as well as digital twins of environments, items and machines. In an integrated development environment (IDE) users can immediately ensure all functions perform as expected in simulation, allowing for rapid iterations on both system and sensor characteristics within the embedded context in which these smart systems are expected to operate.
