Data-driven simulation for training and evaluating full-scale autonomous vehicles

Project description

Docs PyPIDownloads Stars PyPI

VISTA is a data-driven simulation engine for autonomous driving perception and control. The VISTA API provides an interface for transforming real-world datasets into virtual environments with dynamic agents, sensor suites, and task objectives. Because VISTA is data-driven, it is side-steps many of the traditional issues of simulators, such as their lack of photorealism and ability to accurately model reality.


VISTA can be installed into your Python 3 environment using the PyPi package interface.

>> pip install vista

Please also ensure that you have all required dependencies to successfully run VISTA. Details on dependencies are outlined in the documentation.
