Unreal Engine is the world’s most open and advanced real-time 3D creation tool. Continuously evolving to serve not only its original purpose as a state-of-the-art game engine, today it gives creators across industries the freedom and control to deliver cutting-edge content, interactive experiences, and immersive virtual worlds.

At Duality, we provide an autonomy simulator for digital twins and an enterprise metaverse for generating synthetic data at scale. We make the Unreal ecosystem accessible to machine learning, robotics and engineering teams.

Autonomous robots have served the industrial sector for many years, but largely as immobile, caged machines limited to highly specific tasks. Truly autonomous robots, drones, and vehicles—machines that can navigate a busy building, a desert landscape, or the open road, and do it as well as a human being can—have yet to be achieved. 

Many companies are working on attaining this standard, and are testing these machines in virtual environments where edge cases and anomalies can be rigorously tested alongside the norms, all without the machines causing danger to people, property, or themselves. But these tests require realistic virtual worlds running in real time, and a deftness with the duality of the physical and virtual.
