Applied Intuition

An infrastructure company for self-driving cars. It is located in Sunnyvale, California and was founded in 2017.

Applied Intuition is a California-based technology company that specializes in creating software for autonomous vehicles. The company states that its software allows for entities in the autonomous automotive industry to develop, test, and deploy their vehicles at scale.


The company has a product called Simian, which is software for autonomous vehicle simulation. It imports maps and the behavioral objects for each area of those maps to create real-world scenarios. It also has a scenario editor so that thousands of scenarios can be tested on the vehicle, allowing for clients to debug their own autonomous vehicle software if an error should occur. Progress with each situation is tracked and progress is shown on the Simian dashboard.

Applied Intuition also has analytics software. With this software, clients can evaluate their autonomous vehicle metrics and view the data being collected through the aforementioned scenarios. The client's team can access this data through URLs and utilize the information to plan for future test drives.
