3D Simulation Environment Requirements and Limitations

Automated Driving Toolbox™ provides an interface to a 3D simulation environment that is visualized using the Unreal Engine® from Epic Games®. Version 4.19 of this visualization engine comes installed with Automated Driving Toolbox. When simulating in the 3D environment, keep these requirements and limitations in mind.

Software Requirements

  • Windows® 64-bit platform

  • Microsoft® DirectX® — If this software is not already installed on your machine and you try to simulate in the 3D environment, Automated Driving Toolbox prompts you to install it. Once you install the software, you must restart the simulation.


Mac and Linux® platforms are not supported.

Minimum Hardware Requirements

The 3D simulation environment also requires:

  • Graphics card (GPU) — Virtual reality-ready with 8 GB of on-board RAM

  • Processor (CPU) — 2.60 GHz

  • Memory (RAM) — 12 GB


The 3D simulation environment blocks do not support:

  • Code generation

  • Model reference

  • Multiple instances of the Simulation 3D Scene Configuration block

  • Multiple instances of the 3D simulation environment

  • Parallel simulations

  • Rapid accelerator mode

In addition, when using these blocks in a closed-loop simulation, all 3D simulation environment blocks must be in the same subsystem.
