TDW is a 3D virtual world simulation platform, utilizing state-of-the-art video game engine technology
A TDW simulation consists of two components: a) the Build, a compiled executable running on the Unity3D Engine, which is responsible for image rendering, audio synthesis and physics simulations; and b) the Controller, an external Python interface to communicate with the build.
Researchers write Controllers that send commands to the Build, which executes those commands and returns a broad range of data types representing the state of the virtual world.
TDW provides researchers with:
TDW is being used on a daily basis in multiple labs, supporting research that sits at the nexus of neuroscience, cognitive science and artificial intelligence.
