We are a VR+AI high-technology company, founded in early 2015, focused on creating a virtual “51World” — a real, complete and sustainable virtual world, which makes the real world more efficient, safer and better. We now have three major product lines—51Sim-One, 51City OS and a series of real-estate digitalization products, which are in the fields of an automated driving car, smart city, and real estate, respectively.
Our Vision: A Real World in VR
Focus on creating a virtual “51World” — a real, complete and sustainable virtual world, which makes the real world more efficient, safer and better.
51VR is committed to leading VR-based computer graphics and artificial intelligence (AI) to achieve cross-disciplinary technological breakthroughs, and ultimately creating a virtual “51World”—a real, complete and sustainable virtual world, which makes the real world more efficient, safer and better.
Three major product lines: 51Sim-One, 51City OS and a series of real-estate digitalization products
Based on the experience for many years in realizing visualization, 51VR established a cross-disciplinary R&D team aiming to build the construction of the scene library and the standard of the virtual simulation; therefore, we create 51Sim-One.
51Sim-One is a simulator for training automated driving cars, enhancing the efficiency of algorithms, and shortening the R&D period and testing cycle for many Chinese testing institutions. It can reconstruct large-scale virtual high-fidelity and diversity scenarios, based on real-traffic situations.
51Sim-One has editing tools in those functions: vehicle setup, scenario edition in HD map, sensor simulations, testing operation etc. With these functions, automated driving cars can be trained in vary situations and in tremendous times on the platform. After training, the system generates a report which will help the testing institutions to examine their algorithms.
There are tons of difficulties to implement smart cities in China since none of the existing models have deemed viable. We happen to have accumulated more than 1.2 million digital assets over years which can be considered as leverage in this industry.
51City OS simulates the reduction of the city, providing a clear view of buildings, roads, etc, which helps the local government for optimizing the urban plan. Smart technology can help improve efficiency and optimize services—waste management, traffic flow, disaster evacuation, and energy use.
A series of real estate digitalization products
We have been cultivated in the real estate for years. Real estate developers can use our digitalization products as a sales tool, letting potential customers experience their future home, which gains the willingness to buy a house.
Our digitalization products are highly realistic and can be used throughout all devices, on the website, display machine, iPad, iPhone, etc.
300% growth rate every year
Since founded, the number of customers and business we served have maintained a rapid growth of higher than 300% every year. We now have served more than 500 corporate clients (including Facebook, BMW, Daimler, WM Motor, BESTUNE, Tesla, Alibaba, China Mobile, National Intelligent Connected Vehicle(Shanghai) Pilot Zone, Vanke, ΜΟΜΛ, Country Garden, JQZ Group, China Railway Construction), and other famous enterprises and institutions.
Up to now, the 51VR team has already entered 130 cities in China and abroad, which has achieved thoroughly in domestic first-tier and core second-tier cities in China.
We value the smart talent employees
We have already set up R&D Centers in Beijing, Shanghai, Chengdu and had offices in Australia, North America, Germany, and Singapore.
At present, more than 65% of all employees are R&D professionals specialized in the fields of computer graphics, machine vision, deep learning, etc. The background of the professional employees are diversified: some of them are from Stanford University, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Tsinghua University, Zhejiang University, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, and some have worked at Microsoft Research Asia, Autodesk, Crytek, CCP, Activision Blizzard, Virtuos, etc.
51VR, honored as National High-tech Enterprise in China
By 2017, 51VR had completed a total of nearly 300 million Yuan ($45 million) in financing, with investors including SenseTime Technology, Star VC, Lightspeed, ΜΟΜΛ, SPD Silicon Valley Bank, Green Pine Capital, Green Living, etc.
