Abstract: In this contribution we outline the MPI-based, scalable, physics-based simulation framework SynChrono, and its use in autonomous vehicle studies in off-road conditions. SynChrono builds on the simulation capabilities of Chrono, but shows better scaling behavior, making it a useful environment for multi-vehicle mobility studies. When combined with GymChrono, a platform based on OpenAI Gym for reinforcement learning, SynChrono serves as a useful tool for integrated vehicle studies in both on- and off-road environments.
