A computing system may create a realistic simulated model of a driving experience based on sensor data from a sensor system and interconnection mechanisms among automotive entities (e.g., a simulated entity, a real-world entity, etc.) for testing and developing a vehicle. The computing system may represent a platform for converging human-driven and autonomous vehicle simulations (e.g., interoperation between heterogeneous automotive entities) to simulate movement of vehicles in the realistic simulated model. For example, the computing system may allow the swapping of an emulated physical vehicle with a different simulated vehicle (e.g., a prototype vehicle) in the realistic simulated model while producing the same validation results. The computing system may include an information system that stores the repositories for the sensor data and/or metadata (e.g., based on the sensor data) and automotive entities. The information system may also provide a user interface (UI) with functionality for enabling a user (e.g., a vendor testing a prototype vehicle) to initialize and execute realistic simulated models. For example, the information system may enable the user to perform various functions with respect to the realistic simulated model, including, but not limited to, changing the simulation speed of (e.g., slowing time flow, increasing time flow, etc.), configuring, creating, editing, monitoring, analyzing, importing, exporting, starting, pausing, skipping, rewinding, and/or repeating the realistic simulated model.
