Houdini as a playground for training self-driving vehicles? [Machine Learning]


Hello folks!
Question is pretty self explanatory . The story behind it is that I’m working on a self-driving car project, and it’s a bit hard to make a real-life simple closed environment for the car to produce training data { camera feed & controls }. So, I thought why not use Houdini to get all these data without actually building the real thing?

I also read that game engines can do this job, you just drive the car and the training data piles up
but I never used game engines, kinda hoping Houdini can do the same.

Tell me what’s your thoughts about this
