Apex Development Log: December-January R&D Wrap-up

2024 01 01 DevLog intro 01In 2023, our team focused on researching and testing different middleware solutions and developing in-house systems critical for constructing the Apex Engine.

This month, aside from a few systems, we are wrapping up our research and development phase and are now concentrating on refining our prototype.

This effort is essential to develop a versatile and robust engine that meets the needs of various industries using game engines for their 3D interactive products.


The Process of R&D
Through diligent R&D testing and careful middleware comparison, TGS Tech is ensuring that the Apex Engine will be a state-of-the-art tool that can meet the diverse and expanding needs of industries utilizing 3D interactive technologies. The commitment to flexibility, rigorous testing, and continuous innovation positions the Apex Engine as a leading solution in the game engine market, ready to support the next generation of 3D applications across multiple sectors.


Middleware Evaluation and Selection
The selection of middleware is critical as it bridges the gap between the raw capabilities of the engine and the specific needs of various applications, from gaming to architectural visualization and beyond. The team evaluated several middleware options based on criteria such as scalability, integration capabilities, support for advanced graphics, and real-time performance metrics. Each middleware was rigorously tested to determine its compatibility with the core architecture of the Apex Engine. This included stress-testing the middleware under various simulation conditions to gauge its reliability and performance consistency.


In-House Systems Development
Parallel to middleware testing, the development of in-house systems was prioritized to ensure that the Apex Engine remained not just a tool for game development but a comprehensive platform for a wide range of 3D interactive applications. The in-house systems focused on enhancing core functionalities such as rendering efficiency, asset management, and user interaction modules. Special attention was given to the development of systems that could support the integration of advanced AI, real-time data processing, and complex physical simulations, which are essential for industries such as smart city development and digital twins.


Industry-Specific Adaptations
Understanding that different industries have unique demands, part of the R&D testing involved adapting the Apex Engine to meet these varied requirements. For instance, in architecture and construction, the engine needed to accurately simulate physical properties and materials. In education, usability and accessibility were prioritized, allowing educators and students to interact with complex models without needing extensive technical knowledge. Each adaptation was tested for its efficacy and impact on the overall performance of the engine.


Testing Protocols and Continuous Improvement
The testing protocols were designed to be thorough and iterative, allowing for continual refinement of the engine. Feedback loops were established with potential end-users from various industries to gather insights and identify any specific needs that could be addressed in future updates. This approach not only ensured that the engine would be reliable upon release but also adaptable to future technological advancements and industry standards.


TGS Tech will provide monthly updates on the Apex Engine's progress, keeping stakeholders and clients informed about achievements and challenges. We hope these brief overviews will transparently highlight our ongoing efforts and commitment as we progress toward launching a versatile Apex Engine suited for diverse industries using advanced 3D interactive technologies.
