“Drive ahead of the curve: Dynamic DIL simulators redefined”

From F1 to Future Mobility, the way a vehicle moves its driver or rider, and the way they respond to that movement, is key to success. Dynisma embraces bandwidth and latency challenges to create driving simulators with a much tighter loop between the vehicle models and the drivers or riders. The result? The most dynamic, realistic and scalable turnkey solutions in the world.

The presentation describes Dynisma’s revolutionary approach to motion simulation with examples of what this is enabling engineers to study and develop on road and track.

Don’t miss this exciting presentation where Dynisma will also be introducing the pinnacle of driving simulator technology through the launch of the highly anticipated DMG-360XY – the ultimate tool for lane change, ride evaluation and development.

“Virto, managing and optimising virtual test drives in the cloud”

This presentation will introduce Virto, IPG Automotive’s latest innovation. Virto is a set of scalable, cloud-connected web applications that enable:

– Virtual vehicle development workflow management by automating the simulation pipeline,

– Development time reduction by centralising the management of simulation parameters and models, and managing vehicle data and scenarios,

– Teamwork in a collaborative environment between the different entities, departments or stakeholders involved in development, testing and validation.

Each individual Virto application can be integrated into an existing tool chain on the customer’s site, making simulation accessible to all. The Virto platform enables greater collaboration between teams working on a common project. Virto also reduces the time needed for testing, by running simulation scenarios in parallel in the cloud. The platform increases the coverage and depth of tests, while respecting the project timeline.

DIL system integration and how it can make or break the immersion in your simulator

When building a driving simulator, one of the biggest challenges is ensuring that visual, audio, haptic, and motion feedback are presented realistically. The quality of each feedback channel depends on the quality of the hardware used. A 360-degree LED wall provides better visual feedback than a TV screen, and the same goes for motion bases. However, the human brain does not evaluate the quality of visual, motion, haptic and audio feedback individually. Driving a car is a multi-sensory experience which means that a proper balance and synchronization of the feedback presented to the driver is just as important as the resolution of the visual system and the DOFs of the motion system. Actually, proper integration is the key in unlocking the full potential of your simulator hardware investment.  
In this presentation, Dennis Marcus will discuss the benefits of utilizing the Cruden Panthera software framework and how it can enhance the immersion of any simulator.
