Darmstadt (Germany), April 28th , 2022 – VI-grade, the simulation and driving simulator company that accelerates product innovation by bridging the gap between simulation and physical testing, today announced the complete installation and commissioning of a VI-grade COMPACT Simulator at the Ford Motor Research and Engineering Center in Nanjing China. The 3D virtual data that simulates Ford China’s test tracks in Nanjing will also soon be integrated into the driving simulator solution.
By leveraging this innovative solution consisting of the VI-grade COMPACT Simulator and the Virtual Testing Tracks, engineers are able to evaluate vehicle dynamics performance, primarily on steering and handling capability, in a 3D virtual environment. Ultimately, the solution can help engineers shorten production development time and better meet needs of Chinese consumers. Because the COMPACT Simulator utilizes the same tool chain as the VI-grade STATIC and DYNAMIC DiM Driving Simulators, it also represents an optimal technical reserve for the application of a more advanced simulator.
“We are excited to provide our COMPACT Simulator solution for Ford China,” said Richard Liu, China Country Manager at VI-grade. “In conjunction with the Virtual Testing Tracks data, the COMPACT Simulator is an innovative tool to develop and test designs more efficiently, reducing time-to-market for future products. We are looking forward to further expanding our cooperation with Ford in the future.”
