We are happy to announce the 2019 edition of our International Conference! The event, dedicated to executive managers and experienced engineers belonging to automotive and transportation companies, engineering firms and universities and research centers from all over the world, will be held on May 14th-15th, 2019 at the CONGRESS PARK conference center, located in the city of Hanau, Germany (in the outskirts of Frankfurt). The conference will offer to the VI-grade international community of users, partners and prospective customers the possibility of discussing the latest trends related to system-level virtual engineering, hardware-in-the-loop, controls and driving simulation. Particular attention will be once again given to VI-grade’s current solutions and development plans for real-time simulation, HIL, SIL, traffic simulation and ADAS, autonomous driving, vehicle energy efficiency and tire modeling. The event will offer keynote and technical papers, podium discussions and workshops, as well as an interesting technical showcase area in which VI-grade and its partners will present their solutions. The 2019 event will also feature an Ice Breaker social event in the afternoon of May 13th, where all customers/partners will be invited for an informal get-together and to learn more about the new and forthcoming driving simulation technologies provided by VI-grade and partners.
“Building up on the success of the previous events we are extremely happy to announce the 2019 edition of our Users Conference, confirming our intent of organizing one major event per year for our user’s community” said Guido Bairati, Vice President Global Sales, VI-grade. “We are looking forward to providing to our international community the chance of sharing their latest projects and advancements with our simulation solutions in front of an experienced audience.”
We are very pleased to attend the 2019 Self Racing Cars event, to be held from March 23rd to March 24th at Thunderhill Raceway Park in California, US.
This special competition enables companies and start-ups mainly operating in the Autonomous Driving and Artificial Intelligence field to test out their newest technologies and to improve their performance in realistic driving situations at high speed. Awards will be given for the teams that get the car by the fastest and the most accurate means around the race track.
VI-grade will participate to the "Tire Technology Expo 2019" to be held from March 5th to March 7th, 2019 in Hannover, Germany.
VI-grade will be present at the event on March 6th at 12.15pm, in the "Modeling Tires and Tire/Vehicle/Road performance" session (Stream 6) with a presentation authored by our Automotive Industry Manager Mathieu Grob and dedicated to the usage of advanced tire models on the Driving Simulator.
Working alongside with Barco and project:syntropy, professional system integrator and display solutions expert, VI-grade will showcase a compact driving simulator at ISE 2019, featuring the new Barco FL40 projector series.
Following the successful launch of the FL40 at I/ITSEC in Orlando November 2018, this is the first time the FL40 is showcased publicly in the EMEA region: in the Barco Hospitality suite a two channel FL40 will be integrated into a compact VI-grade driving simulator with a curved screen by project: syntropy. ProjectionTools by domeprojection.com is used to perform projection alignment and calibration of the two FL40 projectors, an operation that is performed via the Barco Pulse software inside the FL40, resulting in a perfectly warped and blended projection image combined with meticulously precise correction of color, black-level and many more parameters.
“We are really excited to show off our Compact Driving Simulator for the first time at ISE together with our close partners Barco and project: syntropy. The extremely high resolution, color rich and smooth imagery provided by the FL40 really brings out the best of the VI-GraphSim that runs the driving scenarios, and this is thanks also to the way domeprojection.com and project: syntropy has worked to align, calibrate and set everything up in the system”, says Guido Bairati, VP Global Sales, VI-grade.
The FL40 and the Compact Driving Simulator solution can be found in the Barco Hospitality suite D504 on the 5th floor of the Elicium building.
VI-grade will participate to the "SIMVEC 2018" to be held from November 20th to November 21st, 2018 in Baden-Baden, Germany.
VI-grade will be present at the event with a booth showcasing our simulation solutions. Additionally our VP of Product Integration Christoph Ortmann will present a paper co-authored by Mattia Bruschetta of University of Padua, Italy and dedicated to the latest advancements of the motion cueing technology featured in our driving simulators.
