Darmstadt, Germany, February 15th, 2023 – VI-grade today announced the adoption of AutoHawk at Dallara, a world-renowned company specializing in the design, development and production of high-performance competition cars. To keep pace with the growing complexity of vehicles models and the high demand from racing teams to shorten development cycles, Dallara has now integrated VI-grade's new HiL platform powered by Concurrent Real-Time in its processes.
The acquisition of AutoHawk 16, a robust 16-core real-time system, will allow Dallara to run its driving simulators (static and dynamic) with complex vehicle dynamic models, tire models, and connect to HiL subsystems including vehicle and powertrain ECUs and the wet braking system. With AutoHawk 16 Dallara will benefit from even more reliable and precise simulations, as the workload can be split over multiple cores, ensuring hard real-time requirements are met. The acquisition will also secure the high performance and flexibility of Dallara's driving simulators for the coming years.
"With the new AutoHawk 16, we are confident to elevate our ability to provide exceptional high-performance competition vehicles and unparalleled support to racing teams from all over the globe”, commented Alessandro Moroni, Head of DiL Activities & Track Performance at Dallara. “We are excited to take this next step in our simulation capabilities and bring even more value to our clients."
“We are proud to partner with Dallara and empower them with the tools they need to continue their success in the highly competitive motorsports industry. The integration of AutoHawk underscores the growing industry’s demand for a cost-effective, complete, and open solution that encompasses hardware, software, and integration services. This highlights the value that VI-grade's advanced simulation solutions bring to the table, enabling companies to stay ahead of the curve in an ever-evolving industry.”, added Alessandro Baldari, EMEA HiL Sales Manager at VI-grade.
