Darmstadt (Germany), December 9th, 2020 – VI-grade is pleased to announce that Chinese automobile parts company FAWER Y-TEC Automotive Chassis System Co. Ltd. (Abbr. FYCS) has chosen VI-grade’s DESKTOP Simulator for its engineering activities. The simulator will be installed at the Company’s Headquarters in Changchun, China and will be used to perform preliminary subjective evaluation for steering and handling.
FYCS is a leading global supplier of chassis parts and mainly produces front and rear subframes, control arms, longitudinal arms, tie rods and other assembly products aimed to provide international customers with one-stop solutions. Until now, most of the component tests had to be performed on a physical car, which was not only expensive, but also time-consuming. By installing the VI-grade DESKTOP Simulator, FYCS is now able to conduct preliminary subjective evaluation of the chassis components at an early stage of the design phase.
The DESKTOP Simulator is the entry-level solution in the Driving Simulators product line provided by VI-grade. It offers the possibility to test drive the vehicle directly from your desk, validating its basic behavior. Featuring steering wheel and pedals, it is the perfect validation solution for those engineers who want to start using a Driving Simulator to boost simulation activities and to test models in real-time whilst getting a subjective feeling.
"The ability of carrying out driving tests in early stages of chassis system design enables to optimize vehicle driving performance in order to better meet customer expectations and OEM’s design requirements, tightening the connection between Chassis System supplier and OEMs”, said Yu Ruifeng,R&D Director at FYCS. “VI-grade’s DESKTOP Simulator will be a powerful tool for System suppliers and OEMs to actualize Top-Down design, reducing vehicle development cycles and costs.”
“We are very excited to report the installation of our VI-grade DESKTOP Simulator at FYCS headquarters in Changchun” said Richard Liu, China Country Manager at VI-grade. “The DESKTOP Simulator is the ideal tool for FYCS to perform preliminary subjective evaluation for steering and handling, thus optimizing their development cycles. We are looking forward to further expanding our cooperation with FYCS and to implementing additional chassis applications of our DESKTOP Simulator in the future.”
