Darmstadt, Germany, February 23rd, 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 adoption of the VI-grade Cable-Driven DiM400 Simulator at China Intelligent and Connected Vehicles (CICV) Research Institute. The new Driving Simulator will be installed at CICV’s facility in Beijing to further enhance research capabilities in the field of intelligent driving safety, passenger comfort, human-machine interface, virtual vehicle development, and performance tuning. The DiM400 Driving Simulator will be used for multidisciplinary and cross-field research as well as to provide customers with high end engineering services aimed at both reducing development costs and accelerating the development cycle.
“By employing the DiM400 Cable-Driven Simulator in our vehicle development and testing, we expect to perform faster dynamic verification of the design model and system, objectively analyze the human-machine interface, while simultaneously reducing development costs and accelerating the overall R&D cycle”, commented a CICV representative responsible for the future deployment of the Driving Simulator.
“We are pleased to announce the adoption of our Cable-Driven DiM400 Simulator at the renowned China Intelligent and Connected Vehicles Research Center”, said Richard Liu, China Country Manager at VI-grade. “The DiM400 is the optimal tool for CICV and the perfect complement to their existing research capabilities. Thanks to its innovative cable-driven system allowing a greater range of motion, the DiM400 provides a highly realistic driving experience and immersion, which is essential in the development of intelligent and connected vehicles.”
The DiM400 simulator will be fully equipped with VI-grade software stack for motion cueing, vehicle model, graphic environment and active technology management. Furthermore, the cockpit will include equipment for driver’s biosignal acquisition and processing and driver monitoring systems for advanced ADAS and HMI simulations.
