Darmstadt, January 25th, 2022 – VI-grade, the simulation and driving simulator company that accelerates product innovation by bridging the gap between simulation and physical testing, today announced receiving three separate orders for DYNAMIC Driving Simulators in Q4, 2021. These orders, from both new and existing customers, were placed by automotive customers located in APAC and EMEA. The orders consist of a DiM400, a DiM500, and a DiM250 DYNAMIC Driving Simulator, reflecting the growing need of driver-in-the-loop simulators tailored to different workspaces and functional requirements.
These three new dynamic driving simulators will be installed in 2022 and are in addition to the orders for 20 other DESKTOP, COMPACT, COMPACT NVH and STATIC Simulators VI-grade received in 2021.
Driving simulators are the ultimate automotive development tool, and VI-grade’s driving simulators are the industry standard. Regardless of the type of vehicle developed, the discipline being addressed, the frequency range investigated, or the amount of available space in the engineering facilities, VI-grade’s product line boasts a driving simulator to meet any development need. VI-grade Driving Simulators are complete, unique and open solutions.
Complete - because they are turn-key solutions and span the entire design cycle from concept to sign-off
Unique - because they are based on innovative, patented architecture perfectly tailored to simultaneously reproduce accurate low-frequency chassis behavior and high-frequency body behavior
Open - because they easily interface with commonly used 3rd party software that’s required for the development process.
“We are beyond excited to welcome both new and existing customers to the ever-growing community of VI-grade driving simulator users”, commented Guido Bairati, Managing Director of VI-grade. “Despite the many challenges we faced in 2021, our team was able to secure 23 new orders, with both brand-new customers and existing users of our technology. Our driving simulators provide unique development solutions that will let them significantly reduce their reliance on and use of physical prototypes. This will reduce their overall development costs across multiple engineering disciplines.”
