Cable-driven DiM DYNAMIC Simulator

Discover the revolution of driving simulators

The DiM400 (and higher) is the newest addition to the DiM family and adds a host of state-of-the-art, new technologies to advanced driving simulators.

Leveraging the concept of the original DiM150 and DiM250, the DiM400 adds a unique cable drive system for the lower stage to enable a larger motion envelope for even longer time exposure.

For the upper stage, a new hexalift component enables an improved motion envelope by increasing available vertical travel, which in turn leads to a better vertical feel under combined loading events.

Cable-driven DYNAMIC Simulators are VI-grade's response to the market request for simulators with larger range of motion, higher performance, and broader application areas such as ADAS/AV and NVH. 

Cable-driven DYNAMIC Simulators set a new high-bar for simulator performance, since they retain VI-grade's signature architecture of a lower stage (that translates and rotates in a plane to represent the chassis and tire/roadway dynamics) coupled with an upper stage, 6 degree-of-freedom mechanism (that faithfully recreates the higher-frequency vehicle body motion).

This architecture allows to speed up the tuning process, ultimately leading to a better and more immersive driving experience.

Cable-driven simulators are uniquely able to easily adapt to client-specific budgetary and space requirements. They can be configured in any size, ranging from 4 meters of surge and sway up to 15 meters and beyond.

Cable-driven simulators up to 5 meters in size come with a fixed screen.  For simulators larger than 5 meters, the screen is replaced by a dome or other visualization equipment, such as VR headsets.

VI-grade Cable-driven simulators are the first and only simulators that adapt to your needs… and not vice-versa!
