DESKTOP Simulator

VI-grade’s entry-level solution for Driving Simulation

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 your vehicle directly from your desk, validating its basic behaviour.

Highlight of this solution is the new 16 core AutoHawk DESKTOP tower computer that provides the full power of a true real-time system in combination with a powerful windows PC, all in one machine. This is made possible with utilizing the RedHawk hypervisor technology KVM-RT.

The DESKTOP Simulator features a steering wheel and pedals and it can be placed directly on your desk. It is the perfect 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 DESKTOP Simulator from VI-grade is the ideal tool for automotive OEMs that wish to use a desktop technology to prepare models to be used later on a more advanced simulator (COMPACT, STATIC and DiM) and that need to quickly test specific components.

This kind of simulator can also be used by universities and research centers, to develop and test dedicated control algorithms, as well as to expose their students to driving simulator technologies.

The DESKTOP Simulator is equipped with the exact same software installed on COMPACT, STATIC and DiM Driving Simulators from VI-grade.

This makes it very easy to upgrade from a DESKTOP Simulator to a more advanced Driving Simulator, leveraging previous investments and experiences.
