VI-DriveSim is a turnkey software solution which allows users to go from offline to online simulations with one single vehicle model.
VI-DriveSim also represents the core technology for all driving simulation solutions (compact, static and dynamic) from VI-grade, for a new generation approach to system-level simulation, allowing companies to bridge the gap between virtual prototyping and testing.
Through the interface with the state-of-the-art Adams Car multibody software, it is possible to import a detailed car model running it in real-time and achieving the same results produced by the detailed non-linear model. Alternatively, the FMI interface embedded in VI-DriveSim also enables to import custom components (such as steering systems and brakes) or even an entire vehicle model different than VI-CarRealTime, if this is required for legacy reasons.
The VI-DriveSim software is also open to all main technologies and platforms for SiL and HiL simulations, such as National Instruments, dSPACE, Concurrent Real-Time, ETAS, Nvidia PX-2.
Additionally, in the past years we at VI-grade have created a set of auxiliary technologies to the driving simulators; all these technologies work together with our simulators and are interfaced with and guided by VI-DriveSim. The software features interface with the Wintax by Magneti Marelli Motorsport product for advanced postprocessing as well as with all main tire models (MF-Tyre, Swift Tyre, CDTire, F-Tire, TameTire) and traffic environments (SCANeR, VTD, PreScan, SILAB). Interfaces with other devices for eye-tracking (SmartEye), professional sound (SimSound) and active shakers are also available.
