One of the most important needs of engineers and designers in the automotive industry has always been to be able to have reliable data available quickly and to evaluate the various variants starting from the design phase.
Today, the objective is achieved thanks to the use of driving simulators: the ultimate virtual design tool, allowing companies, suppliers and research institutes to bridge the gap between physical testing and simulation.
Moreover, Driving Simulators give designers and managers new, unimaginable opportunities to develop vehicles in line with contemporary trends and able to successfully solve market challenges.
Are you looking for the highest and most profitable cooperation between engineers and test drivers? VI-grade offers you the best solution.
RENT A PLACE TO DEVELOP YOUR IDEAS
Automotive designers do not always have access to a driving simulator to progress their design more quickly. However, access is now possible thanks to the network of VI-grade's SimCenters: a growing cluster of engineering sites located worldwide aimed at giving you access to state-of-the-art technology and expertise to shift from testing to simulation.
In just one facility, our SimCenter Udine, located in the north-east of Italy, offers direct access to our full range of driving simulators (COMPACT, STATIC, DiM) as well as to our software and hardware development engineers.
Book a dedicated session at SimCenter Udine and you will have the chance to perform vehicle dynamics, ride&comfort, ADAS/AV, HMI and motorsports simulations using your own vehicle model and components. Experiment and improve your products by driving our simulators and interacting with our software developers.
TURN THE KEY OF DESIGN
Driving simulators play a crucial role in the automotive development. Motorsport teams, car manufacturers and suppliers, universities, research and development institutes are transforming their engineering an activities with driving simulators.
