VI-grade offers a variety of engineering services for the development and simulation of mechanical systems in the automotive, motorsport, motorcycle, aircraft and rail industries.
We assist you with the integration of our tools and develop and apply new methods especially in the area of real-time application, control systems (Software- and Hardware-In-The-Loop), multi-objective-optimization, driving and traffic simulation.
Integration of VI-grade products
We often face the question how to introduce a new tool without disrupting the existing development process. We offer engineering services that support you with:
Definition of user scenarios
Integration of different simulation models/disciplines
Software customization and maintenance
Pilot projects to test our software within your existing process
Product and discipline trainings (at VI-grade premises and/or on-site)
Control system design and verification
Control systems are becoming more and more important in all transportation industries. Being able to design good control algorithms and verify their interaction with the complete system is vital. Our expertise covers these areas:
Control system design (e.g. ESP, EPS, ABS...)
Hardware-In-The-Loop (with dSPACE, Concurrent Computer, National Instruments, ETAS)
Driving Simulator for Human-In-The-Loop with control systems
Multibody applications are essential to carefully predict product performances, cut development costs and reduce time-to-market. VI-grade has a highly skilled team that cumulatively owns hundreds of years of expertise in multibody simulation. Some application examples are:
Complete durability process (modeling, road definition, load prediction, fatigue analysis)
Implementation of specific components (i.e. Adams UDEs)
Writing of user macros and dialog boxes
Custom analysis implementation
Automatic postprocessing and report generation
Driving simulator technology
Driving simulators represent the link between simulation and testing which are nowadays getting closer and closer, with the possibility to "drive" virtual models already in early stages of the design process. In the last years, VI-grade gained huge experience in these areas:
Motion cueing algorithms that can be applied to any kind of motion platform
Vehicle model - graphics - motion platform integration
Selection of the best motion platforms based on customer's needs (sim-on-sim)
Driving simulator sessions at VI-SimCenter
Creation of photorealistic graphic scenarios using VI-GraphSim
Engineering for the motorsport industry
You can't engineer a victory... but we can help you to increase your chances to win with:
Off-line and track-side simulation and performance maximization
Development of special component algorithms (tires, aerodynamics, suspension, differential, etc.)
Laptime simulation and vehicle optimization
Telemetry data conversion for usage in and comparison with simulation data
2D/3D track measurement and data elaboration
On-track telemetry assistance
Use of our software packages for racing cars and motorcycles
