Growing simulation capabilities allow to obtain very accurate models of vehicles, active systems, tire models, controllers and other vital automotive components. Ultimately, all these subsystems and models share one common interaction interface: the road, that is where the physical interaction between the vehicle and the environment occurs, thus impacting the dynamics of the complete model and its subcomponents.
When it comes to driving simulators, together with a detailed road model – necessary for a reliable simulation - there is the need for an extremely realistic graphical rendering of the environment, in order to guarantee an immersive experience for the driver.
All application fields, from motorsport to ADAS, through ECU and tire development, are impacted by a proper representation of road conditions and environment.
VI-grade can help you to laser scan, model, texture and deliver whatever piece of tarmac for your simulations.
No matter if it is a country road, a racetrack, a city area or an entire proving ground, VI-grade can provide a turn-key service to measure and render the road profiles as well as the surrounding environment.
Laser scanned roads with precision obtained to the centimeter, allowing tremendous accuracy in road/tire interactions.
Incredibly detailed models of the environment including road signs, tarmac color changes, buildings and realistic lighting environment.
Feel the feedback of the road, leading to an accurate driver feeling.
Experience photorealistic models of the surrounding.
Use the same files and models for your workstation and driving simulator applications, allowing consistency in your engineering process.
All models are designed to be driven in real-time, with no need of a special version for simulator applications.
