The necessity of motion for immersive simulation

The necessity of motion for immersive simulation

There are many challenges we face in the domain of automotive simulation. While it is of course important to recognize the clear and numerous benefits of simulation, it is also important to recognize the need to implement appropriate systems in a simulation...

What makes a good DiL simulator

Driver in the Loop   The concept of driving simulators emerged in the 1930’s for research on traffic safety. The concept shown here by DeSilva in 1936 is already close to some simulators used these days. At the time, the idea was already to bring the driver into...

Why simulation and physical tests are complementary?

Why simulation and physical tests are complementary?

Before simulation, validation of new systems under test (complete vehicles, ADAS command law, headlights, etc.)  were only physical tests, which means that we deployed several versions of prototypes on a track in order to make sure that the behavior is what was...
