Made for real behaviour

The new modes of driving and the next generation of ADAS systems require the most efficient tools to shorten the time-to-market of today’s innovations. At the core of the specifications of the SimPULSE driving simulators: the highest possible level of immersion. The driver experience is the key: AVSimulation used the know-how from the 20 M€ + class simulators (SimELITE) to design this new product.
When focusing on the driver and passenger’s behaviour in the next generation of vehicles, the degree of immersion of the users is defining the accuracy and added value of the observations.
Unlike motorsport applications where the drivers can be trained to adapt to the driving simulators, multi-functional simulators need to provide homogeneous levels of all cues, from visual to vestibular.

AVSimulation is in a unique position in the market: the engineers in charge of the design and validation of the driving simulators share the same offices as the development team for the SCANeR software suite. By working hand in hand, they can elaborate optimal solutions at the service of the end users.
The integrated Cockpit Exchange System (C.E.S.) inherited from the SimELITE simulators is a game changer. The architecture and the interiors of the vehicles are evolving quickly, and AVSimulation wanted to make it possible to update the driving simulator without excessive costs. The C.E.S. also makes it possible to drive one cockpit when a second one is being prepared for the next experiment or is used as a static simulator.

Ready for multi-simulation

SimPULSE can run in multi-simulation with other driving simulators (SimEASY, SimPRIME+, HIL…). It makes it easy to introduce real drivers into the simulated traffic.

Versatility, affordable, so real!

SimPULSE offers the best performance / cost ratio on the market. Based on the computation of the cueing software for the optimal rendering in standard to intense driving situations, the motion system is based on a proven architecture, with even higher performances.
The engineers were aiming at providing the triple 5: 5m/s², 5m/s and excursions of a minimum of 5 meters in all directions.

The results of the AVSimulation’s calculations bring an even more efficient system, paving the way for a wide range of driving conditions. Experienced users of driving simulators know that the most important is not the maximum values of the accelerations, but that the key is also the duration of the accelerations felt by the drivers. The homogeneity of the dynamics brings the drivers to realistic situations with physical and psychological fidelity.
