SimPRIME+ and SimPRIME

SimPRIME+ and SimPRIME simulators provide immersive simulation with the help of a 6 DoF realtime motion system, real car interior (seat, steering wheel, gear lever…), The SCANeR studio simulation software runs on four high-end PCs and feeds three large and ultra high-resolution displays with incredibly realistic images.

When choosing SimPRIME+ or SimPRIME you do not need any additional software or hardware. Based on actual car components, it is a turn-key simulation solution where all the hardware and software is already installed and configured. Each component has been selected by AVSimulation engineers to provide the best possible quality. Last but not least, SimPRIME+ and SimPRIME are designed, assembled and tested in France. They are CE certified and available in left and right-hand drive steering configurations. 
In addition, SimPRIME+ and SimPRIME come with a monitoring console with two LCD monitors. The monitoring console is the best tool to ensure the driver is 100% immersed in the simulation, it eases the work of the researcher for the preparation and management of the experiments.

USE CASES

Human Factors and ADAS

SimPRIME and SimPRIME+ are two excellent tools for studies where the driver must be sufficiently immersed in driving. Both simulators feature a real car cockpit, to allow measurements on the driver’s behavior.
SimPRIME+ simulators are used for driver-centered research (driving strategies, traffic interaction, physiology, driver awareness). They are also the preferred platform for work on validations of new driver assistance systems and explorations of new driving modes (autonomous vehicles and transitions). The movements felt faithfully on SimPRIME+ are necessary for the realism of situations where the dynamics of the vehicle inform the driver. This is the key to reliable measurements on reaction time, comfort felt etc.

SiL, MiL, HiL

SimPRIME+ and SimPRIME are natural candidates for software in the loop (SiL), model in the loop (MiL) and hardware in the loop (HiL) testing. SimPRIME provides the driver with high quality controls and feedbacks, and can be connected to test benches. Other examples include cases where SimPRIME+ or SimPRIME drives an engine bench or enables a driver to validate the behaviour of ECUs and/or HMI prototypes at very early stages.
SCANeR studio is the simulation software that powers SimPRIME+ and SimPRIME. It is open, modular and conforms to the industrial protocols and standards (ROS, FMI, OpenScenario, Simulink…). You can easily connect SimPRIME+ and SimPRIME to all kinds of hardware or include your own code in C++, LabVIEW or Python.

Motion (only on SimPRIME+)

SimPRIME+ comes with a 6 DoF real time motion system for an enhanced realism in the driving experience. The benefits of the motion system are key in the engineering evaluation of powertrains where the reaction of the vehicle model needs to be immediately felt by the driver. The motion system comes on removeable wheels and does not require any anchoring to the floor. The motion system is controlled by the MOTION module of SCANeR studio.
