Ansible Motion, a driver-in-the-loop (DIL) vehicle simulation technology specialist, has widened its pool of talent with three new appointments to its engineering and design teams, as it responds to recent growth in demand. The recruitment drive comes during what the UK company reports is a successful period of growth, driven by the rise in demand for portable simulation technology during Covid-19 across vehicle manufacturing and motorsports sectors.
Jack Morter has been given a design internship at the company, following his Bachelor of Engineering degree in Aerospace, Aeronautical and Astronautical Engineering at UWE Bristol. Working alongside chief designer Bob Stevens, Morter will be immersed in all aspects of simulator design as he embarks upon his new career.
With over 10 years’ experience in the industry, Kenny Bolingbroke is stepping into the newly created role of electrical engineer. Bolingbroke previously worked at Proeon Systems and will be responsible for increasing Ansible Motion’s electrical engineering capabilities through building and testing.
Also moving into a new company role of electrical designer is Justin Goodrum, building on more than 15 years’ industry experience and having previously worked at Proeon Systems and Briar Chemicals. Prior to that, his academic credentials include a first-class Masters degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from the University of Nottingham. In his role, Goodrum will be responsible for panel design, heading up the electrical engineering group and overseeing the design and build of electrical components.
Kia Cammaerts, founder and director of Ansible Motion said, “We couldn’t be happier in welcoming such talented individuals to strengthen our team, who will no doubt all play a pivotal role in helping us develop simulation technology for the fast-evolving needs of a market that includes OEMs and racing engineers. In these changing times a strong, skilled team is needed, and that is what we have.
“Against the current backdrop of significant job losses and redundancies happening almost daily across the UK, we are extremely proud to support the economy and industry through introducing more skilled workers and young talent to a thriving business developing some of the world’s most advanced, unique immersion technology that will assist the future of autonomy.”
All three appointees will be based at Ansible Motion’s Hethel site in the UK, which features its £2m research and development centre used to develop and showcase its advanced simulation technology for the automotive industry.
