Simulation specialist, VI-grade, has secured an order for its cable-driven DiM400 simulator from the China Intelligent and Connected Vehicles (CICV) research institute. The simulator will be installed at CICV’s facility in Beijing to further enhance research capabilities in the field of intelligent driving safety, passenger comfort, human-machine interface, virtual vehicle development, and performance tuning.
The simulator will be equipped with a VI-grade software stack for motion cueing, vehicle model, graphic environment and active technology management. The cockpit will include equipment for driver’s biosignal acquisition and processing, and driver monitoring systems for advanced ADAS and HMI simulations.
A CICV representative responsible for the future deployment of the driving simulator said of the system, “By employing the DiM400 cable-driven simulator in our vehicle development and testing, we expect to perform faster dynamic verification of the design model and system, objectively analyse the human-machine interface, while simultaneously reducing development costs and accelerating the overall R&D cycle.”
