The Automotive Engineering and Design Center at Italy’s University of Brescia has installed the Compact Simulator designed by VI-grade. The simulator is equipped with dedicated software, as well as active shaker components for an enhanced feeling of driving realism.

The Compact Simulator is the entry-level model in VI-grade’s range of driving simulators and features a driver’s seat, a fully adjustable steering wheel, dashboard, pedals, gear stick and screens, and it’s copact form means it can be fitted into an engineering office.

“We are very proud to be the very first Italian university to feature such an advanced R&D tool and to offer specific education focused on professional driving simulation to automotive engineering students, ” said Prof. Marco Gadola, head of the Automotive Group at the University of Brescia. “The cooperation we established with VI-grade is fostering our research on vehicle dynamics, system integration for innovative powertrains, driver-vehicle interaction, and sustainable mobility in general”.
