VI-grade signs reseller agreement with Addfor


VI-grade, a supplier of automotive driving simulators, has entered into a partnership with Addfor, a provider of AI-driven software, to become the exclusive distributor of Addfor’s Sybille software for the automotive market. Sybille is designed to generate real-time value forecasts of signals, effectively eliminate transmission delays, and enable control actuation anticipation, thereby accelerating the vehicle development process.

The Sybille software integrates with VI-grade’s driving simulators and HiL technologies, bringing greater capabilities. Sybille harmonises all simulator cues, ranging from motion, graphics to sound and tyre squeal, increasing accuracy and and refining the immersive driving experience. Sybille’s AI-based algorithm also facilitates the remote connection of a vehicle model with a driving simulator or a HiL test bench in different locations, which can help enable global collaboration in a development programme.

This reseller agreement is intended to enable VI-grade to directly distribute Sybille to its customers. Through this partnership Addfor will now have access to VI-grade’s customer base, including OEMs, Tier 1 suppliers and research centres, which together have more than 120 simulators installed worldwide. The implementation of Sybille will also extend to VI-grade’s SimCenter facilities across the globe, ensuring its availability and accessibility at various automotive hubs.

“The integration of Sybille into our driving simulators and HiL solutions unlocks new possibilities for our customers, with the potential to revolutionise their vehicle development process,” commented Guido Bairati, managing director of VI-grade. “Moreover, by combining AI-based algorithms with our tools, we are embracing a global megatrend, ensuring that we stay ahead of the curve and effectively meet the ever-evolving demands of the dynamic automotive industry.”
