The first set of virtual files representing proving grounds located at the IDIADA testing facilities in Tarragona, Spain is now available both for offline (on software products such as VI-CarRealTime from VI-grade for real-time vehicle simulation) and online (on all driving simulators from VI-grade) simulations. In detail, the “Dry Handling”, “General Road” and “Comfort” tracks are now available as graphic scenarios in VI-GraphSim as well as road data files.
Applus+ IDIADA has expanded its virtual development services with two new driving simulators: the dynamic DiM250 and compact simulator. These simulators, combined with our expert team, allow unique possibilities for virtual testing in areas such as chassis development, vehicle dynamics, ADAS, autonomous driving and Human Factor applications.
Lead Vehicle Dynamics Engineer Mattias Davidsson explains how the new S60 was developed with the help of Volvo Cars’ advanced, state-of-the-art DiM driving dynamics simulator from VI-grade.
