MTS And McLaren Receive Prestigious Award For Their Unique Automobile Simulation Technology
The VDS enables vehicle manufacturers and suppliers to substantially accelerate product development by conducting real-world driving simulations of vehicle performance before prototypes are available. Extending "driver-in-the-loop" technology, the VDS allows a driver to perform live driving evaluations in order to provide engineers subjective (human) feedback of components, systems and full-vehicles in advance of physical prototyping. These early insights help engineers assess driver experience more accurately and earlier in the development cycle than previously possible.
Future VDS modules will also support the realization of similar speed and efficiencies during development of ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) in which the various effects of driving conditions, vehicle performance and reactions are critical developmental evaluation factors. The VDS is especially useful for conducting safe, meaningful studies of driver behavior in response to dramatic road events. The rapid processing and synchronization of performance data with vehicle and terrain models is represented in the dynamic motion platform with high fidelity providing the human driver realistic experience of a broad array of real-world driving conditions and scenarios.
The fully immersive simulation system combines state-of-the-art hardware and advanced software solutions to replicate nearly every aspect of the driving experience with the highest degree of accuracy - from the feel of the suspension to the response of the brake pedal, right through to the feedback from the steering mechanism. These capabilities enable developers to conduct detailed analysis of how changes to vehicle designs will impact key performance parameters.
"This award is testament to the hard work that the respective engineering teams of McLaren and MTS are putting into driving forward development of human-centric automotive development tools," stated
"The automotive design and development process is changing rapidly," added Dr.
