The company’s simulator allows drivers to experience vehicles with ADAS and feature:
Data acquisition for full suite of virtual vehicle and driver monitoring channels;
Realistic cabin environments;
Computation power to connect to sophisticated vehicle and environment models;
Live motion cue and vehicle model tuning; and
Automotive-specific low latency motion, vision, haptic, and audio solutions for immersing experienced drivers without motion sickness.
“The realization of our concepts, once executed in silicon and steel, became the world’s first engineering-class driving simulator. Many years, and many simulator deployments later, we remain at the vanguard of human and hardware in-the-loop technologies,” said Kia Cammaerts, Ansible Motion founder and director.
With the company’s technology it can see if and when a car does something unexpected and how a person would react in the testing area. When used, a person is placed in a room large enough for the company’s monitor to project images of roads, highways and scenarios around the front end of a mock vehicle’s body. According to the company, original equipment manufacturer glass is used in the front of the mock vehicle when the simulator is active. This technology could lead to safety advancements for newer vehicles, which in turn could reduce the amount of auto glass damages and need for repairs or replacements.
“Our latest simulator enables car manufacturers to design better and safer vehicles and assess many proposed technologies early in the design cycle,” Cammaerts added.
