As lockdown grounds engineers, all face-to-face training is cancelled – but the show must go on. How can the sector ensure professionals learn the essential practical skills they need? Is virtual reality the answer?
Designed to meet demand from chassis and safety engineers, compact simulators are now offering opportunities across multiple departments of OEMs to successfully solve market challenges in a more immersive environment.

As COVID-19 continues to impact the global automotive industry, OEMs and Tier Ones are looking at how to minimise cost, catch up lost lead time and ultimately, create new products that will stimulate demand to buy again. Ansible Motion, manufacturers of driving simulators, explains the role simulators can play for an industry looking to catch up where it can. Matthew Beecham spoke to founder Kia Cammaerts about the possibility of a new 'Machine Age'.
The development of simulation to become an all-encompassing development tool has been gradual - but Ansible Motion has been ahead of the curve from the start. Autosport headed to Hethel to find out just what that means.
Designed to meet demand beyond traditional use cases, compact simulators are now offering opportunities across multiple departments of OEMs to solve market problems in a more immersive environment. Gone are the days of the simulator being solely the realm of chassis and dynamics engineers or human factors specialists. More powerful, immersive and accurate simulators, with the capability to validate AI, understand an interaction with parking assist technology or even control and receive feedback from an engine on a dyno in another building, means demand goes far beyond the established use cases.

The automotive industry is seeing rapid changes in the way it provides mobility to the mass population.
When Ford elected to transform its upcoming all electric SUV from a straightforward compliance vehicle to a Mustang it made life a whole lot harder for the development team.
