Vehicle simulator developer Ansible Motion has unveiled a new research and development centre that features an advanced driving simulator at the Hethel Engineering Centre in Norfolk, UK. The £2m facility features a Delta Series full motion simulator that is designed for use by highly skilled drivers looking to provide accurate and subjective feedback when evaluating new handling, steering and dynamic performance on virtual proving grounds and race tracks.
Kia Cammaerts, founder of Ansible Motion, said: “Simulators such as the Delta series in our new R&D Centre offer vehicle manufacturers a no-compromise method to reduce development costs and time. Using our simulator has cut the validation time from 10 days to just three for an Electronic Stability Control programme for one particular car maker. Apply those kinds of savings in cost and time across the whole car and it explains why we are now getting more and more enquiries from global OEMs to see what our simulator can do.”
