Back to Reality

Automotive_testing_technology-International_logoATTI interviewed several industry professionals about the testing areas where simulation is king, the parts where physical testing is still needed, and which of the two is their preferred method of development. Kia Cammaerts, Technical Director of Ansible Motion, weighed in.

Here is an excerpt from the interview:

Cammaerts: "The most exciting subjective experience in simulation is being able to take ultra-high-performance vehicles out in a totally safe but nevertheless extremely exciting and extremely stimulating driving environment; but that's not really the biggest use of simulators.


... We think probably the biggest trend is in the ability to skip over model generations of mules. Virtual prototyping or digital product development is meaningless unless it actually achieves better products, faster products to market or cheaper products to market. The ideal thing would be for it to develop and for it to enable all three.

The most exciting part of it for me is seeing customers actually reduce their development cycles and increase the confidence in their first physical prototypes. ... Moving the digital boundary right up to physical sign-off is the goal."

About Ansible Motion

Founded in 2009, Ansible Motion creates and deploys technology associated with the physical and logical simulation of human-experienced vehicles. We offer a range of automotive Driver-in-the-Loop (DIL) simulators featuring advanced computational and mechanical performance capabilities, and industry-unique motion and immersion solutions that create compelling virtual worlds for drivers and product development engineers.

Ansible Motion DIL simulators are used by automotive and research organisations around the globe to place real people into direct contact with imagined vehicles, on-board systems and situations. Our DIL simulators are designed, built and developed at our factory and R&D Centre in Hethel, England.

In 2022 we were acquired by AB Dynamics plc (
