Can driving simulators help advance the connected car?

Driver in the Loop (DIL) simulation has long been considered a powerful tool for both vehicle and component development. For traditional vehicle development work – such as ride and handling, steering, and powertrain – driver feedback is essential, offering subjective information that no data logger can deliver.

connected-car-technologyDriving simulators place real people into direct contact with experimental systems, and this is arguablythe main reason why so many car makers have invested in them. As simulators become more widely accessible to engineers and grow ever more computationally powerful (our own Delta Series simulators are typically powered by an array of 16 5GHz PCs), their performance levels are rising to the point where they also can be used for validating Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), and various connected vehicle systems.

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 (
