Atomotive-testing-technology-internationalAided by computerized technologies and advanced test machines, companies continue to push the limits of tire R&D in a now familiar effort to test prototype designs under tighter constraints than ever.

For example, DIL simulators have added new and useful information into the earliest stages of the tire development process. Having ascertained which models or designs may be suitable for the desired end application, DIL simulators are often used to put tire to track in a virtual world with a human behind the wheel for subjective evaluation.


Ian Haigh of Ansible Motion explains:

"It's important to understand that the real purpose of DIL simulators is to include human participation in what would otherwise be an offline simulation. We've seen benefits across entire development programs. The goal really is not to replace the real world, but to understand it better. In terms of the computing power available, it's incrementing all the time, and that's enabling creation of ever more complex and accurate models."

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 (
