Driving Simulation Without Tears—Or Nausea

IEEE Spectrum article: Driving Simulation Without Tears, Or NauseaDriving simulators that fool only most of your senses most of the time can make you sick to your stomach, particularly when you’re pushing your virtual car to its limits, as test drivers must do.  

“A really good human-factors driving simulator might have a 90-millisecond delay, or 0.09 second, and even that’s enough to upset a professional driver,” says Phil Morse, a mechanical engineer who works for Ansible Motion, a simulator company based in Norwich, Britain. “They feel it in a different way than common drivers, just as a professional musician might experience a concert  in a different way than the general audience.

About Ansible Motion

Founded in 2009, Ansible Motion creates and deploys technology associated with the physical and logical simulation of human-directed 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.
