Automotive engineering students from Cranfield have been given insight into the latest advanced driver-in-the-loop simulation technology at Ansible Motion.
Simulator manufacturer Ansible Motion recently opened its doors to students from Cranfield University’s Automotive Engineering and Advanced Motorsport Engineering MSc courses. The event gave the students a rare opportunity to familiarise themselves with the technology that’s used by top OEMs and Formula 1 teams.
The day began with a presentation from Ansible Motion technical director and founder Kia Cammaerts, outlining the key challenges involved in developing an effective driver-in-the-loop simulator. Dan Walmsley, team principal of Strakka Racing, then explained the relevance of virtual testing from a racing team’s perspective and the benefits it provides.
