GM Shares More About the Simulator Technology Used to Develop the 2020 Corvette Stingray

corvetteblogger_logo_300x100General Motors recently pulled back the screen a little to show the world some of the technology used in the development of the 2020 Stingray in a recent interview with GM lead performance engineer, John Wilkinson.

Wilkinson explains that their Driver-in-the-Loop simulator played a key role in the new Corvette’s engineering, using real-time computation and their driving simulator to allow engineers to “evaluate how changes performed and how deviations to one system interacted with other systems in a virtual model, using the same physics and electronic control systems as a full prototype, [allowing them] to streamline changes and strengthen vehicle performance throughout every stage of development.”


Changes are always coming in the automotive world, and Wilkinson says he can readily attest to that fact.

“The industry and skill set required is changing faster than it can be taught,” he says, “so blending a strong understanding of fundamental concepts with a dynamic ability to react quickly and problem solve is the only way to keep up.”

“Leveraging the Driver-in-the-Loop technology and applying what we have learned from testing dynamics on other vehicles, like the Corvette, will maximize the capabilities of our EV products,” Wilkinson says. “This will make the next few years extraordinarily challenging and exciting...”

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 (
