New Directions in DIL Simulation and Modeling

vehicle-electronics-magazinePhil Morse explains how Driver-in-the-Loop simulators have evolved into serious engineering tools.

Driver-in-the-Loop (DIL) simulation has long been regarded as an effective tool for vehicle and component development but it's fair to say that not all engineers have embraced the virtual world.  For example, those who have experienced motion sickness and the phenomenon called simulator adaptation syndrome (SAS) may harbour a general distrust of DIL technologies.  


Now, a very different, emergent approach to DIL simulation, with more emphasis on the human element is starting to attract enough of a following that DIL simulation is earning a trusted position as a vehicle development tool.

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 (
