Pushing The Boundaries of the Digital Domain

The automotive industry is on the cusp of a digital revolution, with new ideas and improvements to existing techniques set to transform the way we develop cars, says Chris Pickering.

At the other end of the spectrum, greater use of smart factories, additive manufacturing and the looming prospect of Industry 4.0 has seen the prototyping and production phases become increasingly digitized too. This is leading to a more integrated product development cycle, where designers and engineers are not just sharing the domain with each other, but with manufacturing specialists.

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.
