Simulators are an integral part of the motorsports industry. They enable testing in a variety of conditions and locations without having to venture outside the workshop, and can help drivers shave seconds off their lap times before even setting foot in a circuit's paddock. They have been part of the wider automotive industry for decades, and have mainly been built around the principles of the Stewart platform, or hexapod. Such systems were the aerospace industry's simulation tool of choice for decades, before migrating slowly to the automotive industry.
Ansible Motion has developed its Delta series of dynamic driver-in-the-loop (DIL) simulatos to answer specific queries from automotive and motorsport reams, and the range is intended to help plug the shortfalls of even the most advanced hexapod.
