Simulating Motion Sickness for Driverless Cars

Simulating motion sickness for Driverless CarsAnsible Motion is using Driver-in-the-Loop simulation technology to enable designers to make piloting an autonomous vehicle less nauseating.

With more people likely to be reading or using screens in their autonomous cars, engineers are already turning to simulation technology to prevent sickness in the car

When self-driving cars become the norm, we’re going to have much more spare time, as we’ll no longer be chained to the steering wheel with our eyes locked on the road ahead. This is brilliant news as we’ll have more time to read, work and play driving games on our phones instead. But it could have one downside: Motion sickness.

Motion sickness is already a problem for many passengers – and when we all become passengers, it seems inevitable that it’ll get worse. In fact, experts are already predicting that between 6% and 12% of Americans can expect to get sick travelling in an autonomous vehicle.

But there is some good news: Car manufacturers today are already working on designing vehicles that will mitigate motion sickness – and they are using driving simulator technology from Ansible Motion to do it.

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.
