A simulator has been developed by Ansible Motion that helps car manufacturers better understand how drivers will cope with and respond to the rising number of driver assistance (ADAS) and autonomous (AI) automotive technologies and interventions.
The latest iteration of Ansible Motion’s Delta Driver-in-the-Loop (DIL) simulator provides a safe and repeatable laboratory cell to test and validate the ADAS systems that are increasingly being fitted to new cars.
With the driver assistance systems market set to grow to US$70 billion by 2024, fueled by vehicle manufacturers pushing toward increasing levels of autonomy to address emerging legislation, the issue of how real people might react to a car receiving more notifications – or even taking control – is one that car makers are investigating seriously, according to Ansible Motion.
“Car makers are introducing more driver assistance technologies, but the level and method of intervention differs by car brand,” says Kia Cammaerts, founder and director of Ansible Motion. “...we are able to test what driver and occupant reactions will be in our simulator laboratory, far in advance of cutting any metal."
To create the most immersive human simulation experiences, Ansible Motion’s simulators provide cabin environments that reflect OEM styling and human interaction features, and offer new software connectivity for sensor simulations."
