Virtually Possible - Driver-in-the-Loop Simulation for Tire Design and Development

Driver-in-the-loop simulation for tire design and developmentDriver-in-the-Loop motion simulators are becoming an accepted tool in tire design and development.  What are the limits of these systems and what can be done to improve the fidelity of the simulations?

Before physical prototypes are made and tested on real roads, tire manufacturers are increasingly turning to Driver-in-the-Loop (DIL) simulators to evaluate new variants in the lab.  The repeatable environment provided by these systems enables test drivers to make subjective assessments on the influence of the tires on a vehicle and provide feedback to support the selection of the best designs from a much larger number of choices.

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 (
