Ansible Motion opens R&D facility

We attended the opening of Ansible Motion's new R&D workshop in Norwich, UK, which is home to the company's latest Delta series simulator

 


Simulator specialist Ansible Motion opened its new R&D workshop in Norwich, UK on May 27. The £2m (US$3.1m) facility, which was installed in just six months, is located at the company’s existing premises at the Hethel Engineering Center, and comprises two workshop spaces.

The center piece is Ansible Motion’s new Delta series simulator which features a 6DOF motion system. It is powered by 16 5GHz computers and has five projectors offering a frame rate five times faster than a cinema, projecting a 240° wraparound view on an 8m screen.
 


According to Ansible Motion founder Kia Cammaerts, the system will be key to developing future technologies: “The systems are sufficiently complex now that we have to have our own to develop. We need to be able to actually analyze technologies because it is no longer possible to just do that through drawings and computer programs.”

The new Delta series will also be used as a technology demonstrator to potential customers. “There are some new technologies on the simulator that we haven’t released to our customers yet. We could generally categorize those under advanced computation systems,” Cammaerts said.

The computer system behind the simulator consists of several different localized systems connected via networks and a graphics rendering system which, depending on the time requirements, can use between seven and 12 PCs alone. Meanwhile 5,700m wiring is used to run the facility.

More on simulator technology in the upcoming issue of Automotive Testing Technology International.
