Hexagon’s Adams Real Time multibody dynamics simulation software has been verified for operation on VI-grade’s driving simulators. Many automotive engineers are said to rely on the Adams Real Time platform to build their virtual vehicle prototypes, alongside the Adams Real Time hardware-in-the-loop capabilities which bridge the gap with physical tests. Vehicle dynamics and handling simulation models can now be applied by simply selecting the Adams Real Time settings.
“The combination of VI-grade’s simulator platform and high-fidelity Adams vehicle physics empowers our customers to leverage a common vehicle model for both their offline development and connected real-time applications. This single-model development paradigm multiplies the productivity, cost reduction and product performance value that Adams provides today to enable more reliable end-to-end processes and improve collaboration,” said Chris Baker, head of system dynamics software at Hexagon. “The VI-Certified program is a stamp of approval for the robustness, reliability and accuracy of Adams Real Time, and Hexagon is proud to work with VI-grade to enable a future of zero prototypes.”
“We are excited to have Hexagon as part of the VI-Certified partner program. The program will reduce the integration burden on our customers by ensuring that the best of our third-party partner software tools work seamlessly on our simulators,” said Tony Spagnuolo, VP of business development at VI-grade. “Customers can be confident that we have validated the software they are looking to use on our simulators. They also have the assurance of regular product updates and dedicated customer support. Through our partnership, Hexagon and VI-grade are providing a valuable, time-saving solution that makes it easier for our customers to use virtual prototyping with confidence to save cost and get safe, compelling products to market on time.”
