AutoHawk 16, a flexible hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) solution from VI-grade, powered by Concurrent Real-Time, has been integrated into Dallara’s driving simulator processes to keep up with the increasing complexity of vehicles models. It will also help the Italian race car manufacturer to shorten the development cycles of completion motorsport teams.

By acquiring AutoHawk 16 – a robust 16-core real-time system – Dallara will be able to run its static and dynamic driving simulators with complex vehicle dynamic models and tire models. It will also enable the manufacturer to connect to HIL subsystems which include vehicle and powertrain ECUs, and wet braking systems.

AutoHawk 16 will provide more reliable and precise simulations, as the workload can be split over multiple cores to ensure hard real-time requirements are met.

“With the new AutoHawk 16, we are confident to elevate our ability to provide exceptional high-performance competition vehicles and unparalleled support to racing teams from all over the globe,” commented Alessandro Moroni, head of DiL activities and track performance at Dallara. “We are excited to take this next step in our simulation capabilities and bring even more value to our clients.”

“We are proud to partner with Dallara and empower them with the tools they need to continue their success in the highly competitive motorsports industry,” said Alessandro Baldari, EMEA HiL sales manager at VI-grade. “The integration of AutoHawk underscores the growing industry’s demand for a cost-effective, complete and open solution that encompasses hardware, software and integration services. This highlights the value that VI-grade’s advanced simulation solutions bring to the table, enabling companies to stay ahead of the curve in an ever-evolving industry.”
