Deakin University in Victoria, Australia, has launched what is stated to be the country’s most advanced simulator, the Genesis Simulator. The A$9m (US$6m) simulator created by Ansible Motion will provide advanced research and innovation opportunities for both the mobility and industrial sectors.

The Genesis Simulator will be used to support and carry out research and innovation partnerships with companies and industry bodies across the automotive, emergency services, transportation and health sectors.

“The addition of the Genesis Simulator grows our strong capabilities across motion simulation, with IISRI now housing more than seven cutting-edge simulators worth more than A$70m (US47m),” said Professor Saeid Nahavandi, Deakin’s pro vice-chancellor for defense technologies and director of the Institute for Intelligent Systems Research and Innovation (IISRI).

“Opportunities for advanced research and innovation with our new Genesis simulator include improving driver safety and training, automotive testing and design, fast-tracking transport prototyping, self-driving, and autonomous mobility research.”

Deakin’s deputy vice-chancellor research, Alfred Deakin Professor Julie Owens, said IISRI had a strong research, innovation and commercialization track record: “IISRI has more than 15 years’ experience in motion simulation research and houses Australia’s biggest multi-disciplinary team of world-class mobility researchers and PhD students.”
