Applus+ IDIADA has chosen the newly developed motion platform, DiM250 (Driver-in-Motion), designed by VI-grade and engineered and manufactured by Saginomiya.
The simulator, which is equipped with software developed by VI-grade, will be installed at the Applus+ IDIADA site in Tarragona, Spain.
“We are extremely excited to report the adoption of our new DiM250 driving simulator at Applus+ IDIADA, marking the third commercial success for a simulator of this kind in the last five months,” said Guido Bairati, international sales director at VI-grade.
“We are looking forward to the collaboration with such an important partner and provider of engineering services to several major automotive companies worldwide.”
“The DiM250 driving simulator is a powerful tool that will play a major role in the chassis development projects IDIADA undertakes and will also complement our existing facilities in this area of expertise,” said Alexandre Català, vehicle dynamics and NVH manager at Applus+ Idiada.
“Driving simulators are becoming instrumental in the vehicle development process and we at Applus+ IDIADA need to offer our customers cutting-edge technologies to support them in their development and testing activities.”
The DiM250 configuration has been adopted by two other major automotive OEMs and provides an extended workspace in comparison with the standard DiM150 configuration.
