Virtual test-driving technology leader IPG Automotive has opened offices in Beijing, China, and Frankfurt am Main, Germany, strengthening its national and global presence.
The continuing development of advanced driver assistance systems with a view to automated driving, the steady progress in other relevant technological fields as well as the complexity of today’s vehicle development, have made virtual tests indispensable. Virtual test driving is the ideal complement to real test driving and delivers significant savings in time and costs.
Customers and partners from the OEM and supplier industries across the globe rely on the simulation solutions of IPG Automotive’s CarMaker product family.
“Our customers look to these innovative products for applications in the field of automated driving, for powertrain development or vehicle dynamics design. We look forward to providing our customers with even broader and more direct support from our new offices, for the seamless development, calibration, testing and validation of mechanical and mechatronic systems within the whole vehicle,” said managing director Steffen Schmidt.
The Karlsruhe, Germany-based company already has subsidiaries in China, France, Japan, Korea and the USA, as well as offices in Braunschweig and Munich.
