A state-of-the-art cable-driven DiM400 driving simulator from VI-grade has been installed at the China Intelligent and Connected Vehicles Research Institute’s (CIVC) new engineering center in Beijing, China. Following a successful commissioning period, it is now available for rent by automotive OEMs and suppliers for intelligent chassis, intelligent cockpit and intelligent driving development.

Zhan Haiting, vice president of CICV, said, “The driver-in-the-loop approach is an advanced testing method to improve and validate intelligent and connected vehicles, and VI-grade’s cable-driven DiM400 driving simulator has high dynamic performance to support not only traditional chassis development but also cockpit optimization and intelligent driving. With this new simulator and other testing capabilities, CICV, led by the national think tank, is forging a service platform with an innovation ecosystem that supports advanced technology development and technology transfer.”

Guido Bairati, managing director at VI-grade, commented, “We are pleased to announce the successful installation of our DiM400 driving simulator at CICV, bringing our cable-driven simulator technology to the Chinese automotive market. The DiM400 is the optimal tool for CICV and the perfect complement to their existing research and engineering service capabilities. Thanks to its innovative cable-driven system allowing an extended range of motion, the DiM400 provides a highly realistic driving experience and immersion, which is essential in the development of intelligent and connected vehicles.”

The DiM400 simulator is equipped with VI-grade software for motion cueing, vehicle modeling, and graphic environment and active technology management. The cockpit incorporates equipment for driver’s biology signal acquisition and processing and driver monitoring systems for advanced ADAS and HMI simulation.
