IPG Automotive has further optimized its CarMaker, TruckMaker and MotorcycleMaker simulation tools with the release of version 5.1. This latest package offers a wide range of new functionalities for applications in vehicle dynamics, driver assistance and powertrain testing.

The new interface with GT-Suite from Gamma Technologies expands on the characteristic openness of IPG Automotive’s product portfolio and enables the direct integration of GT powertrain models into CarMaker.

In version 5.1, 3D visualization in IPGMovie includes both horizontally and vertically mirrored views, for example for use as a rearview mirror in driving simulators. In addition, IPGMovie provides the option to synchronize visualization with the simulation data display of IPGControl.

The functionalities of Test Manager have also been thoroughly expanded. The newly developed Test Configurator makes it possible to automatically generate test variants, thereby filling test catalogs considerably faster. An additional programing interface allows Test Manager to be controlled remotely using scripts.
