higher fidelity, deeper insight, faster development
The MTS Vehicle Dynamics Simulator (VDS) is a next-generation driving simulator designed by McLaren Applied Technologies to provide automotive OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers the means to explore and pursue new vehicle concepts more quickly and efficiently, reducing both costs and time-to-market.
Tailored for road car development, the VDS combines an all-electric, force-controlled dynamic motion platform and exclusive sensory cueing package to immerse drivers in an exceptionally low-latency driving experience. It can replicate everything from the “feel” of the suspension, steering and pedal feedback, down to sight lines from the cockpit with unmatched fidelity.
Capable of uniquely high dynamic performance, the VDS is especially useful for conducting safe, meaningful studies of driver behavior in response to dramatic road events, which are critical for evaluating Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS).
The VDS integrates seamlessly with advanced mechanical Hardware-in-the-Loop (mHIL) technology to support hybrid simulation approaches, and is adaptable for Software-in-the-Loop (SIL), Hardware-in-the-loop (HIL), and Autonomous Driving (AD) testing.
