Global Automotive Driving Simulator Market – Key Players
The major players operating in the global automotive driving simulator market include AutoSim AS, Teknotrove Simulator System Pvt. Ltd, OKTAL, Cruden B.V., Mechanical Simulation Corporation, Dallara, Moog, Inc., IPG Automotive, ECA- Group, and Ansible Motion.
Automotive driving simulators belong to the class of human machine interface (HMI) that are prominently used to mimic the near-exact conditions prevalent during driving. These find substantial applications in education & training institutions for vehicle user training programs, and R&D activities for pre-testing of new vehicles, advanced driving assistance systems, and other technologies.
Driving simulator helps automotive manufacturers to test the performance of autonomous vehicles considering factors such as city traffic during rush hour. It is capable of simulating autonomous vehicles depicting their own motion characteristics as well as their interaction with other connected or non-connected vehicles. Furthermore, increasing investment by automotive manufacturers in developing advanced high fidelity simulator, which provides good quality control loaders, image generation, and extensive motion capability is another factor fueling growth of the market. For instance, in April 2018, according to rFpro, it launched the world’s first commercially available platform to develop autonomous vehicles in simulation. Using a digital environment to accurately represent the real world, the technology enables vehicle manufacturers to test their systems in every scenario imaginable. The system includes a library of real roads created through highly-precise scanning technology, which forms the basis of the simulation.
