Vehicle Dynamics

Competence right from the start

Virtual test driving supports you in developing chassis and chassis control systems

A perfectly designed chassis is a prerequisite for safe, comfortable and – as desired – sporty driving. This is what our company is built on – we got our start in axle design in 1984. Today, CarMaker offers you a software package that supports you in chassis design throughout the development process, whether with integrated MBS axles or in conjunction with IPGKinematics. In the area of vehicle dynamics, you can implement virtual test driving at any point – from model-in-the-loop to steering feel adjustment on our Steering-in-the-Loop Test Bench.

The quality of vehicle dynamics simulation is largely dependent on the vehicle model. In order to correctly and efficiently simulate vehicle dynamics, a particularly precise and high-performing model is needed. CarMaker is used for simulation-based ESC homologation to approve virtual vehicle variants, which means that the quality of our models is tried and tested. 

Virtual test driving was developed in cooperation with test driving experts to make it possible to perform the same maneuvers in the virtual and the real world. By using virtual test driving to support real-world test driving, you can manage the effort involved in the validation and testing of chassis and vehicle dynamics control systems.
