An exhibition on virtual test driving

Discover innovative product solutions and application examples at Open House 2020. At the IPG Automotive booths, we introduce our latest developments and provide extensive information on the release 9.0 of the CarMaker product family. 

As every year, many of our partners also present their virtual test driving applications.

3D Mapping

3D Mapping Solutions GmbH is one of the leading experts in the fields of high-accuracy kinematic surveying of public roads, proving grounds, race tracks and rough road test tracks of any kind, railway tunnels or subway. We create high-precision reference maps as a basis for user-specific developments, advanced ADAS or driving development, testing and validation applications for autonomous driving.

AB Dynamics

Logo ABDynamics

AB Dynamics supply advanced test systems to vehicle manufacturers for suspension, chassis and steering system development, vehicle dynamics, ADAS development and driverless car technology evaluation. Systems include the advanced vehicle driving simulator allowing Driver-in-the-Loop development of vehicle chassis, drivetrain and ADAS, and SPMM 5000 measuring K&C parameters used in vehicle models.


atlatec is a 3D mapping company based in Karlsruhe, Germany. atlatec creates high fidelity 3D maps with nothing but cameras and GPS. Maps can be used for autonomous driving, for validating ADAS and for use in simulations such as CarMaker.
