Motorsport simulator experts to demonstrate simulation software, vehicle model integration and content 

Visitors to Professional Motorsport World Expo 2015 are invited to meet Cruden’s vehicle dynamicists and software developers for hands-on demonstrations of the latest simulator software for motorsport (November 11-13; Cologne; stand 6050).

This includes Cruden’s flexible, in-house developed motorsport vehicle model (CVSM); details of how simulation engineers can seamlessly integrate their own vehicle models with, and customize the motion of, a Cruden simulator; and information on tracks and content.  Cruden will show its new, standalone SISTer (Server for Interaction with Surfaces & Terrains) software, which enhances tire models by accessing multipoint 3D scanned surface data. Cruden will also demonstrate its Telemetry Analyzer and simulator Set-Up Tool functions.

“As a provider and integrator of all modular elements of the simulator package, Cruden is ideally placed to advise the industry on the latest technology advances and their integration, whether for new or existing simulator projects. All our hardware and software, from top platform design and projection systems to track-building and artificial intelligence, is designed to have race teams and motorsport engineering houses up and running quickly and easily. Thanks to increases in computational power and new developments being driven by the automotive industry, simulators are increasing in realism all the time. This is a good time in particular for race teams to evaluate new software add-ons, such as our SISTer application, available to them,” says Frank Kalff, Cruden’s commercial director.

Motorsport engineers are invited to meet with Edwin de Vries and Martijn de Mooij on the Cruden stand. De Vries is a senior modelling and simulation engineer who is widely recognised for his PhD research on model-based brake control including tire behaviour. As technical development manager, Martijn de Mooij has been responsible for project managing many of Cruden’s more than one hundred simulator installations over the past ten years.
