At the Politecnico di Milano, an innovative cable-driven DiM400 DYNAMIC Driving Simulator by VI-grade has been adopted in February 2021. The Driving Simulator has been installed at the Bovisa site of the Politecnico di Milano (Technical University of Milan) and will be mainly used for performance studies of vehicles and subsystems related to new Material & Component Design, Ride & Handling, Real Driving Emission Applications, Active Safety Systems (ADAS), Automated and Connected Vehicles.

“Our adoption of a DYNAMIC Driving Simulator based on the most innovative technologies and equipped with redundant degrees of freedom for a proper separation between low and high frequency motions is possible thanks to a substantial investment from the Government of the Lombardy Region, dedicated to sustainable mobility solutions” said prof. Ferruccio Resta, Rector of the Politecnico di Milano. “The simulator will allow Software and Hardware-in-the-Loop (SiL and HiL) studies and validations, giving us the opportunity to participate together with selected partners in research projects dedicated to ground vehicle engineering, road safety and future vehicles.”

Politecnico di Milano joins the ever-growing family of adopters of VI-grade‘s driving simulators, with more than 100 simulators installed at worldwide OEMs, Motorsport teams, Tier1 suppliers and Engineering/R&D Centers to accelerate product development.

The project has been promoted by the Lombardy Mobility Cluster, under the supervision of the Lombardy Region Government, with the aim to create a pole for serving the automotive companies of the Lombard regional cluster, ranked fourth at European level.
