As a global leader in virtual test driving technology, IPG Automotive develops innovative simulation solutions for vehicle development. The software and hardware products can be applied throughout the entire development process, from proof-of-concept to validation and release.
IPG Automotive is an expert in the field of virtual development methods for ADAS & Automated Driving, Powertrain, and Vehicle Dynamics. Together with its international clients and partners, the company is pioneering simulation technology that is increasing the efficiency and robustness of development processes.
For example, CarMaker offers a simulation environment for developing autonomous driving functions; validation of algorithms for perception, sensor fusion, planning and motion control; concept studies on optimal sensor setups; sensitivity analysis on the influence and choice of relevant vehicle components (steering, suspension).
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. For racing in particular, axle design is critical for lap time optimisation. With the real-time capable MBS axles, you can conduct axle design tests – such as adjusting hard points and analysing the effects – directly in CarMaker.
