The Delta S3 has a frivolous construction and low overall height. It can be mounted without floor reinforcements, minimizing associated installation expenses and time despite the exceptional dynamics.
FREMONT, CA: Ansible Motion recently confirmed that BMW Group has upgraded its new, leading Delta S3 driving simulator to obtain more accurate and representative data to develop, improve, and validate the modern vehicles and technologies virtually.
Ansible Motion’s compact, lightweight Delta S3 simulator will ensure BMW Group can do more representative testing in a virtual world. “We are extremely proud to collaborate with BMW Groups respected engineers to deliver, a DIL simulator specified for its needs both today and in the future,” says Kia Cammaerts, Founder, Ansible Motion. “When we developed the Delta S3 it was intended to be integrated into automotive development programmes to enable virtual validation, meaning that our customers can devote efforts otherwise used to do real-world, physical testing and utilise that time for developing better cars.”
Ansible Motion, a committed specialist in Driver-in-the-Loop (DIL) vehicle simulation technology for over a decade, has made several developments to its third generation Delta DIL to create a tool precisely for engineers to deliver extraordinary dynamics, motion, and immersion. Shunning legacy hexapod and gaming motion platforms that struggle to reproduce the feeling drivers need in situations like simultaneous braking and turning, Ansible Motion has lengthened the range and fidelity of its patented S3 motion base.
Presenting a true six degrees of freedom with the entirely independent surge, sway and yaw, heave, pitch and roll, BMW Groups engineers will gain from the S3s larger motion space, with four meters travel in surge sway and greater than 360° yaw travel. For motorsport applications, the Delta S3 warrants motions can be sustained for longer durations assuring more realistic experiences like long cornering or sustained G-forces. Due to its capability to accelerate swiftly and to its highly dynamic maneuvers, the S3 is perfect for EV powertrain and torque mapping, all while satisfying professional development drivers’ response time demands.
With a prominence on offering the most immersive environment, BMW Group’s new vision system will be upgraded to contain LED projectors to reconstruct a vivid experience, with stunning graphics from rFpro. The Delta S3 has a frivolous construction and low overall height. It can be mounted without floor reinforcements, minimizing associated installation expenses and time despite the exceptional dynamics. Flexibility to empower different vehicle programs to use the simulator is assured due to Ansible Motions Quick-Change System (QCS), which permits vehicle cabins or cockpits to be switched over in under 20 minutes.
