More than 100 invited guests , politicians ,business men and scientists gathered in the laboratory halls of the Adrive Living Lab of Kempten University for the roll-out of the new advanced Vehicle Driving Simulator (AB Dynamics aVDS).

The aVDS simulator, based on a motion platform from Williams Advanced Engineering, was developed by AB Dynamics to provide extremely high dynamics and immersivity. 

It is able to reproduce either the vehicle behaviour on a race track or typical normal driving scenarios on public roads, very realistically.

Thanks to aVDS, the Adrive LivingLab can expand its research activity focused on the future of mobility, with a human-centric approach in the development of autonomous driving functions for tomorrow's vehicle.

Enjoy the video of the test carried out during the presentation by the official AUDI SPORT ABT Formula E Team driver, Mr. Daniel Abt.

The next generation software and hardware solution for monitoring, commanding and coordinating proving ground vehicle testing. GTC is a comprehensive package for all vehicle traffic at a proving ground including: Robot-controlled vehicles, ADAS platforms, human driven vehicles and fixed proving ground infrastructure.

AB Dynamics SPMM

The Suspension Parameter Measurement Machine (SPMM) from Anthony Best Dynamics Ltd is a Kinematics and Compliance (K&C) test machine that is driven entirely by electro-mechanical actuators.

It is used to accurately establish the kinematic characteristics of a vehicles suspension and steering system geometries, and the compliance characteristics of the suspension springs, anti-roll bars, elastomeric bushes and component deformations. Knowledge of these characteristics is an essential aid for suspension engineers wishing to establish a thorough understanding of the vehicles performance in terms of ride, impact isolation, steering and handling.
