HaptX, a start-up with offices in Seattle and San Luis Obispo, California, has launched a Gloves Development Kit for advanced simulation with haptic feedback. The wired-up VR ‘gloves’ are said to deliver “realistic touch feedback” and “natural interaction”, suitable for applications in design and engineering, as well as in virtual training and learning environments. Each Read More..
Volkswagen is trialling virtual test-drive simulations with a view to shortening development and validation times for driver assistance systems. These are to ‘teach’ the cars, potentially cutting the costs of physical testing as well as accelerating the learning speed of the systems themselves, since the simulations can run continuously. Fewer test rigs and less hardware Read More..
HANOVER — Here needs help from millions of cars to keep its digital maps updated, a senior company executive said Tuesday. Dietmar Rabel, director of product management for global automated driving cloud products, told the carIT Congress here that, as cars become increasingly automated, traditional map data gathering through the use of company vehicles is Read More..
BMW is investing around €100 million in a new driving simulation facility at its FIZ Research and Innovation Centre, Munich. It describes this as to be the world’s most advanced of its kind, and says it will enable virtual testing of advanced assistance systems and display and control concepts for autonomous driving. The Driving Simulation Read More..
Training programs at Audi increasingly focus on electric-vehicle technology and digitalization, marking a shift away from traditional automotive skills toward new areas. In in-house programs at its German plants in Neckarsulm and Ingolstadt, the German premium car maker is adapting its training to make sure employees will have the requisite skills to deal with rapid Read More..
In a newly formed research lab,artificial intelligence is training neural networks. The researchers see major benefits in the development of electric powertrains. Powertrain developers see challenging times ahead. Even today, they are not just designing a gasoline or diesel engine to deliver the best possible performance and efficiency. They are also giving classic internal combustion Read More..
Audi CIO Frank Loydl has been on the job since February of this year. One of the first decisions he made was to launch an IT transformation project called NEXT:IT. It centers around a reorientation of the IT organization at Volkswagen Group’s premium brand. With a restart planned for January 1, the pace is high. Read More..
