F50 drives VI-grade to optimal efficiency
Posted on Monday, November 9, 2015

VI-grade, a leading provider of simulation software and services, has chosen Barco’s F50 projector to empower the VI-DriveSim driving simulator. Every simulator will be equipped with three projectors to recreate a highly realistic environment. This gives test drivers the chance to experience exactly how the car behaves, before it’s even built.


Driving innovation
Without even taking into account `dieselgate’, the automotive industry is facing a number of challenges today: customer demands are higher than ever, and time-to-market is turning into a ‘race-to-market’. Meanwhile, budgets remain stringently tight…
To streamline the development process and cut testing expenses, manufacturers are increasingly turning to driving simulators. This allows them to gather feedback earlier in the design process, resulting in better and more innovative cars.

Steering towards success
One of the most advanced simulators is VI-DriveSim by VI-grade, which introduces various high-end features in a compact and cost-effective design. The unit comes in two different configurations: static and dynamic. The first lets users drive a virtual vehicle model from a fixed cockpit, while vehicle behavior is visualized on a wide screen. The latter adds motion feedback by means of a moving platform.

In both cases, the visual environment is entirely powered by Barco’s F50 WUXGA projectors. This unique, single-chip DLP® projector combines exceptional resolution with active 3D stereo and high frame rates. “The F50 delivers razor-sharp images with vivid colors and contrasts”, explains Diego Minen, Technical Director at VI-grade. “To top it all off, it’s extremely reliable and ensures a low total cost of ownership. We couldn’t think of a better solution for our flagship driving simulator!”
