LONDON April 29 (People’s Daily Online)—— McLaren Applied Technologies (M.A.T.) and MTS Systems Corporation (MTS) have announced a technical agreement to bring simulators and associated technology to the global automotive market.

Under the terms of the agreement, M.A.T. and MTS will create and deliver a next generation Vehicle Dynamics Simulator (VDS), which uses a tightly integrated ‘driver-in-the-loop’ system for engineering the development of road cars. The technology allows engineers to virtually test a conceptual vehicle design in multiple environments and scenarios.

The technology can be experienced today at the McLaren Technology Centre.

The agreement between M.A.T. and MTS draws on both companies’ rich heritage in simulation technology. The Racing arm of McLaren pioneered the use of simulation technology in Formula 1, and has been utilising this approach to car design for over 15 years.

Vice president of M.A.T. Geoff McGrath said: “By combining McLaren’s vehicle modelling expertise and simulator technology with MTS’ experience in testing and simulation solutions, we hope to revolutionise mainstream car development on a global scale.

“McLaren has long been aware of the advantages of simulated vehicle design, including quicker speed to market, less reliance on the development of physical prototypes and reduced environmental impact. These benefits are increasingly pertinent to vehicle manufacturers as legal requirements grow, and customers’ tastes become ever more exacting. It has never been more complex or costly to bring a road car from initial design to the showroom.”
