On May 14-15, VI-grade will invite executive managers and experienced engineers at automotive and transportation companies, engineering firms, universities and research centers from all over the world to Hanau, Germany, for an international conference where Barco is a golden sponsor. VI-grade will be showcasing current solutions and development plans for real-time simulation, HIL, SIL, traffic simulation and vehicle energy efficiency – right down to tire modeling.

The conference will focus on how driving simulators can help accelerate product development, ultimately saving time and cost and improving product quality and safety. Special attention will go to trending disciplines such as Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and autonomous driving. It is significant that Barco visual displays are being used throughout the event, including an informal get-together at Honda Europe R&D center in Offenbach on May 13th, powered by Barco, to reveal the first fully installed DiM250 driving simulator live and in action.

Two Barco FL40s will be showcased in a compact, interactive VI-grade driving simulator showing dynamic vehicle scenarios, projecting on a dome shaped screen provided by project: syntropy and aligned using domeprojection.com ProjectionTools.

One Barco FL40 will be showcased in a compact VI-grade driving simulator that will be demonstrating Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) scenarios featuring eye-tracking technology from SmartEye and radar technology from Konrad.
