Italian Danisi Engineering is using automotive simulation technology from VI-grade to provide its clients with dynamic vehicle development services.
VI-grade’s technical partner Danisi Engineering, an Italian engineering services company in the field of chassis systems providing concepts, engineering, prototyping and low volume production, has officially opened its “Advanced Vehicle Dynamics Centre” in the premises of Nichelino (Italy), located in the outskirts of Turin and therefore logistically close to the main Italian and European automotive OEMs and Tier1 suppliers.
The Advanced Vehicle Dynamics Centre (AVD) features a static and a dynamic driving simulator based on technology provided by VI-grade and its partners: the brand new centre located at Danisi headquarters features VI-DriveSim Static, the driving simulation system based on the VI-CarRealTime and VI-GraphSim software technologies, as well as DiM – Driver-in-Motion, the dynamic driving simulator developed by VI-grade and engineered and manufactured by Saginomiya, based on an innovative 9-DOF mechanical design. Both simulators adopt a cockpit derived from a Maserati Ghibli.
“Investing in these technologies and processes is key. We are sure that – in the medium term – the market demand for these development and validation activities on ADAS systems and Self Driving systems will remarkably increase” said Giacomo Danisi, owner and CEO, Danisi Engineering. “Having always focused on offering our clients outstanding engineering skills, we deemed it strategic to have these tools available and invest in the relevant know-how. Today we are the only independent engineering company in the world to boast such an advanced development centre. I would like to thank our partner VI-grade, thanks to whom we can count on cutting-edge software, developed around our specific needs.”
“We are extremely satisfied to report a strengthened technical partnership with Danisi Engineering”, said Guido Bairati, International Sales Director, VI-grade. “We are looking forward to a fruitful collaboration with Danisi Engineering in the following segments: Conceptual Design, Vehicle Dynamics, Ride & Comfort, Durability, Control Systems and Physical Prototyping.”
