Pirelli: the new simulator

BETTER AND MORE QUICKLY – The Pirelli has inaugurated at its plant in milan Bicocca, a new simulator static which will reduce significantly the time of development of the tyres. In more detail, the simulator is in the research and development centre in milan, and will also help to strengthen the cooperation with the car manufacturers that will have a huge amount of data in real-time. According to what says Pirelli, with this technology is reduced by about 30% the average time for the development of new tyres for road use and for competitions, thanks to the use of real virtual prototypes. Always compared to the previous design systems, this simulator you will be able to install the various models of the car, and play any driving condition, facilitating therefore the same manufacturers that may therefore produce new models perfectly compatible with the products of the Pirelli.

SOURCES SPORITIVE – simulation in the field of tires has origins in “sport”, as is used for 10 years to the design and test of the tyres in Formula 1, in addition to other categories. The simulator of the Pirelli is produced by a company specialising VI-grade and is composed of one cylindrical shield with an extent of 210°, and a diameter of 7.5 m to visually reproduce the various circuits and various driving conditions. The tester, sitting on a real seat with a steering wheel and pedals, and is, therefore, “immersed” in a virtual reality that replicates any change or unexpected that may occur to the guide. It must be said, finally, that the simulation in the field of the design of the tire, the origins of which are “sports”, as is used for 10 years to the design and test of the tyres in Formula 1, in addition to other categories.
