“TruckSim was used to study offset loads and provide guidelines to body builders, resulting in trucks with high customer satisfaction. It also helped to define new test procedures feeding into braking and handling development for future products.”

Customer challenge
Without high-quality vehicle dynamics, autonomous vehicle (AV) simulations can be inaccurate, unreliable, and unrepresentative of the real world.
Developing accurate models takes time
Simulations must reflect the real world
Undetected problems can cause significant delays
