All our driving simulators use our direct drive force feedback steering system, a purposely designed, multi-turn actuator for high-speed steering wheel applications.
These are purposely designed actuators for high-fidelity steering wheel applications, featuring double loop control, which optimally recreates the torque demanded by the vehicle model. At a bandwidth exceeding 50 Hz, the maximum peak torque is 30 Nm, the nominal maximum torque is 20 Nm and the maximum velocity is 4500 deg/s.
When motion is required, most customers use our standard industrial 6-DOF motion bases with either 400 or 640 mm actuator stroke, as used in professional automotive, motorsport and military simulator applications around the world.
We offer a range of simulator platforms and seating and interface frames to allow the incorporation of mock-ups, tub/chassis or partial/complete vehicles. An Interchangeable Driver Cell (IDC) option allows for a 20 minute changeover of different mock-ups. See page 4 of our automotive brochure and motorsport brochure for more details.
Cruden makes simulator systems with integrated TFT displays as well as on- and off-board projection systems using various technologies available.
We have many years’ experience integrating original vehicle components such as shifting devices, pedal boxes, steering wheels or complete dashboards. Add-ons include active brake pedals, seat belt loaders and vibration devices.
