Cruden designs the complete driving simulator architecture and integrates all the mechanical, electrical, electronic and sometimes hydraulic components, as well as the simulator software packages, that make up what is a complex mechatronics system.

Cruden racing and driving simulators’ full ‘round-trip’ perceived visual latency is industry leading at just below 10 ms. The end-to-end latency from the driver generating an input to the driver receiving feedback on the control loading is only 7 ms. Audio latency is as low as 8 ms.
The bandwidth of Cruden’s motion bases exceeds 20 Hz in all 6-DOF. The bandwidth for heave and rotational degrees of freedom goes beyond 40 Hz, whilst maintaining a latency of less than 10 ms. The control loading bandwidth exceeds 50 Hz.
Panthera can render at resolutions up to WQXGA (2560 x 1600), keeping frame rates above 120 fps.
Soft or hard real-time
Cruden vehicle simulators run dynamic models and controllers on various hard- or soft real-time platforms.
