Hancom MDS and DynaFusion will support Cruden’s growth in the automotive driving simulator market.
Cruden is expanding the global reach of its driver-in-the-loop (DIL) simulators with the addition of two new distributors. Hancom MDS and DynaFusion, which have exclusive rights to sell Cruden’s automotive range of simulators in South Korea and India, respectively, are both distributors of dSPACE hard real-time (HRT) systems commonly used by automotive engineers in hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) testing.
“Partnering with knowledgeable automotive specialists Hancom MDS and DynaFusion is an important step for Cruden as we look to serve new markets and customer types beyond our traditional European OEM base,” explains Dennis Marcus, commercial manager at Cruden.
“It is highly complementary that our selected partners have established networks of customers working on hardware-in-the-loop simulation who wish to add a driver-in-the-loop and who are looking for an integrated solution to align the processes and workflows of their DIL and HIL test departments. Both companies also have a wealth of experience in providing test systems for the development of embedded software that runs on various ECUs. The ability to integrate ECUs with driving simulators is increasingly essential for the contemporary demands of ADAS development, autonomous vehicle (AV) and vehicle dynamics testing,” says Dennis Marcus.
Cruden recently developed a solution that makes the integration of a driving simulator with a dSPACE-driven test rig more straightforward and less error-prone, by combining its open architecture Panthera simulator software with the dSPACE ASM simulation tool suite for vehicle models, traffic and sensor simulation. This time-saving package will be a powerful addition to dSPACE users internationally.
This announcement is made in advance of the Automotive Testing Expo Europe 2018 (Messe Stuttgart; June 5-7; stand 1168) at which representatives of Hancom MDS will be present to discuss opportunities with South Korean visitors. At the show, Cruden will highlight its three standard products for the automotive testing market, for HMI, ADAS, AV and vehicle dynamics applications, and exhibit a typical automotive simulator driver cockpit.
Adjacent to the Testing Expo, Jelle van Doornik, product manager ADAS at Cruden, will speak at the Autonomous Vehicle Symposium, on June 7th at 15.15. His presentation will cover the role of simulators in driver observation work and will show the benefits for subjective assessment of autonomous driving handover moments. He will reference Cruden’s work with Hyundai Mobis and the development of its Departed Driver Rescue and Exit Maneuver (DDREM) technology.
