We will be demonstrating the latest LED panel visual systems for driver-in-the-loop (DIL) simulators at the 20th annual Driving Simulator Conference (DSC 2021 Europe VR), September 14-17, at the Technical University of Munich.
This year’s event offers limited tours of BMW Group’s new FIZ Driving Simulator Centre, located nearby in Munich, where nine Cruden DIL simulators are being installed, five of which feature LED panel displays for the first time in a driving simulator application.
On booth 16, Cruden experts will demonstrate direct view LED wall solutions from two different suppliers using latest Cruden Panthera Unity render engine and high definition content. Cruden’s Product Manager, Bastiaan Graafland, will also present the technology at an industrial pitch session at the conference on Wednesday September 15th at 12:10.
Dennis Marcus, Commercial Manager at Cruden, says: “We cannot wait to reconnect with the industry at DSC 2021 Europe VR and show our LED wall visual technology, both on our booth and at BMW. We are now deploying LED systems our driving simulators and expect this to become a reference for uncompromised visuals for DIL testing.”

LED panel technology has become increasingly attractive for driving simulators thanks to developments such as improved pixel pitch, which has decreased from 2.5mm to as little as 0.9mm. The use of Direct View LED technology provides unparalleled brightness, contrast, and colour uniformity and it eliminates image blending tasks associated with projectors.

“Cruden is also proud to be part of the multi-simulator approach that DSC 2021 Europe VR guests will be able to see taken by BMW Group at its FIZ Driving Simulator Centre. The specification of a variety of simulators allows a diverse range of automotive systems to be tested and represents a very contemporary approach to DIL simulator testing at vehicle manufacturer level,” concludes Marcus.
At DSC 2021 Europe VR, Cruden will also present one of its latest technical papers, titled ‘Analysis of a trial-by-trial adaptive lane change assistance system on a motion-based simulator’, at 2:25pm, on Tuesday 14 September. The presentation will be led by Nico Van Leeuwen from Cruden, who wrote the paper in co-authorship with Barys Shyrokau and David Abbink from The Technical University of Delft.
