Who are the corporate members of the Driving Simulation Association ?

Cruden - DSA Donating Member

Cruden is the world’s leading designer, manufacturer and integrator of professional open architecture driving simulators for the automotive, motorsport and marine industries. We supply flexible, durable, high performing real-time simulators and their modular components: hardware, software, vehicle models, content and screens and projectors.

Our driver-in-the-loop (DIL) simulators and Panthera Software Suite are designed to slot into customers’ existing tool chains so their engineers can be up and running quickly with a future-proof system that does not tie them to any one supplier. Having recognized the potential of engineering simulators to save time and money through DIL testing since the 1990s, we have installed over 100 driving simulators globally and gained a firm reputation as a trustworthy simulator expert.

OKTAL - DSA Donating Member

Established in 1989, OKTAL joined the SOGECLAIR group in 2000 to form its simulation division.

Based on the sustainability of its own software workshops, the expertise of its employees and a R & D investment equivalent to 12% of its turnover, OKTAL positions itself as a key player in the aeronautics, automotive and railway markets.

OKTAL is today a supplier of turnkey solutions for the biggest national and international ordering persons, among which AIRBUS, ENAC, RENAULT, PSA, DGA, VALEO, SNCF, KEOLIS, RATP, ALSTOM, and BOMBARDIER.

The company generates more than 50% of its activities abroad from its headquarters in Toulouse and its agency in Paris.

OPTIS - DSA Donating Member

OPTIS, the virtual prototyping company, brings life and emotion to all industrial projects.  Its world-leading solutions pave the way for a revolutionary design process:  towards zero physical prototypes.  Since 1989, OPTIS offers its expertise in light and human vision simulation couples with famous CAD/CAM software and dedicated virtual immersive solutions.  This synergy creates true-to-life virtual mockups which are used as real decision-making tools.  Today, more than 2500 clients in over 50 countries already trus OPTIS and innovate day after day with our solutions to ensure the look and safety of their designs, reduce their ecological footprint and bring their future products to the market faster.

AB Dynamics

AB Dynamics, based in the UK and established in 1982, are a leading designer, manufacturer and supplier of advanced test and measurement systems to the global motor industry, for vehicle research and development and for production quality control. With specific expertise in vehicle dynamics and suspension established products include the SPMM 5000 Kinematics and Compliance test machine and a comprehensive range of driving robots and ADAS test systems.

This year AB Dynamics have entered the vehicle driving simulator market with the development of the Advanced Vehicle Dynamics Simulator, or aVDS. This is a compact simulator with class leading excursion, response and low latency.

The aVDS incorporates the Williams Advanced Engineering motion platform and delivers high definition content from rFpro via a high specification audio and vision system. By carefully synchronising the rFpro content with the high response motion platform, the aVDS provides the driver with very low latency vestibular, audio and visual motion cueing, which allows full immersion in the test environment and which provides a totally realistic driving experience.
