New Simulator for Scuderia Ferrari
This week, a brand new simulator has arrived and commissioned at Ferrari. In the coming weeks, the simulator will be calibrated and used from September. The simulator will support the design phase of the 2022 car after new sporting regulations announced.
The supplier says the new simulator is at the cutting edge in the field of vehicle dynamics simulation and reproduces in a 360° environment, with the lowest latency and the highest bandwidth motion cueing of any motion simulator available on the market. It is an entirely new concept, resulting in a collaboration between Scuderia Ferrari and Dynisma, a UK-based independent company headed up by former Ferrari engineer Ash Warne.
Gianmaria Fulgenzi, Scuderia Ferrari's Head of Supply Chain, commented: "Simulation and digital technology are going to play an ever more important role in the development of a Formula 1 car, and we believe we have made the best possible choice, focusing on creating a tool that will enable us to make a generational leap in this sector.
To produce it, we chose Dynisma, a young and dynamic company. It has taken two years to complete this project and now we are ready to start using it on the 674 project, which is the name given to the car that will be produced based on the new technical regulations that come into force in 2022."
Ash Warne, Dynisma CEO said: "My experience in Formula One informed me that motion simulators were just not realistic or responsive enough. We set up Dynisma to change that and with the mission to create the world's most immersive simulator and widen access to the best high fidelity, responsive motion generators that drivers and engineers could want.
We are proud that our first commission is for the world's most famous and respected motorsport team and it's proof that Dynisma has created world-leading technologies. We have broken convention and redefined the sector by looking at the problem in an entirely new way."
