VehicleSim Dynamics Plugin

The plugin feeds terrain data, including surface friction, from Unreal environment into the VehicleSim math model. It will also provide the math model data to the simulation using code or blueprints. You can modify your vehicle in CarSim or TruckSim and hot reload the results in your environment. Standard output files are generated, so you can view all of the selected variable outputs in the CarSim or TruckSim plotter after a run.

Unreal Engine

The Unreal Engine is a separate download from the Epic Unreal Marketplace. Note that an Epic Games login is required to download the engine.
