Web Seminar Tomorrow: CarSim, TruckSim, and BikeSim 2017: Mcity

Mechanical Simulation is continuing our series of web seminars designed to discuss focused solutions to a variety of vehicle dynamics simulation challenges. These online seminars are the perfect opportunity to learn more about our software from the convenience of your own location. You can watch as our staff demonstrate various features of the software and respond to your questions.

Please join us tomorrow, Wednesday, May 24 at 10:00 am EDT for our CarSim, TruckSim, and BikeSim 2017: Mcity web seminar.

The University of Michigan’s 30+ acre proving ground facility for connected and automated vehicles is now available as an example in the 2017 versions of CarSim, TruckSim, and BikeSim. During the WebEx, we will review some key features of this unique environment and demonstrate its use with our ADAS Range and Detection Sensors.

In support of the Mcity road surface environment, we introduced new VS Commands that support the efficient loading of large amounts of data which is then directed into table functions, such as those used to define a road surface.

These are handy when data for a table is obtained from outputs generated from another simulation, or when very large datasets are used that might exist in compact binary form, rather than text form.


You can view the full list of upcoming web seminars on our website.

Please visit our WebEx page to sign up.

We look forward to you joining us!
