    Mobile Robotics Simulation

    Remarkable strides are being made in robotic autonomy, but challenges surrounding mobility, power systems and machine learning remain to be addressed.
Virtual Prototyping

Boost development efforts with virtual robotics

Simulation of mobile and task-based robotics systems allow engineers to develop control algorithms that perform nearly identically to the real hardware. This translates into improved development productivity and product quality.

Vortex Studio is a real-time virtual test platform that provides the tools needed to create high-fidelity mobile robotics simulations grasping, access, and other task-based robotic applications.

Virtual Prototyping

Provide the performance only offered through real-time simulation and allow engineers to connect to code running on control hardware.

  • Build real-time systems simulations combining integrated multibody dynamics, mechanism modeling, and advanced 3D graphics.
  • Connect to software-in-the-loop such as controls simulations from 1D, model-based design tools or hydraulic simulation models
  • Operate your virtual prototypes in ultra-realistic situations to investigate robotic productivity and interactions

Operations Planning

Test equipment performance from routine to unexpected scenarios, and from the ocean depths to the worksite to the surface of planets.

  • Perform virtual operations to support tendering proofs-of-concept and de-risking of projects
  • Improve robotic workability by simulating challenging environments with accurate terrain and hydrodynamic models
  • Create a digital-twin of robotic operations and prove work-plans long before the equipment is deployed


Accelerate human-factors engineering and operator feedback with immersive simulators, advanced 3D graphics and HIL simulations.

  • Bring operators into the design cycle and have experienced users provide valuable feedback on virtual prototypes.
  • Experiment with and train control systems—such as ROS—in a fully customizable, dynamic testing environment.
  • Embed Vortex Studio in other software suites through robust libraries and a C++ API.

Real-time Simulation for Mobile Robotics

Vortex Studio provides the framework and engine to accurately simulate mechanical dynamics and contact, and combine that with realistic virtual scenarios, sensors and control algorithms.

It provides engineers with the desktop tools to create mobility and access studies, modelling power consumption, task-based system performance and testing manipulator capabilities. It is the ideal tool for building real-time virtual robots operating in realistic scenarios in the ocean, in the home, on worksites or in space.
