Virtual Prototyping

Build on an Integrated Simulation Platform

Dynamics simulation

  • Model individual components, including powertrain, ground interaction, steering, suspension and brakes, for more accurate simulated vehicles.
  • Deploy heavy equipment in accurate environments with real-time simulation of deformable terrain.
  • Simulate cable systems in both tension or slack for lifting systems, towing operations, offshore SURF systems, and robotic tethers, all  interacting with mechanical systems and the virtual environment.
  • Integrate buoyancy, drag and motion models with configurable ocean state to simulate hydrodynamic interaction with hulls,and submersibles.

Advanced graphics

  • Create mechanisms, objects and terrain from existing CAD and 3D art models

  • High-quality shader-based GPU-accelerated rendering, on desktop systems, head mounted displays or synchronized multi-channel systems.

  • Create realistic scenes with 3D visual effects—including shadows, skydome, weather, trees, ocean—to enhance the user experience.

  • Integrate built-in visual sensors needed to simulate control with cameras, ray-cast and depth sensors or extend capabilities with tools to model LiDAR or sonar.

Desktop engineering

  • Build and validate virtual machines and scenarios from 3D CAD/artwork with easy to use drag-and-drop functionality within the Vortex Studio Editor.

  • Prepare your simulation—whether a desktop environment or a custom multi-channel simulator—for visualization, motion and sound from the same creation application.

  • Distribute simulation and visualization with a reusable workflow, replacing code-based processes with the Vortex Studio Player’s intuitive point-and-click tools.

  • Work within this central console to debug and optimize simulations, manage scenes and participants, and play back sessions.

Adaptable architecture

  • Leverage a robust software stack including core Vortex Studio applications, distributed computing framework, cross-platform libraries, and embedded Python.

  • Easily extend Vortex Studio through a simple plugin architecture and C++ API to integrate software and hardware in-the-loop.

  • Embed Vortex Studio into your own application through fully documented cross-platform libraries with C++ API.
