Virtual Prototyping

Build Immersive Human-in-the-loop simulators

Testing how your equipment works with the operator when final field-prototypes are available is too late and you risk project failure. Drivers must be at the heart of your engineering process.

Vortex Studio bridges machine design, high-fidelity virtual environments and hardware, software, and humans—for enhanced human-in-the-loop (HIL) testing. HIL systems allow you to tie real-time, interactive immersive environments to a test rig and verify machine ergonomics and the human connection with in-cab ADAS. All together, well tested and thought out controls mean a faster time to market, and a natural fit for customers.
