Simulator Engineering

Our Simulator Engineering module took place on the 18th September 2021. Contact elinor.morris@the-mia.com to register your interest for next year.

Drivers spend more time in the simulator than racing. As track time is limited and simulator technologies are continuing to develop, driver-in-the-loop simulators are now a vital tool used to improve driver and car performance.

Our tutors explained the latest developments in simulator technology including the engineering behind vehicle modelling, track modelling and hardware in the loop. You will also be taught how to run a simulator session to get the most valuable feedback from the driver to optimise car set-up.

Featured tutors from the following companies and teams
