Simulator Engineering

Simulator Engineering

Simulators are one of the most important weapons in a Race Engineers arsenal. They can be used as a driver training and engineering tool; helping Race Engineers extract the maximum performance out of the driver and car.

In this module taking place on 18 September you will learn 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.

Module Programme*:

Session 1 – How to run a simulator session

You’ll learn from a real Race Engineer the strategies they use to maximise the driver’s time in the simulator. Whether it’s a driver development programme, correlation study or optimising set-up, you’ll get the best advice on how to run a simulator session effectively.

Session 2 – Vehicle Modelling

Discover the techniques behind developing accurate vehicle models that can be integrated into simulators. You’ll find out the different processes involved as well as how to optimise these models to run on real time hardware systems efficiently and reliably.

Session 3 – Track Modelling

Find out the tactics used to simulate reality. You’ll learn how simulator software models real world inputs to create realistic visual and audio cues for the driver.

Session 4 – Hardware in the loop

Learn how race teams in Formula E and other categories are now using hardware in the loop (HIL) to test real components within the simulator. This allows them to test control strategies, energy management strategies and software on the ECU from the real car. 


Q&A sessions

You will also get the unique opportunity to ask our expert tutors your questions during three live Q&A sessions.

Price & Booking Process

The cost for this industry recognised learning opportunity is just £395. The price includes exclusive technical material, the opportunity to put forward questions to the tutors and a Certificate of Attendance for each participant.

There is a special loyalty offer available for MIA members and also for delegates who have attended a previous online module or the School of Race Engineering – please contact sharon.ford@the-mia.com to process this. 

When and Where

This online module will take place on Saturday 18 September, from 11:00 - 18:00 (BST) with scheduled comfort breaks, via the Zoom platform.
