MECHANICAL SIMULATION RELEASES CARSIM 8.1



by James Hilton

Mechanical Simulation Corporation is proud to announce the August release of CarSim 8.1 vehicle dynamics software, which features improvements for both new and existing users.

Some of the new features included or available with this release are Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT), Engine Mounts, AVL Cruise Interface, Driver Model Improvements, Configurable Table Functions and a new Handling Course.

The CarSim 8.1 release also marks the introduction of VehicleSim Visualizer (VsV). VsV makes use of modern graphical processing units (GPU) and shape file formats. It provides advanced lighting (true shadows, multiple light sources, reflected headlights), highly efficient rendering, rear-view mirrors and advanced techniques such as those used in video game technology.

"The improvements that are included in CarSim 8.1 have raised the bar for simulation tools," said Michael Sayers, chief technology officer at Mechanical Simulation. "We are continuously striving to provide a better product for engineers to work with. The new features and the incorporation of the VehicleSim Visualizer were a direct result of customer feedback. We are trying to give our customers the best software possible."
