Virtual Prototype of Cockpit HMI

Prepare and appraise CAD-based virtual prototypes of a cockpit HMI in a real-time, immersive virtual reality environment.


Test and Validate a Full Cockpit HMI Design

Create Safer Drives with Driver in the Loop

Ansys VRXPERIENCE HMI lets you test and validate a full cockpit HMI design—including virtual displays and actuators—through visual simulation, eye and finger tracking and haptic feedback. With a full HMI evaluation for next-generation vehicles using virtual reality, this tool reduces the time and cost of design by decreasing the number of expensive physical prototypes needed to validate products.

Making the Cockpit of the Future a Reality via Optimized HMIs

The simulation capabilities of Ansys VRXPERIENCE generate the next step in cockpit efficiency.

Ansys offers a unique way to model real-life human interactions with displays and controls in a safe virtual environment. Ansys VRXPERIENCE is an innovative solution that brings the human element together with a 3D virtual model of the cockpit. By immersing themselves in the virtual reality of the cockpit they’ve designed, engineers can reach for controls, view displays and check the visibility of the entire cockpit environment under a wide range of lighting conditions.

By leveraging simulation opportunities such as Ansys SCADE and Ansys VRXPERIENCE HMI to engineer new marvels, such as the cockpit of the future, aerospace engineering teams can enjoy the best of two worlds: extreme innovation coupled with extreme accuracy, speed and product confidence.

VRXPERIENCE HMI provides this comprehensive evaluation of all the human-machine interfaces in the next-generation cockpit, while SCADE generates the software that makes it all a reality..
