Simulation has increased tremendously in importance over the last two decades, and it plays a critical role in the development and testing of new vehicle technologies.

Through our work with distributed simulation, virtual reality, testing new motion drive algorithms, and modeling vehicle automation, we are pushing the boundaries of simulation science.

International scholars partner on research projects

Visiting scientists from around the world come to NADS to work on research projects for sometimes months at a time and collaborate with our experts. One such example was in fall 2019, with Felix Ellensohn from the Technical University of Munich, Germany.
