Using products and technology we have developed and supplied to F1 teams, our simulator accurately reproduces a realistic driving experience suitable for the very highest levels of motorsport.
The main training simulator is constructed around a composite single seater chassis formed from a real F1 mould. This positions the driver in the exact seating position as in a real formula car. In addition, real motorsport controls, including the steering wheel and pedals, are adapted to communicate with the simulation software for a true to life experience. The pedals can also be moved back and forth via electronic actuators with the push of a button to quickly adjust for taller or shorter drivers.
The chassis is situated on our in-house designed motion platform with four layers of motion technology.
The highly accurate and almost instantaneous system supplies an incredibly realistic driving sensation.
Inside the cockpit is the Cranfield ‘g-seat’ which utilises technology from our aerospace military solutions. The g-seat consists of multiple airbags that expand and contract to provide localised sustained pressure which simulates the g-forces felt when cornering.
The whole seat also has its own independent motion system which moves inside the car to simulate braking and acceleration.
The visuals can be provided either by our triple projection wrap around screen or VR headset.
