Benefits of virtual tire evaluations using DIL

There are some significant cost, timing and sustainability aspects in regard to using virtual driving or driver-in-the-loop simulators to evaluate tires. The most notable change is the lack of physical tires that are created. There are also many benefits to the research and development side of tire engineering. This presentation will explore what DIL is and what it can mean, and the cost/timing/R&D benefits for tires. Case study examples on how tire companies are using simulators with be discussed.
