BMW is investing around €100 million in a new driving simulation facility at its FIZ Research and Innovation Centre, Munich. It describes this as to be the world’s most advanced of its kind, and says it will enable virtual testing of advanced assistance systems and display and control concepts for autonomous driving.

The Driving Simulation Centre is being constructed in a central part of the FIZ site and will cover 11,400 square meters, with 14 simulators and usability labs. It will employ 157 people from its opening in 2020.

Simulators are to include one capable of simultaneously representing longitudinal, transverse and rotational movements of a vehicle, generating acceleration forces of up to 1.0g: this high-dynamic simulator will test new systems and functions for evasive manoeuvres, full braking and hard acceleration, for example. A second unit with a near-400 square meter motion area will offer high-fidelity simulations of scenarios such as braking and accelerating whilst cornering; driving around roundabouts; and a rapid series of multiple turn-off manoeuvres. Complex urban driving situations can now be realistically replicated.
