Goodyear and VI-grade say a DiM250 Dynamic Driving Simulator will be installed at the tyre manufacturer’s Innovation Centre in Colmar-Berg, Luxembourg.

In addition to strengthening Goodyear’s product development at the European site, the new driving simulator also enhances technical collaboration with its headquarters in Akron, Ohio, where another DiM250 was recently put into operation.

In addition, both of Goodyear’s innovation centres employ VI-grade Compact Simulators to complement virtual tyre development processes.

Driving simulators allow tyre models to be developed, tested and validated early in the development cycle, identifying the best performing products before building a first prototype.

“This level of simulation capability is a clear technology leadership advantage,” said Goodyear SVP and CTO, Chris Helsel.

“We are always looking to improve the development process and maintain our status as the preferred supplier for our customers.”
