Our product has revolutionized auto show displays and transformed our clients’ products into an interactive learning experience. Below are some examples of our completed projects for some of the biggest brands in the automotive industry as well as for Sigma’s own R&D purposes.
Dune Buggy Full Motion Simulator
The Dune Buggy is a research and design demonstration by Sigma to test 11″ of travel and suspension articulation of a double wishbone off road simulator. The Dune buggy weights just over 1600 lbs and responds quickly to any changes in motion, surface texture, impacts and engine vibration. The buggy is also completely functional and may be converted back to a buggy by just swapping the steering and the motion struts back to their original parts. The buggy was first previewed at the CES 2016 trade show in Las Vegas, Nevada with great success.
Dodge Viper SRT Manual Shifting Experience Simulator
Dodge Viper is one off our first full motion vehicle simulator with an actual 6 speed manual transmission. The low vehicle weight in addition to the removal of the V10 engine, transmission, fuel tank and differential made the overall bodyweight of the vehicle just above 2000 lbs. All other systems have been retained in the car to maintain an authentic look and feel to the brand. Secondly, since the vehicle lacks hazardous fluids it is also classified as non-volatile for air transport. The extremely light and rigid chassis really allows for the heave, pitch, roll, vibration and impact to be translated to the driver or passenger as seen in the video below. The vehicle was first featured at the Chrysler Dealer Auto Show in Las Vegas 2015.
Dodge Challenger and Charger Simulators
The Dodge Challenger and Charger come in a variety of model options but share the same underlying chassis and suspension designs. They have a very rigid frame design and hence are an excellent base for a motion simulator. More so, vehicles like the Dodge Hellcat are fast, responsive, and allow thousands of show goers to experience and drive a Hellcat first hand in a simulated but safe environment. The Challenger and Charger are also the longest running simulators with thousands of hours and virtual miles collected. In the past two years, the two cars thrilled thousands of participants in more than 80 shows. Most notably at the State Fair of Texas, the red Dodge Charger below ran 30-days straight with no issues completing over 19,500 virtual miles with over 12,000 drivers and passengers recorded.
Fiat 500 Abarth Simulator
This 2013 Abarth is a light, turbo powered, 6 speed manual performance model for the Fiat 500. The Abarth utilizes a front McPherson strut and a rear Torsion beam suspension design typically found in small cars. The suspension design actually proved to be a challenge for our team. The small trunk and hatch space of the Abarth made it more difficult for our team to mount our hydraulics out of view and to accurately simulate the actual travel, speed, rate and effective angle. The Abarth was only shown at the 2014 SEMA show in Las Vegas, Nevada.
RAM 1500 Truck Simulator
The RAM 1500 Laramie Longhorn with a Crew Cab and 6′-4″ box is the biggest and heaviest Full Motion Simulator Sigma Intégrale has ever built. The vehicle weighs over 6,000 lbs and has a unique rear axle coil spring suspension design. Sigma was able to provide accurate motion to the RAM in a virtual driving experience across the United States starting in Los Angeles and ending in New York. The RAM is also unique in that it lowers two inches, just like the real truck, to allow drivers and passengers to easily enter and exit the truck before the simulation begins.
Visteon Autonomous Simulator
Sigma Intégrale was a contributor to Visteon’s autonomous driving simulator, which was made its first debut at the 2014 CES show in Las Vegas, Nevada. This simulator showcases Visteon’s latest technology as well as provides a full immersion experiencing by a wrap-around 3-projector system, with an exciting motion system that provides 3″ of lift for the driver and passenger. Acceleration, braking, turn in and road textures were all communicated via the custom built mobile motion platform.
National Defense Training Simulator
Sigma Intégrale working together with the department of National Defense has supplied full motion chassis for light armoured vehicle and flight simulation testing. This chassis will be a standalone station for training purposes, and its design will be based on our polycarbonate, uni-body chassis. Custom designed triple display mounts allow for perfect fitment around the chassis with a perfect amount of adjustability and mounting for additional equipment up and off the ground for better cable management and overall appearance.
Chevrolet C6 Vehicle Simulator
In order to showcase Sigma Intégrale’s latest technology, we created the world’s most exciting and high-performance simulator using the latest hardware and software. With high end triple 4k computer graphics and an incredibly responsive motion and steering systems, this truly is the world’s best car simulator. Sigma Intégrale has début this simulator at the 2015 Shanghai International Auto Show with great success. Participants got the experience the pure V8 power of the Corvette around the Nurburgring, in Germany.
