Vehicle Dynamics

Maximizing performance early in development.

Our expertise is recognized by OEMs and motorsport organizations worldwide.

To achieve optimal ride and handling targets, our closed-loop vehicle dynamics optimization process integrates the following:

Analytical Simulation
Vehicle dynamics modelling, simulation and analysis in a very accurate virtual world.

We easily took out over two weeks of development and tuning time using Multimatic’s tools.
