7 Advantages of RAMSIS NextGen in Vehicle Development

RAMSIS NextGen is an innovative software that helps engineers simulate and analyze how users interact with a vehicle’s interior, optimize comfort and safety features, and conduct quick evaluations to refine designs.

It also allows for posture analysis and assessments of accessibility and inclusivity, creating more natural and comfortable driving experiences for all users. In this blog, we’ll explore the seven benefits of using RAMSIS NextGen in vehicle development.

RAMSIS NextGen Advantages

When referring to a vehicle throughout the benefits below, this could be a Car, a Truck, a Plane, a Helicopter or even a Tractor. The benefits can be achieved for each one of them.

1. Human-Centric Design

Engineers can simulate and analyse how users interact with the interior of the vehicle with RAMSIS NextGen. Occupant interaction is a crucial aspect of the design of any vehicle, especially with safety and ergonomics being so important. This helps to ensure that during an accident any occupants are protected, it also ensures that drivers can utilise the controls effectively.

2. Virtual Prototyping

The vehicle design is completed in CAD, and by using RAMSIS NextGen to conduct testing in the virtual space engineering teams can test multiple scenarios without the need for creating costly prototypes, saving time and money throughout the development cycle.

3. Occupant Comfort and Experience

To improve user satisfaction, the optimisation of comfort and the overall experience of the vehicle interior plays a key part, by simulating, evaluating and then enhancing the interior design with RAMSIS NextGen this can achieved. Covering the seat position, ease of use and visibility all play in to improve the overall experience and satisfaction of the users.

4. Iterative Design Improvement

RAMSIS NextGen provides engineers with the ability to conduct quick evaluations allowing for design refinements. Utilising an iterative process such as this results in continuous improvements in ergonomics and vehicle safety.

5. Optimisation of Restraint Systems

With safety being a key area of vehicle development the restraints systems, such as seat belts and airbags, are imperative to the occupant’s safety. By utilising RAMSIS NextGen to evaluate and optimise the design and location of these crucial features, enhancements can be made which result in improved safety levels.

6. Posture Analysis

RAMSIS NextGen allows for in-depth posture analysis to be conducted against a multitude of driving scenarios and positions. This provides crucial data to encourage the seat and interiors to be designed in a way that encourages a more natural and comfortable driving posture, which in turn can help to reduce fatigue and overall wellbeing.

7. Accessibility and Inclusivity

With a variety of physical capabilities within the population and target market, RAMSIS NextGen can be used to conduct assessments on the accessibility of the vehicle, this allows for the creation of my inclusive vehicle designs.
