Racecar road

VI-Road is the specialized software for three-dimensional road design from VI-grade. VI-Road enables to prepare accurate road data files for vehicle, motorcycle and aircraft simulations, using analytical descriptions as well as experimental measurements for a very realistic mapping of real-life road profiles and race tracks. VI-Road additionally supports a series of advanced capabilities, such as the possibility of modeling kerbs and of specifying variable friction coefficients and track disturbances. Thanks to an embedded solver, VI-Road enables to estimate the static limit speed profile for a given vehicle on a specified trajectory. VI-Road is compatible with other VI-grade products, such as VI-Driver, VI-Animator and VI-DriveSim.
