ESI launches software for virtual seat prototyping


ESI Group has launched Virtual Seat Solution 2016, a software solution designed to enable OEMs and seat suppliers to design, test, improve and pre-certify seat prototypes, fully and virtually, without the need for physical prototypes. Already established in the automotive sector, ESI says Virtual Seat Solution 2016 now provides a complete end-to-end virtual prototyping solution dedicated to the aeronautical sector, from seat modeling to virtual performance testing, with virtual human models, all the way to virtual certification.

Virtual Seat Solution 2016 is designed to enable seat manufacturers to virtually assess the performance and comfort of their seats with respect to criteria including living space, static and thermal comfort, and the capacity of the seat to absorb inflight vibrations.

“Virtual prototyping is a proven industrial approach to pre-certify the manufacturing process and performance of an innovative product, such as our Titanium seat,” said Vincent Tejedor, CTO of Expliseat. “Our experience working with ESI’s Virtual Seat Solution confirms the efficiency of this solution in speeding up innovation. Virtual Seat Solution has helped us reduce drastically the development time usually required to design an innovative product, and has allowed us to increase the business value of our company in record time.”
