Vehicle Dynamics

Pratt & Miller’s modeling and simulation department develops solutions that optimize ride, handling, and mobility on a multitude of platforms. Utilizing the latest standards in simulation technology, including our in-house proprietary software tools, our team enables virtual testing to efficiently analyze and predict vehicle dynamics. By front-loading our projects with modeling and simulation, we have cut product development times by as much as 60%.
