Who are we and what do we do?

The Global Center for Automotive Performance Simulation (GCAPS) provides accurate and affordable models to support virtual development for the transportation industry. Our simulation group, which has significant experience ranging from graphic design to tire mechanics, is an important aspect of our successful model creation. These models—including tire models, vehicle models, and environments—are created from both customer data sources and physical testing performed in our own advanced testing facilities, which feature the world’s most capable indoor flat trac machine. Our physical testing expertise has led to research and new modeling methods for improved products delivered to our customers, including leading global vehicle manufacturers, tire manufacturers, and championship motorsports teams. These clients have used our model and testing services to elevate their performance in vehicle handling, autonomous vehicle technology, and many other aspects of transportation simulation. Collectively, our vast experience in controls development, vehicle simulation, model creation, and physical data interpretation will help any company in the transportation industry excel.

We are proud to be an affiliated company to Virginia Tech and the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute.
