As a partner in the automotive industry
fka offers innovative solutions and strategic consulting - driving innovations.
fka SV Inc. was founded in San Jose (USA), the heart of Silicon Valley, in 2015 as fka's US subsidiary to build a bridge between excellent German engineering and creative California experts. fka SV’s offices and company address is located at Prospect Silicon Valley (ProspectSV), a non-profit organization supporting emerging technology companies. fka SV uses the broad fka experience in automotive research and its network within the automotive industry and currently offers the following services:
The fka SimLab is a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) guidelines compliant driving simulator that was build up and is being operated by fka SV. With a real car as its central part and a 220 degree multi-screen surround view, the simulator creates an immersive virtual environment for the driver. The powerful software “Virtual Test Drive” not only allows realization of almost every conceivable traffic situation, but also makes it possible to integrate customer technology into the control loop. This enables fkaSV to design, test and asses a wide range of vehicle systems in an early stage of development within the desired environments.
Since fka has access to a replica of the fka SimLab in Aachen, fka and fka SV can offer studies with subjects from different European countries and the US with different environments and different test person groups. In addition fka can offer combined studies in the driving simulator and on a test track due to access to the newly built test “Aldenhoven Testing Center” (ATC) close to Aachen.
The fka SimLab offers a multitude of services from driving simulator time, up to full experiments for start-ups, OEMs, automotive suppliers, as well as automotive interest companies.
