With over 10 years dedicated to projects in telemetry, electronics, engineering, test-bench and dynamic simulation, the team at Simul Works have a rare combination of software development talent and experience within leading motor-sport teams and premium road-car manufacturers.
Solving everyday issues of cost, time and quality with inspired software solutions Simul Works evolves existing systems to reduce seat license costs, refine workflows and eliminate errors. From the very beginning of a project development cycle or seeking excellence from a legacy system, Simul Works delivers innovation that radically changes perceptions of what software can achieve in automotive engineering.
From test-bench through factory floor to trackside, Project SandRA was born from the need for a single secure, definitive source of moment-accurate data. Data is written and recorded once and available instantly to the team wherever they are; comments, updates and amendments are authenticated and attributable.
SandRA synchronises and integrates with leading industry software tools enabling combinations of data to reveal new insights and actionable information.

With no off-the-shelf software to configure and manage a newly built Dynamic Simulator, Kommander was designed as a console interface to integrate: simulator platform, car-model, audio, graphics, cueing and telemetry.
Kommander automates repetitive tasks and enables a low-level technician to quickly set-up a configuration, find and load a previous configuration or launch multiple runs simultaneously. Password protected Kommander ensures the integrity of existing data and file-content and provides rapid error reporting of systems and hardware with full backup and restore functions.
It's pluggable nature not only integrates existing infrastructure and bespoke tools, Kommander future-proofs the project by adding more sub-systems and allowing for software and hardware change or upgrade.
