Gavin joined Dyisma after learning about DMG technology and recognising its potential for growth in the automotive and motorsport industries. “The driving simulation industry was fairly settled on 30 or 40Hz as the upper limit of vehicle dynamics requirements, but there are many scenarios and aspects of vehicle engineering which need a higher frequency in order to deliver meaningful motion to the driver.”
He has enjoyed 25 years in the automotive sector, starting in engine components before moving through engine management systems, advanced materials and latterly automotive simulators. The first half of his career was spent in engineering and manufacturing roles, before switching to commercial responsibilities in business development and sales. “I’ve always enjoyed my work – I love engineering and technology, I also enjoy the human interaction, but what I like best is being part of a team that creates something new. It is a very exciting time for driving simulators because we are not just delivering our customers an incremental benefit, but rather we are empowering them to create new ways of developing vehicles.
Gavin has manufactured pistons in four different continents including spending several years in China, and will lead the drive to supply Dynisma’s simulators around the globe.
