Mechanical Simulation Announces New Representation Agreement in India with Xitadel

ANN ARBOR, Mich., March 7, 2013 - Mechanical Simulation Corporation, developer of vehicle dynamics simulation tools CarSim, TruckSim and BikeSim, and the kinematics model SuspensionSim, announced today an agency agreement with Xitadel CAE Technologies India Private Limited. Xitadel, based in Jayanagar Bangalore Kamataka, India, will represent the full range of Mechanical Simulation Corporation products in India.

CarSim, TruckSim and BikeSim simulate the performance of cars, trucks, motorcycles and specialty vehicles for vehicle dynamics, handling, vehicle control development and test engineering applications. SuspensionSim simulates the kinematic behavior of vehicle suspension systems.

Xitadel recently completed purchase of a portion of the business interests in India of the Allegis Group Services (India) Private Limited (ASI), a wholly owned subsidiary of Allegis Group Inc. ASI has represented Mechanical Simulation Corporation in India since early 2009.

"Mechanical Simulation is very pleased to announce our new agency agreement with Xitadel, and the opportunity this will create to enhance relationships with existing customers as well as to create new users in India," said Terry Rhoades, president of Mechanical Simulation. "Xitadel will continue our reputation for excellent sales and technical support in India with many of the same staff employed by ASI for this purpose. This transition of trained and talented staff to Xitadel will ensure the ongoing growth of our markets in India, and continue our strong tradition of excellent customer support."

CarSim, TruckSim and BikeSim use the VehicleSim architecture to provide accurate and realistic predictions of vehicle dynamics in a form that can be easily used by engineers, technical and marketing staffs. CarSim simulates the acceleration, braking, handling and ride of cars and car-trailer combinations over any road surface or terrain and can be applied to passenger cars, race cars, light trucks and utility vehicles. This software is used to design, develop, test and plan vehicle programs, and empowers engineers to make better decisions involving vehicle dynamics, and prove initial concepts, select components and perform advanced analysis of existing vehicles.

TruckSim operates just like CarSim, but with specific alterations to allow for simulation of medium to heavy trucks and buses, which use a different steering system than cars. TruckSim also accounts for dual tires, multiple axle configurations and wide range of tractor-trailer combinations.

BikeSim is specifically designed to simulate the behavior of motorcycles and scooters for engineers who do not have the months or years necessary to learn to use older simulation methods. BikeSim analyzes the response to rider's inputs - steering torque, braking, shifting, throttle, body lean and lateral shifting of the body mass.

"Xitadel is pleased to establish this partnership with Mechanical Simulation," said Prakash "Krish" Krishnaswamy, CEO of Xitadel. "CarSim and related products from Mechanical Simulation are technology solutions of choice in the industry for traditional vehicle dynamics applications. They are especially relevant to the development of new mechatronics systems in active safety, advanced powertrain and suspension systems. These are areas of growth in emerging markets like India."
