Ansible Motion, the pioneering specialist in Driver-in-the-Loop (DIL) vehicle simulation technology, has been awarded The Queen’s Award for Enterprise. The Norwich-based company is one of 205 to receive the award on the grounds of remarkable success in international trade.
Now in its 55th year, The Queen’s Award recognises British businesses who excel at international trade, innovation, sustainable development or promoting opportunity through social mobility. It is the highest official UK award for business.
Ansible Motion has been granted The Queen’s Award after proving it had achieved outstanding growth in overseas earnings relative to its business size and sector, as well year-on-year growth in overseas sales in the last three years.
This award comes at the end of a successful six-month period for the Norwich-based company, which expanded its team in September 2020 due to the rise in demand for simulation technology during COVID across vehicle manufacturing and motorsport sectors.
Kia Cammaerts, founder and director of Ansible Motion said: “We’re so honoured to have been awarded The Queen’s Award for Enterprise. This success would not have been possible without our strong, skilled and ambitious team, who are always working to ensure we can develop the best possible simulation technology for the fast-evolving needs of a market that includes OEMS, Tier 1s and motorsport constructors.
It has been an incredibly difficult year for business, but we are proud of the way we have risen to, and proved resilient against, the challenges of a changing world. This award is recognition of that, and all the hard work in the years proceeding it. It serves to further our ambition to continue developing the world’s most advanced simulation technology for human-related aspects of vehicle dynamics and advanced assistive systems on the road to full autonomy.”
