General Motors' Chevrolet Cruze

General Motors uses IBM (IBM) computers to virtually model vehicles and to do driving and crash-test simulations. The 2011 Chevrolet Cruze went through virtual crash-test simulations along with real-world crash tests. Engineers were able to model different crash scenarios and make design changes that improved safety before making the vehicles that they physically crash-tested.
