Automotive and Ground Transportation

Validate automotive design, autonomous and e-mobility system with our technology.

Stringent environmental regulations, car model proliferation and design styling constraints force Automotive OEMs to increasingly use simulation to tackle complex and often conflicting requirements. This is mainly related to reducing vehicle design cycle time, lowering the weight and cost of vehicles and improving the performance with more efficient consumption and cleaner emissions.

Automotive engineers can benefit from our software solutions VOLTA and modeFRONTIER to innovate the simulation-driven product development and achieve better vehicle designs with increased performance at reduced production costs.

Address challenges in Automotive simulation

Vehicle engineering

Large vehicle development projects require parametric simulations across a wide spectrum of disciplines (i.e. powertrain, external aerodynamics, safety, control systems, heating ventilation and air conditioning). To satisfy these stringent requirements Multidisciplinary Design Optimization (MDO) studies are performed from the early design stages to fine-tuning the single components. With modeFRONTIER and VOLTA, we enable automotive engineers to collaboratively manage MDO processes.

Autonomous and ADAS

ADAS (Advanced Driving Assistance Systems ) and AD (Autonomous Driving) systems are the next big frontier for automotive companies. The challenge lies in finding the right balance between minimizing the number of accidents and casualties while maximizing the comfort of traveling in complex conditions. Our technology supports automotive engineers with a scenario-based verification plan that streamlines the ADAS/AD validation process, addressing both the time and legislative constraints.

e-Mobility

The increasing electrification of powertrain systems for more efficient consumption and cleaner emissions is one of the largest technology transformations in the automotive industry. OEMs and emerging vehicle makers rely on digitalization to innovate the development process and make electric cars efficient, reliable and profitable. Our technology empowers them to automate their simulation processes, deliver high-quality electric vehicle design solutions and reduce development time.
