Meeting the requirements of emission legislation is becoming more and more difficult due to ever tightening limits (e.g. Euro 6, SULEV, etc.) and the very strong requirement to reduce fuel consumption (e.g. Europe 95 g/km, CAFE, China Stage 4, etc.). High costs due to penalties or recalls may also arise if the emission limits are exceeded in the field. Robust emission calibration is necessary to meet the emission limits for mass production. All possible conditions like an aged exhaust...
Driveability is a big issue for the driver - especially for vehicles in use almost around the clock, like construction equipment. Legal requirements also regulate allowable impacts on the driver in the future. The task is to assess driveability objectively and repeatable.
Damit Hersteller die richtige Entscheidung treffen, welcher technologische Ansatz – BEV (batterieelektrisches Fahrzeug) oder REEV (Verbrennungsmotor zur Reichweitenverlängerung) – gewählt werden soll und die Anforderungen des Marktes am besten bedient, müssen die spezifischen Rahmenbedingungen und wirtschaftliche Aspekte in einem multidisziplinärer Ansatz abgewogen werden. Den Design-Ingenieuren bei AVL ist diese Herausforderung bestens bekannt. Um eine Lösung zu finden, die die Anforderungen...
The system captures various driveability related sensor and CAN bus signals, such as longitudinal acceleration, engine speed, vehicle speed, pedal positions and vibrations. These input quantities are collected by the DMU2 (DRIVE Main Unit) and passed on to the AVL-DRIVE software for further processing and analysis. More than 100 different driving modes (engine, transmission and chassis related) are detected automatically and more than 800 driveability related criteria are rated in real-time....
AVL has many years of experience in commercial vehicle calibration and has developed a unique tool for efficient calibration process: Mobeo. This tool allows you to cut development time and cost with secured or increased dataset quality.
Die Kalibrierung und Validierung eines neuen Traktors ist eine wichtige Aufgabe. Die Verifizierung von Funktionalität und Dauerhaltbarkeit während der Entwicklung sowie die Validierung, ob ein neu entwickeltes Produkt die Anforderungen und Erwartungen des Kunden erfüllt ist ein wesentlicher Teil der Entwicklung jedes einzelnen Produktes.
Fahrzeuge kommunizieren miteinander und mit der Infrastruktur. Die Vernetzung des Antriebsstranges mit der Fahrzeugumgebung eröffnet neue Möglichkeiten für die Optimierung des Kraftstoffverbrauchs und die Reduzierung von Emissionen im realen Fahrbetrieb durch die Interaktion aller Antriebsstrangkomponenten. Dies bietet zudem neue Möglichkeiten in punkto Fahrleistungen, Freude am Fahren und Sicherheit sowohl für klassische als auch für hybridisierte und elektrische Antriebsstränge. Das...
A specific, distinctive vehicle attribute branding is essential to make cars unique and competitive. As a first step on the way, vehicle manufacturers have to benchmark their vehicles in the competitive environment in order to understand and to strengthen or improve the potential of their vehicles. AVL newly offers a comprehensive vehicle benchmarking analysis of the most important, recently released passenger cars. The objective assessment delivers an overview of results for ten main...
Hybrid powertrain applications combine the best of two worlds – with the right emphasis between combustion engine and e-motor (micro, mild or full hybrid) the achievement of stringent emission legislation and fuel consumption targets is possible. Within this context the optimal solution for a specific application does not only depend on targets for emissions, performance, efficiency, reliability and comfort, but also on its costs and its manufacturability. AVL's engineering approach takes...
