In launching the new center, the engineering service provider is applying the principle and expanding the scope of simultaneous engineering.
These days, vehicles are very much software-defined products. Their development and validation is highly complex. This requires a level of efficiency that cannot be achieved with hardware-oriented development – but can be with simulation solutions.
Speed up your development by implementing simple and repeatable processes: from initial concept through system design to component construction and testing with the help of dedicated simulation tools.
Automated and Connected Mobility Simulation
For ADAS/AD to be considered safe, an immense amount of testing is required. Therefore, the paradigm shifts towards virtual testing and validation using simulation techniques is the logical consequence. We offer dedicated simulation tools to support you.
Current trends such as electrification, digitalization, connectivity and driver assistance mean that a holistic, multiphysical approach is necessary. Such an approach can only be achieved through virtual analysis, optimization, and validation. We are your partner.
Currently, it can be observed that virtual development is becoming the standard in the development process. This is exactly what we have developed our Simulation Suites for. Each suite is a comprehensive simulation solution that you can use throughout the entire development process - from initial concept creation to the vehicle.
Being around for decades, we all are very familiar with the combustion engine. With hybridization, it is now taking on a new role. As a software and development service provider, we offer you expert support through all development steps - not only for the automotive industry, but also for maritime and stationary applications.
