Unlike many other engineering service providers, AVL is characterized by in-depth, acknowledged understanding of the propulsion system. We also incorporate this strength into our knowledge of complete vehicle development to establish comprehensive solutions. We use this basis to weigh up the interaction with all vehicle systems and to develop a harmonious overall vehicle.
The advantage of this approach is particularly evident when it comes to the development of battery electric and fuel-cell-powered vehicles: With the high-voltage battery and the fuel cell, the driveline includes components that determine the package and the cost. Starting there allows us to predict the influence on the rigidity, ergonomics, and costs of the overall vehicle very early on and accurately.
This enables us to develop a very cost-efficient system overall. All at an early stage. And simulation plays an important role in this.
Development to Production Maturity (SOP)
If desired, we can work with partners to take care of complete vehicle development for selected areas. From the idea phase to market maturity.
We advise new market players in particular on business case definition for their electric vehicle platforms. We take a deep dive into the technology and make concrete statements about the technical implementation.
For New Mobility, we develop concepts on topics such as people movers, connected mobility, or new ecosystems. Which is of particular interest to start-ups, municipalities, and automotive suppliers in the broadest sense.
The best thing about my job at AVL is working with colleagues who contribute their many years of expertise from different companies. And the opportunity to create something new with a start-up spirit in the field of AVL Vehicle Development.
