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.
Electric vehicles are no longer a trend but an established fact. In order to make the correct decision on which technological approach – BEV (battery electric vehicle) or REEV (range extended electric vehicle) - best meets the requirements of the market, the manufacturers specific boundary conditions and economic aspects have to be balanced with a multidisciplinary approach. For the design engineers at AVL this challenge is well known. To find the solution that meets best the required...
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.
The calibration and validation of a new tractor is a vital task. Verification of the functionality and durability during development and validating whether a newly developed product fulfills the needs and the expectations of the customer is an essential part of the development of every single product worldwide.
Vehicles communicate with each other and with the infrastructure, linking the powertrain to the vehicle's environment opens new possibilities to optimize fuel consumption and reduce emissions in real-world driving conditions via the interaction of all powertrain components. This also offers new possibilities for performance, driving pleasure and safety for classical as well as hybridized and electric powertrains. AVL's Connected Powertrain™ product and service portfolio supports OEM in...
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...
