Vehicle benchmarking in a competitive landscape of newly released vehicles

AVL Global Vehicle Benchmarking

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...

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.
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-DRIVE™ - The Objective Tool for Driveability Assessment and Development - in co-simulation with VSM "Vehicle Simulation Model" - a mathematical model for the simulation of driveability in real-time - extends the capability of objective driveability evaluation from road to lab.
