Proven Development Platform for Efficient Vehicle Testing

Vehicle development

The development of modern vehicles with extremely complex powertrain concepts puts high requirements on new development and validation methods with the associated tools. In order to save costs and reduce development times, road tests are increasingly being transferred to vehicle testbeds and replaced by simulation. Transferability and a balance between the individual test environments (off-line simulation, hardware-in-the-loop, component testbed, vehicle testbed, road, etc.) must be guaranteed.

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...
New vehicles must be tested and certified in relation to many different aspects before the operating license is issued. These aspects include, for example, driving noise, performance, consumption, emission and electromagnetic compatibility. AVL offers emission, fuel economy, greenhouse gas test, NVH and EMC solutions for vehicles on a chassis dynamometer, from small motorcycle and passenger cars up to light and heavy-duty trucks.
Hybrid Vehicle Powertrain Systems combine conventional powertrain components, an internal combustion engine and transmission, with new electric components, electric motor, power electronics and high voltage energy storage, such as a battery. AVL's development of a Hybrid Powertrain System efficiently combines our expertise of the different single components with our capabilities to integrate these components into a system optimized to meet CO2/fuel consumption reduction targets.
Automation systems have to provide innovative and flexible solutions takinge the latest automotive trends into account. In addition the best automation system is of no use if it is not stable and reliable. This concerns product quality and delivery dependability, as well as maintainability and eypandability. Investment protection is constantly in focus.
AVL CRUISE™ as a vehicle system simulation solution is one of the AVL tools in a unique open and scalable aftertreatment development solution. It enables the consistent modeling of all physics and chemistry relevant to exhaust gas aftertreatment systems during all stages of the development process. The AVL Aftertreatment simulation suite, consisting of the tools AVL BOOST™, AVL CRUISE™ and AVL FIRE™, provide a seamless development approach with the re-use of models and results among tools...
AVL offers innovative solutions for the emission automation of all typical testbed types and applications on the basis of a scalable and powerful platform.
Electrified Powertrain Systems integrate powertrain components such as internal combustion engine and transmission with electric components - electric motor, power electronics and high voltage energy storage, such as a battery. AVL's development of Electrified Powertrain System efficiently combines our expertise of the single components with our capabilities to integrate these components into a system optimized for fuel consumption reduction.
Battery development on a system level is supported by AVL CRUISE™ which includes a battery resistance model and other electrical components required to model and analyze any kind of EV/HEV drivetrain configuration including multiple electrical network levels within one vehicle.
Since control units are an essential vehicle part, supporting the development of different xCU by integration capabilities from MiL to SiL to HiL is one of the basic capabilities of AVL CRUISE™ and AVL CRUISE™ M. An overall system level simulation enables the analysis and development of different controllers, focusing on the interactions between different components and systems as well as separate, component-dedicated, control units. The open integration concept, with a wide range of...
