Delivering e-Mobility to the masses is not only a huge investment, but a significant operational undertaking. As OEMs, suppliers and emerging vehicle manufacturers invest billions to develop innovative electric vehicles, and optimize development and production processes, they are looking for a strategic partner to help realize their vision. Altair technologies are changing the way electric passenger, off-highway and autonomous vehicles are designed, enabling them to accelerate product development, enhance energy efficiency, and optimize integrated system performance.
Integrated system-level, multi-disciplinary and multiphysics solutions offer designers the ability to understand and optimize the complex, connected architectures of today’s battery-electric vehicles (BEVs).
As OEMs begin to create BEV for their mainstream customers to address issues like range, drivetrain efficiency and charging times, design becomes an even more vital component of the development process. This requires fast exploration of higher system voltages, innovative cooling implementations and the ongoing race to reduce vehicle weight.
On-demand, high-performance computing (HPC) presents the opportunity to securely scale simulation capabilities during peak demand, satisfying the need for detailed multi-disciplinary optimization studies on multiple programs to reduce development costs and risk.
Early design exploration can be accelerated to identify the most promising concepts and a subset of critical performance criteria by applying statistical methods for dimensionality reduction of the huge number of design variables considered during a vehicle program.
