Keep Your Eyes on the Goal with Virtual Test Driving
The test methods offered by IPG Automotive enable you to meet all requirements and improve the efficiency of your vehicle development
The requirements of the development process are increasing
Vehicles have never been as safe, comfortable, responsive and efficient as they are today – a major achievement that benefits all road users. At the same time, however, this development presents engineers with a great challenge. Vehicle systems are becoming ever more complex and interconnected and can no longer be considered in isolation from each other.
Vehicle systems must be tested under realistic conditions, i.e. in scenarios, in the context of the whole vehicle. This has resulted in an increase in the requirements of the development process, making the calibration and validation of vehicle systems more and more complex.
We have a solution for you: virtual test driving
Our aim is to ensure that you can virtually test your systems in the whole vehicle in realistic traffic situations, using an approach that is accurate in every detail. This unique method enables you to meet the increased demands of the development process. According to our automotive systems engineering approach, systems are tested in their entirety as they cannot be regarded as the sum of discrete subsystems existing independently of each other.
By using virtual test driving in addition to real-world test driving, you will increase the efficiency of your development process considerably, thereby achieving significant reductions in costs and time. And you can use front-loading to test your innovations at an early stage in the system network of the whole vehicle and in every conceivable traffic scenario.
You can always rely on our support
We are on hand as your partner throughout the entire development process and we have set up our company with this in mind. From the right Simulation Software, through high performance Real-time Hardware and turnkey Test Systems up to the support offered by our Engineering Services: IPG Automotive provides you with everything you need for virtual test driving, drawing on our many years of experience in the simulation field.
In developing our simulation solutions, we have placed special emphasis on the application areas of Vehicle Dynamics, Driver Assistance and Powertrain. But we will also be delighted to help you use virtual test driving to optimize your development process in Additional Areas of Application.
