Electric and software-defined powertrain systems

The next generation of vehicles are powered by electricity and significantly defined by their software. Due to software-defined properties that enable additional degrees of freedom, virtual test driving supports attribute balancing between vehicle dynamics, energy efficiency and drivability.

Complex software, which is deployed in a variety of vehicles, can be calibrated and tested for different virtual prototypes at an early stage by integrating it into CarMaker. One example is the testing of the SOC estimation of the battery management system (BMS) in real driving scenarios.
