More stability with MotorcycleMaker

the experts from the Italian engineering firm Soluzioni Ingegneria have investigated the conditions under which critical instabilities occur when riding a motorcycle and how they can be avoided. Their research has resulted in control technology for a semi-active damper system. Its effectiveness has been validated in virtual test driving with MotorcycleMaker.

Assistance systems for an efficient use of energy in electric vehicles

As part of the joint project "Assistance systems for an efficient use of energy in electric vehicles", the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), in cooperation with the German Federal Ministry for Education and Research, studied whether the energy efficiency of an electric vehicle can be increased by using detailed map data as a basis for the longitudinal control and the behavior of the vehicle.

Virtual radar sensor with characteristic properties

Rain, glare or dirt – factors any driver is familiar with as interfering with the perception of the environment affect sensors as well. Advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) have to cope with them and initiate vital actions in spite of faulty sensor data. Researchers from the Institute for Automotive Engineering of TU Graz together with Magna Steyr Engineering developed a radar sensor model that realistically simulates the sensor properties.
