Project example 1: Optimized fuel consumption for buses and lorries
Our customer has more than 100,000 employees and is one of the world's largest manufacturers of motor cars and utility vehicles.
The goal is to find optimum operating strategies to reduce the fuel consumption of buses and lorries on the basis of different driving cycles.
The SimulationX simulation software was used to build a model of the drive and brake system. This model allows the simulation and analysis of varying driving scenarios for each of the vehicle types. Code export and FMI make it easy to exchange the model between programs like MATLAB/Simulink. The results of each simulation are automatically recorded and available for information and review at any time.
By automating some of the work flows and creating a unique data base we were able to largely increase the efficiency of the simulation calculation.
