Using Virtual Prototypes To Develop Novel E-mobility Vehicle Concepts

An ESA business incubation start-up company is helping major car manufacturers to develop electric vehicle concepts and improve safety systems by turning ideas quickly into virtual prototypes.

“Foreseeing products by modelling and simulations can provide big jump-starts for companies,” explains Johannes Gerl, founder and CEO of German start-up company Modelon GmbH.

“They reduce their development efforts by saving on the number of prototypes. In addition, they often reduce the time to market.”

Supported during their-up phase by ESA Business Incubation Centre Bavaria, their Modelica simulation libraries are now used by industry in several countries for modelling the behavior of complex automotive and energy systems.

The company’s simulation approach has been used by car manufacturers to develop a wide range of novel e-mobility designs such as more efficient hybrid and electric automobiles.

Customers include major car manufacturers

Engineers at Japan’s Toyota company use Modelon’s simulation libraries in developing novel e-mobility vehicle concepts such as their i-Real for easy city transportation and short commuting.

Small, electric and lightweight, i-Real is almost an armchair controlled by two joysticks.
