Full-vehicle system modeling and simulation application

  • 16-Aug-2013 02:16 EDT

Ricardo Software’s IGNITE complete vehicle system modeling and simulation application features embedded design and optimization tools and a comprehensive powertrain library for simulation. According to the company, IGNITE helps automakers, truck, and off-highway equipment builders optimize new vehicle designs for performance and fuel economy. With a library of vehicle component “building blocks,” IGNITE allows users to quickly and accurately conduct systems-level modeling of a wide array of vehicle platforms, including conventional, hybrid-electric, full-electric, and even novel vehicle architectures. Users can build complex vehicle models, one object at a time, using flexible components and multiple configuration options. Modeling and simulation are supported from concept phase through detailed powertrain integration with quick turnaround of vehicle performance, fuel economy, and emissions prediction, claims Ricardo Software.
