The ideal Solutions for Vehicle Engineering

Learn more about the Automotive industry

As the industry reinvents itself, simulation is more important than ever in vehicle engineering. Smart electronics, infotainment, telecommunications, advanced software - vehicle manufacturers and system integrators have brought innovative and transformative technologies to consumers. This industry is also rapidly making self-driving vehicles a reality with the introduction of advanced driver assistance systems - ADAS - and autonomous features. On the other hand, rising fuel costs and environmental concerns are restructuring all aspects of vehicle engineering - from aerodynamics, engine and transmission, passenger comfort, structural rigidity, and electrical and electronic systems.
