Deliver innovation at pace in the fast-evolving electrification race
Many challenging engineering implications need balancing to deliver innovation at pace for the fast-evolving vehicle electrification race. However, balancing market needs, and rapid new product introductions is highly challenging for the electric vehicle (EV) market, and as always, there are two sides to the coin. On one side, automakers need to meet customer expectations for range, comfort, and durability, compliance with regulation, product differentiation, and flexible production. While on the other side, balancing profitability, product quality, cost reduction, and accelerating time to market. This on-demand webinar will touch on the Siemens Vehicle Electrification solution for this fast-moving and challenging EV market. Watch now!
Automotive innovation is at an all-time high as OEMs, technology leaders, and start-ups are moving faster than ever before to develop the next innovation that will potentially catapult them to leadership. True automotive leaders must harness complexity to gain a competitive advantage. A comprehensive digital twin allows designers and engineers to continuously optimize product design, production, and service activities, with a closed-loop connection between the virtual and physical world. With insights and data from a digital twin, companies can build connected vehicles with the flexibility to handle a wide range of products, enabling manufacturing agility while maintaining high quality. Siemens Vehicle Electrification solution allows automakers to develop and benefit from comprehensive digital solutions for the entire product development process.
Customers not only want, but demand to be, connected with real-time traffic updates, personalized playlists, alerts, and notifications are just some of the requirements customers expect in their transportation experience. And for a safe, secure, and reliable vehicle, ADAS and autonomous driving technologies will also need to be integrated, causing vehicle electrification to become even more complex because of increased contribution from electronics, electrical architecture, and software domains. Siemens Vehicle Electrification solution provides the Model-Based System Engineering (MBSE) framework needed for the complexity and intricacies of E/E systems. Optimized E/E system engineering allows electrical engineers to leverage a generative approach for system design were based on the system inputs; the tools can help navigate the needed design changes and accelerate vehicle development.
The automotive industry has been experiencing enormous pressure to lower CO2 emissions for the last decade, and automakers have responded with increased investments in developing electric vehicles. But one of the more challenging aspects of electric vehicles is overcoming consumer range anxiety. Although battery technology is improving and subsequently reducing the size and weight of battery pack assemblies, manufacturers continue to focus on reducing the weight of other systems within the vehicle. Automakers need to leverage digital twin technology for light-weighting, cabin comfort, and attribute balancing for efficient electric vehicles to meet customer demands on zero emissions and maximum range. Siemens Vehicle Electrification solution offers a broad suite of tools for creating lightweight designs and assessing performance during integration to meet range, drivability, and performance expectations.
