The simulation-driven design has become a standard in the automotive industry. It is the key to making self-driving vehicles a reality.
The competition among car manufacturers is getting fiercer and more sophisticated, which leads to an innovation surge in the industry. Smart electronics, audiophile sound systems, infotainment solutions, advanced telecommunications, and software are the new ways of creating a remarkable vehicle.
Car makers are delivering innovative, groundbreaking technologies to increasingly demanding consumers. The simulation-driven design has become a standard in the automotive industry. It is the key to making self-driving vehicles a reality. Advanced driver assistance systems are just a step towards fully autonomous features.
At the same time as the innovations increase, a product design cycle needs to be reduced in order to stay ahead of the curve. According to McKinsey, rapid simulations can make a huge difference in reducing time to market.
CFD simulations are already commonly used by the biggest automobile manufacturers, but only fully automated software can lead to the actual democratization of this technology, and make it standard also among the suppliers and SME:s. Ingrid Cloud platform opens such opportunity for small and medium-sized companies.
Full automation allows non-experts to run simulations with Ingrid Cloud Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform. Without any help from CFD specialists, designers can verify vehicle and component models at the earliest stage of the process and cut development cycles. Long before building physical prototypes with no hardware investment or software licenses.
