Challenges and Opportunities of Collaborative Design: Case Studies for Electric and Automated Mobility

September 3, 2020 4:15 - 5:45


The presented panel discussion will introduce recent outcomes of several Horizon 2020 projects, which are funded under different programmes but characterized by a common feature – fostering industry-academic partnership towards new design technologies for complex road mobility systems. The projects under discussion are ITEAM, CLOVER, PBNv2, ECODRIVE (Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions ITN and RISE) and XILforEV (H2020-EU.3.4. - Smart, Green and Integrated Transport).

The speakers from industrial companies (AUDI, Siemens, Virtual Vehicle, Toyota) and universities (TU Ilmenau, KU Leuven) will share experience from these projects to demonstrate their impact on development of new generations of electric and automated vehicles through the use of innovative collaborative design approaches.

In this regard, the session will cover the following topics: Remote, distributed and shared experiments – Common approach for industrial design and Open Science; Digital Twins as enablers for the development of quiet eco-efficient powertrains of the future; Soundscaping for future powertrain vehicles; Need of virtual development process for an OEM: Challenges of connected testing; Intersectoral training through research: Preparing professionals for future mobility engineering.

This session can be of interest for different target audiences to increase public perception of cross-sectoral partnership benefits for innovations in intelligent, user- and environment-friendly road mobility.
