A conversation with Selcuk Sever, Principal Engineer at Switch Mobility, discussing its collaboration with Altair to accurately predict the range of its electric buses. With accurate range prediction, Switch Mobility can give its public transport authority customer confidence that electric buses can meet the requirements of their bus routes.
This presentation will discuss a collaboration between electric bus manufacturer, Switch Mobility, and Altair, to accurately predict the range of electric vehicles through the development and deployment of a digital twin. With accurate range prediction, Switch Mobility can give its public transport authority customer confidence that electric buses can meet the requirements of their bus routes and be a viable alternative to traditional ICE vehicles.
Presented as part of the 3rd Altair Electric Propulsion Seminar in October 2022 in Silverstone, UK.
Speaker: Selçuk Sever, Principal Engineer – Architecture, Packaging, Virtual Series & Simulation, Switch Mobility
Duration: 10 minutes
The shift from internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles to electric vehicles (EV) has provided an enormous opportunity and scope for smart electrical vehicles. The EV is a complex system involving integrated and interdisciplinary mechanical, electrical, and software aggregates. The exponential growth of smart control systems has brought forth several developments in the EV industry including Digital Twin technology. It enables close monitoring and validation of EV systems to operate at their highest efficiency to improve the economy and drive quality.
Digital twins help organizations optimize product performance, gain visibility into the in-service life of a product, know when and where to perform predictive maintenance, and how to extend a product’s remaining useful life (RUL). The Altair digital twin integration platform blends physics- and data-driven twins to support optimization throughout the products lifecycle. We take a complete, open, and flexible approach that enables your digital transformation vision on your terms.
