Ricardo Software and IPG Automotive implemented advanced real-time engine models in IPG’s virtual test driving platform CarMaker

A physically accurate real-time engine model created by WAVE-RT has been integrated into IPG CarMaker. The coupled solution allows a new level of realism for simulating transient vehicle behavior under user-prescribed driving conditions. Possible applications include: detailed fuel efficiency studies, OBD calibration and testing, drive cycle simulations, race lap time optimization and more. A demo of this new capability will be shown at Ricardo Software’s upcoming European User Conference, which will take place in Ludwigsburg on April, 8th 2014.
