Ricardo experts practice attribute-led engineering for clients throughout the product development lifecycle, adding value and creating a strong link between users, systems, and components. Structured Computer Aided Engineering processes, virtual validation, and model-based development help reduce time and cost.
Attribute develop for complex vehicle architecture and systems
As vehicle architecture and systems become more complex, businesses require solutions that offer seamless integration. Our experts work with clients to understand their unique attribute requirements, evaluate architectures, and optimise trade-offs, using analysis to minimise development timescales.
Ricardo has significant attribute development expertise in electrified powertrain, fuel cell thermal systems and combustion systems. Our unrivalled cross sector experience across the automotive and industrial sectors, results in targets that meet the needs of the future of mobility.
Our specialist capabilities are focussed on providing attribute development for clients across the automotive and industrial sector. We support analysis and the integration of solutions in areas that include:
- Noise, vibration and harshness (NVH)
- Architecture integration
- Performance and economy
- Thermal management
- Weight reduction
- Vehicle dynamics
- Cost reduction
Ricardo specialists work with a broad spectrum of clients, from OEMs and Tier One suppliers to government sector, and research and development institutions and organisations.
Ricardo provides full attribute development services, supporting businesses with bespoke embedded software solutions across all stages of product development. From initial concept through to deploying stable builds of software platforms.
The team have a long history of providing innovative solutions, from our global technical centres to some of the world’s biggest brands and organisations.
Our experts develop embedded systems software on baremetal, lightweight ROTS, as well as the AUTOSAR framework. We create innovative software solutions to support the development of new products and provide expertise on software solutions, bespoke systems from the ground up and project support on existing development programs.

Why Ricardo for attribute development
Computer Aided Engineering
Ricardo uses Computer Aided Engineering and software solutions, to simulate performance to improve product design and assist in the resolution of engineering problems for a wide range of automotive and industrial uses.
Ricardo engineers use bespoke virtual validation processes. including CAD and CAE, to implement 3D versions of products that can be tested and approved. Analysis supports clients to virtually prove their design concepts, through the simulation of multiple environments.
Model-Based Development (MBD)
As hybrid and electric vehicle systems become increasingly more complex, Ricardo’s expertise in model-based development supports clients across several sectors to simulate complex control processes, reducing product development time and cost.
This service is offered within the following sectors.
