Heavy Trucks and Off-Highway

Heavy Trucks and Off-Highway

Truck and off-highway engineering require close attention to pollutant emission requirements and fuel efficiency expectations. While redesigning their products to meet these important needs, vehicle manufacturers and suppliers are simultaneously engineering advanced electronics, HMIs, communications, telematics, controls and software for applications such as automating agricultural tasks, better fleet management and driver comfort.

Simulation allows engineers to focus on system-level objectives, such as tuning the entire powertrain system for efficiency, reducing aerodynamic drag in trucks, and ensuring effective cooling of underbody components. Deploying extensive up-front virtual design exploration using ANSYS solutions helps to ensure efficiency, safety, quality and reliability early in the design cycle.

In addition, ANSYS advancements in model-based systems engineering and certified embedded code generation can drastically reduce development time.
