We’ve arrived at a major inflection point in mobility. Everything we understand about the journey from point A to point B is poised for disruption punctuated by bursts of innovation. The road ahead is paved with exciting, yet unfamiliar experiences. How, exactly, will the mainstream adoption of electrification, automated driving, and software-defined vehicles shape our travels? Ready or not, there’s already tremendous momentum behind this shift as the industry races toward a new reality.
“The automotive industry is evolving,” says Ajei Gopal, Ansys president and CEO. “Leading automakers and suppliers are heavily investing to take advantage of market trends, including electrification and autonomy. Designs not previously considered are presented as potential solutions to launch products that were never before thought possible — and that is where simulation comes in. Ansys solutions deliver a quantifiable business impact across all aspects of vehicle development and manufacturing to solve big mobility challenges.”
Driven by Simulation, Ansys’ new online docuseries, is about to hit the streets. During each episode, host Emma Walsh will be talking to customers such as Porsche Motorsport, Aptiv, Polaris, and others about how they are solving complex mobility challenges with simulation.
What’s driving these episodes? Each touches on one of the following themes centered around how simulation is powering innovation in mobility.
In a few weeks, we’ll be airing our first episode of Driven by Simulation with Ansys Innovation Partner Oracle Red Bull Racing to learn how simulation helps the team optimize performance during both testing and competition. In fact, driver Max Verstappen, who has so far enjoyed multiple Formula One wins this season, may be on course to seal his third title.
“In the old days we would have had to prototype physically, and that’s expensive, it takes time, and you don’t get the results for months in advance,” says Zoe Chilton, head of Strategic Partnerships, Oracle Red Bull Racing. “Now, we can prototype in the virtual world, go to the virtual wind tunnel, and get data — real, valuable data — that we can use to correlate what happens on the track really quickly. So, it means we’re able to make decisions more rapidly.”
On the street, off-road, or at the track, Ansys empowers innovation that makes our mobility experiences faster, safer, cleaner, and more connected. Ansys offers a comprehensive suite of engineering software solutions that help engineers respond to the ever-changing demands of vehicle development as they set out to redefine mobility. Simply put, when it’s “Driven by Simulation,” it’s driven by Ansys.
