Powertrain Design Tools:
State of the art design tools in automotive engineering
still lack the power, sophistication, and automation of
design tools for the electronics industry. It is our goal
to fundamentally advance automotive design engineering by
introducing optimization and physics-based design
principles into standard industry design tools. This will
allow designers to globally optimize design criteria such
as size, efficiency, cost, weight, volume, and achieve
unprecedented reductions in design turnaround time.
Our first step will be to implement a basic design
system using a combination of industry-standard tools.
