In this issue
In this edition of Auto Tech Review, we offer deeper perspectives about the key role played by simulation in the automotive industry towards development of vehicles.
Multiphysics Simulation Becoming A Norm For Product Life Cycle Development
Simulation is one of the most important factors in the product development process and is being increasingly deployed in the automotive industry.
Important To Build On Fame II Subsidies By Indigenising Electric Vehicle Components
Cleaner mobility is an absolute need, and there’s widespread acceptance that of all alternate fuel technologies available in the market, electric mobility is the most pragmatic solution.
Indo-Pacific Region: An Opportunity In The Making For Engineering R&D
Engineering simulation has evolved significantly over the last few decades.
“India Will Be The Most Diverse Business Model In The World”
In the market for over a decade now, Volkswagen India hasn’t exactly set sales charts afire. Last year, the VW Group launched an ‘India 2.0’ project to drive the next phase of growth in what it recognises as an extremely important market. Auto Tech Review recently spoke to Steffen Knapp, Director, Volkswagen Passenger Cars to understand the company’s views on a variety of subjects. Clearly, the company’s commitment to India is unwavering.
Simulation Key Part Of Development In Automotive Industry
The digital form of carrying out testing and validation is known as simulation, and is fast emerging as a standard for engineering development that is being applied more over physical prototyping and testing during a product development phase.
Improving Performance Through The Use Of Driver-In-The-Loop Simulations
With practical, financial and legislative restrictions on real world testing, Driver-in-the-Loop (DIL) simulation has become one of the cornerstones of professional motorsport. It now plays a vital role in everything from concept design to driver training. Recent advances at Ansible Motion with this tool have made sports car development at Honda R&D Sakura more powerful.
Additively Manufactured Lightweight Hood Hinge
Edag, voestalpine and simufact have developed the additively manufactured LightHinge+ engine hood hinge. The worthwhile result: as well as being half the weight of conventional designs, it also incorporates a pedestrian protection function. The component can be manufactured without tools, is optimised for warpage and requires only minimum post-processing.
Taking On The Master — Can Kicks Outwit Creta?
Ever since its launch, the Hyundai Creta has enjoyed an almost exclusive space for itself among a herd of compact SUVs flooding the market. While no other carmaker has come close enough to challenge the Creta in terms of performance, features and premiumness, a contender has emerged with the potential to turn the tables in its favour. Nissan recently launched the brand new Kicks in India with an ambition to reinvent itself for the Indian market. The Kicks in India is larger than its global counterpart and boasts of segment-first features. Lining it up alongside the Hyundai Creta, Auto Tech Review ran a head-to-head comparison of both compact SUVs to evaluate performance, comfort, safety, space and more. Read on for the significant and conclusive findings.
Avishkar Hyperloop Developing First Fully Automated Self-propelled Hyperloop Pod
Avishkar Hyperloop, a student team of IIT (Indian Institute of Technology) Madras, is riding high after it made it to the finals of the 2019 SpaceX Hyperloop Pod Competition that will be held on July 21, 2019 in Los Angeles, California, United States. What’s more, Avishkar Hyperloop is the only Asian team to make it to the final. SpaceX has been organising this competition since 2016 at its headquarters in Los Angeles aimed at encouraging student teams to develop their own versions of Hyperloop pods. The event attracts over 1,000 teams globally; out of which only three teams are allowed to test their pods in the track built by SpaceX.
Futuristic On The Outside & Technology-Centric Within
Toyota Kirloskar Motor, which introduced the Camry in India nearly 17 years ago, has carved out a cosy little spot for itself in the Indian market. Three model changes later, the company recently launched the fourth generation model of the Camry in India at 36.95 lakh (ex-showroom). The new Camry, despite bearing a steep price tag, is packed with several technological advancements in the powertrain as well as in the chassis design. Further, the new saloon now boasts of futuristic looks and voguish interiors. Auto Tech Review got up close with the new Camry on the streets of New Delhi and here is our take on it.
