The Guidelines and the Vehicle Performance Simulation Model for FY 2018’s Subsidy for Building Simulation Platforms to Accelerate Development of Next-Generation Vehicles have been released

Pocket

Today, we have released the following information regarding the Guidelines and Vehicle Performance Simulation Model for FY 2018’s Subsidy for Building Simulation Platforms to Accelerate Development of Next-Generation Vehicles.

 

  1. 1.Purpose of the subsidy
    This project aims to build a stable and appropriate energy supply & demand system that fits both the domestic and international economy, society, and environment. In order to accomplish that, the EPC will subsidize a portion of expenses needed to build vehicle performance assessment models, so that private organizations can efficiently lead development of vehicles by simulating the entire vehicle and not building actual vehicles for assessments. The EPC will also engage in projects to promote wide-scale use of vehicle performance assessment models, with the aim of accelerating development of next-generation vehicles and reducing energy used by the transport sector.

  2. 2.Summary of main points
    In order to popularize model-based development (MBD) and the use of models in industry-industry (i.e. between component manufacturers or between auto manufacturers and component manufacturers) and industry-academia collaboration, in FY 2016 Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry released* its Guidelines and Vehicle Performance Simulation Model. The Guidelines define the interfaces to be used among the simulation models, and the Simulation Model serves as a common foundation on how to use the Guidelines.

We later expanded the above items in this project to the domains of thermal, dynamic, and vehicle vibration performance. The members of this subsidy project also created a handbook (Subsystem handbook) with detailed definitions of the below models, interfaces for each model, etc., which we have also released.
