Formula Student/ SAE

Modelon's tools for race vehicle design and evaluation are applied by student teams in the Formula Student/SAE competition.  The competition teams build a one-seat Formula car that is evaluated for race performance, design quality and production costs. 


Modelon libraries are used in undergraduate education to help students develop a better understanding of virtual experimentation. The Vehicle Dynamics Library for example, enables students to realize the benefits of simulating real-life scenarios early in the design process.


Modelon supports universities and research institutions with tools and expertise for modeling and simulation. This allows researchers to focus on their areas of study, benefiting from modeling and simulation results without having to become immersed in the technological implementation.
