Hybrid and Future Vehicles

Modelon helps companies such as Toyota use Dymola and the Vehicle Dynamics Library to develop future vehicle concepts.

Toyota's new personal mobility concepts have significantly different properties compared to conventional vehicles, making it essential to use a model-based design approach. The required models are developed based on the Vehicle Dynamics Library to enable multi-fidelity and multi-domain representations with tight integration in the control design tool-chain. The same models are used to design and predict the behavior of the studied concepts, especially the influence of the suspension design, and to design the control systems.
