TCD and AVL Collaborate in the Area of Model-Based Development To Achieve Best-In-Class Vehicle Performance and Driver Satisfaction

AVL is proud to be chosen by Toyota Customizing & Development Co.,Ltd. (TCD) as partner in the area of model-based vehicle development. The partnership enables the introduction of cutting-edge technologies such as virtual vehicle concept definition, Driver-in-the-Loop (DiL) and model-based calibration and testing to promote efficiency and quality improvements during the development process.

Starting in 2016, the successful collaboration constantly evolved towards a trusted long-term partnership. The range of collaboration areas constantly increases, always having the goal of maximizing the virtualization of the development process and achieving best-in-class driving performance in mind. «Using AVL’s vehicle simulation tool AVL VSM™ as well as state-of-the-art analysis, visualization tools and the jointly developed methodology enabled us to achieve best-in-class driving attributes and digitalization of the development process», Hiroshi Yuchi, General Manager Research & Development at TCD.

Mario Oswald, Head of Virtual Vehicle and Energy Management at AVL, adds: «Having the chance of supporting TCD vehicle development is a great honor for AVL. Jointly pushing the limits and combining competences drive the successful collaboration».
