Virtual Vehicle Research Center

Co-simulation and simulation model connection software, real-time enabled

Posted by Wolfgang from Virtual Vehicle Research CenterResponsive · Innovative Products and Technologies · Austria

Summary of the technology

We can provide a commercially available co-simulation environment connecting 20+ simulation software products with arbitrary sensors. The technology is real-time enabled.
We search for companies in the manufacturing industry which would like to make use of this technology to build up a digital manufacturing twin for efficient ramp-up and predictive maintenance incorporating methods of machine learning and artificial intelligence.
We aim at starting a funded research project with several use cases to develop this digital manufacturing twin in relevant industrial environments.

Virtual Vehicle Research Center

Current development status

We have a working prototype of a virtual hot stamping process of automotive carbody parts. Here, the environmental temperature is measured with a sensor (PTC) attached to a data acquisition system (ViFDAQ) and provides a thermal boundary condition value for the numerical simulation models of three considered production stages: furnace, transfer and stamping (Matlab, LS Dyna). The simulation models retreive the sensor measurement data in real time and respond on it.

Desired business relationship

Technology development in the area of model order reduction and surrogate modeling of manufacturing processes is necesseray in order to make the solution real-time enabled.
