Project launch VOKAL


The Teaching and Research Area participates in project VOKAL


Starting in June 2022, the Teaching and Research Area Mechatronics in Mobile Propulsion contributes to the project VOKAL focusing on the validation of a hardware-in-the-loop driving simulator for the development of CO2-emission-optimal engine control units.

The introduction of the Euro 7 emission standard increases the requirements in powertrain development, as real road tests have to be performed under strict conditions. Virtual development methods such as simulations may reduce the testing effort required for this and increase the quality of solutions to minimize fuel or energy consumption and pollutant emissions.
The focus of this project is to validate the detailed simulation models for mapping complex interactions between the real ECU, the modeled drive components and the vehicle environment on an innovative hardware-in-the-loop (HiL) based driving simulator using real measurements from a vehicle.
