Simulation Tool IVIsion

Focus Areas

Electric vehicle fleets; automated simulation processes; modular structure; comparison of concepts; calculation of driving performance and energy requirements; optimization of operational strategies; overall vehicle concept (all types)

IVInet - Measurement Data Processing

With IVIsion and IVInet, entire public transport networks can be simulated
  • automated processing of large amounts of data from long-term measurements for simulations (GPS data, CAN data, passenger load)
  • applicable for entire public transport networks
  • algorithms specially adapted to scenarios in public transport

IVImap - Mapping

Mapping and map processing with IVImap

With IVImap, image-based maps can be

  • read,
  • scaled and
  • edited.

The powertrain maps necessary for simulations are often not available. Therefore, IVImap already contains a large variety of maps of typical components. These maps can be adapted to the exact values of the respective application using IVImap.

IVIdrive - Overall Vehicle Simulation

Vehicle model

  • more than 100 pre-set vehicle and powertrain configurations
  • vehicle from up to three segments and five axles
  • map-based models of combustion engines, electric engines and gear boxes
  • power electronics based on characteristic curves
  • on-board power supply (high and low voltage)
  • energy storages (batteries, caps)
  • cooling of components
  • compressed air system
  • air-conditioning of passenger compartment
  • tire-road wheelslip model
  • user interface for vehicle configuration

Fields of application

  • calculation of driving performance, energy balancing
  • dimensioning of components, system optimization
  • testing of operational strategies
  • pre-configured
  • adaptive regarding performance of powertrain
  • depending on type of driver for a flexible chraracterization of  vehicles
  • self-learning SOC control of electric energy storages
  • intelligent auxiliary management

Distinctions in Public Transport Simulation

  • wayside energy supply at stop and while driving
  • consideration of various recharging strategies
  • high positional accuracy of the simulation (precise halting at stops and recharging points)     
  • consideration of emission-free traffic zones
  • mapping of a high number of different auxiliaries
