Balancing Vehicle Comfort and Performance with Simulation-Driven Cabin Design


As consumers look for refreshing and comfortable experiences, cabin design is taking center stage as one of the main selling factors for the automotive industry. Vehicle OEMs have to consider all aspects of the cabin and improve designs to provide customers the comfort they demand.

Engineers are faced with challenges such as fuel economy and the introduction of WLTP regulations, in parallel with the rise of electric vehicles, which makes the cabin the second most energy-consuming system in the vehicle, with up to 50% battery range loss in extreme conditions. Being able to simulate quiet, comfortable, and thermally efficient cabins is becoming a necessity to meet these challenges and design the cabins of the future.

This 30-minute Webinar examines how simulation solutions can provide a holistic set of workflows targeted at designing innovative cabins faster – cabins that are comfortable, connected, yet energy-efficient.

Topics include:

  • Identifying and addressing noise issues easily and communicating with decision makers effectively
  • Examining new concerns about cabin safety and protection from critical pathogens
  • Demonstrating a fully holistic approach to the design of cabins through simulations

An audience Q&A follows the technical presentation.
