Vehicle Mission Simulator

Problem

A Fortune 500 heavy equipment manufacturer needed a tool to simulate the performance of specific engine and transmission configurations during travel on designed routes, in order to determine suitable conditions per route.

Solution

SEP proposed a desktop application to allow the customization of various travel routes to measure engine performance during simulation. This included metrics on how the engine performed in different scenarios including local vs. cross country, hills vs. flatland and city vs. highway under specific transmission configurations.

    Advantages:
  • Used reverse engineering requirements and algorithms from existing application
  • Developed additional tools to support simulator, including fuel map tool, automation tool, data import tool, route tool

Result
The vehicle mission simulator generates reports showing fuel economy, shifting schedules and various engine metrics. Engineers are able to use the simulator in their research and development efforts. In addition, the sales force uses the system for competitive analysis of how their engines worked with various transmissions to that of their competitors.
