Start-Stop Hybrids Make Automotive Testing Obsolete
In the race to improve fuel efficiency, new cars will shut down whenever possible, including stop signs, heavy traffic, and even when you take your foot off the accelerator. With engines, and the associated electronics, turning on and off hundreds of thousands of times over their lifetime, tests designed to replicate this environment will become time and cost prohibitive. The solution? Robust simulation and modeling. If you want to learn how, before it is too late, contact Jim Mcleish.
