TotalSim Ltd are very pleased to announce a funding grant of nearly £120,000 from The Niche Vehicle Network for an R&D project.
Announced at the Low Carbon Vehicle show on the 14th September 2016, the project focuses on a Cloud Based Simulation Environment for Electric and Hybrid Drivetrains Specification. It is a collaborative project led by TotalSim with partners Canopy and MEPCS.
John Iley was present at the LCV Show on behalf of TotalSim to collect the cheque.
The project is to develop and test an online hub where Niche Vehicle Manufacturers can perform cutting-edge simulation studies to determine the specification of features of an electric or hybrid drivetrain. The developed hub will aim to provide an intermediation service between component manufacturers and NVMs; component manufacturers will be able to upload component models to the platform, and NVMs will be able to explore the behaviour of these components in various drive-cycles and vehicles and, thus, determine their suitability. The power of cloud computing will yield design insights to NVMs in minutes that could otherwise take months using more traditional methods.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank The Niche Vehicle Network and in turn Innovate UK and OLEV for the funding they are providing.
