Productive 4.0
Electronics and ICT as enabler for digital industry and optimized supply chain management.

Efficient Development

Predictive functional validation, digital twins and complete product life cycles. VIRTUAL VEHICLE investigates and develops approaches for the key factors for efficient development. These key factors are traceability, agility, comprehensive view and partner integration.

Related projects:
ECOCHAMPS
More lightweight, robust, cost-effective as well as improve driving comfort and sadety for powertrains in commercial vehicles.
EU-LIVE
Developing a systematic approach for designing, developing and constructing L-category vehicles for urban areas (2-, 3- and 4-wheelers).

Energy Efficiency

The reduction of CO2 emissions is mandatory. On one hand the direct emission of CO2 in combustion engine driven cars has to be minimized and on the other hand the number of fully electric vehicles producing zero exhaust emissions locally has to be increased.

Related projects:
ASSURED
Fast and smart charging solutions for full size urban heavy duty applications.
Connecting Austria
Combining efficient and automated freight transport from the highway into the city.
FiveVB
