Wolfram Computation Meets Knowledge

Automotive & Transportation

Design and simulate vehicle dynamics, powertrain controllers, chassis and safety systems, and more with System Modeler. Combine with Mathematica for control system design and optimization.

Driveline: Analyze a Drive Cycle

A model of a vehicle driveline can be used to evaluate performance measures. This example explores how the transmission control unit parameters affect fuel consumption.

To run this example, you'll need

The latest versions of System Modeler and Mathematica.
