While the shift to electric is primarily motivated by environmental and sustainability concerns, it opens several opportunities and challenges for vehicle dynamics optimization. Electric vehicle development requires interactions between additional integrated sub-systems (battery pack, power electronics, electric drive, etc.) to be understood and optimized. These additional sub-systems result in an expanded set of design parameters related to hardware configuration, component sizing, and control schemes and pose a significant vehicle design challenge. Any change to a particular vehicle attribute could impact other attributes at the component, sub-system, or system level. Compounding this development challenge is the number of potential EV layout configurations.

Adams Car allows users to create complete virtual prototypes of electric vehicles using prebuilt templates. Users can run these prototypes through multiple open and closed-loop vehicle events and scenarios. Using this approach, engineers can perform the same tests they usually run in a test lab or on a test track virtually. All this in a fraction of the time and without the need for a physical prototype.

This webinar will highlight within Adams how to:

  • Efficiently create Electric vehicle models with different configurations and architectures using a template-based approach
  • Integrate high-fidelity EV propulsion sources and controls systems to create realistic models
  • Explore vehicle behavior with technologies such as regenerative braking and torque vectoring


Ready-made vehicle templates and guided workshops will be made available for download.

Benefits of integration between Adams Car and DATADVANCE’s pSeven software platform will be demonstrated via an industrial use-case involving the optimization of an automotive suspension damper.

In modern adaptive suspension systems damping properties can be adjusted on the fly, depending on road conditions and driver preferences. An optimal balance between ride comfort and vehicle handling however needs to be maintained. Integration of Adams Car with the pSeven software platform allows the setting of multiple optimization criteria and the automated study of model responses, through a wide range of varying input parameters, under the influence of various design constraints.

Advanced algorithms of pSeven combined with SmartSelection technology allow engineers without specialized knowledge in optimization methods and Design Space Exploration to quickly switch between different problem statements and obtain an optimal combinations of design parameters.

Webinar agenda:

  • An overview of pSeven and DATADVANCE
  • A brief overview of FGUP NAMI where the application was developed
  • A step-by-step demonstration of the workflow for parametric analysis and optimization of automotive suspension shock absorbers to ensure passenger comfort and vehicle drivability
    • Integration of pSeven and Adams Car to flexibly customize the calculations of various vehicle driving modes
    • Design space exploration of front and rear dampers using Adaptive Design of Experiments
    • A two-criteria optimization of vehicle damping parameters on a rough road through a Surrogate Based Optimization method.
