Taken en verantwoordelijkheden

HBO student in the field of Automotive
The Technical Analysis department consists of a team with specialists, responsible for the numerical verification and validations of new vehicle concepts and vehicle designs within the Product Development division. By means of simulations, new developments on vehicle and system level are evaluated and optimized for different vehicle performance aspects: fuel economy and CO2 emission, aerodynamics, thermodynamics, NVH, vehicle handling, crash safety, durability. These simulations support the design process from the first concept ideas to the final validation and sign-off of the truck design.?
For assessing the fuel economy and CO2 emissions in our vehicles we heavily rely on simulations. An important input to these simulations is the drive cycle on which we virtually drive our trucks. This is not trivial because every vehicle drives its own unique routes. For us it's important to identify a single drive cycle which represents the majority (or median) of our customers on a specific application. The goal of this research is to extract these representative route cycles from a large data set of measured routes.
