Second consortium meeting of the H2020 UPSCALE project
On 10th and 11th April, the second consortium meeting of the UPSCALE project was held. This time, the two days General Assembly took place in London, hosted by ENGYS, leader of the Work Package 1.
After nearly six months, it was a great opportunity for partners to meet and share the first results of their research carried out on integrating artificial intelligence with traditional physics-based Computer Aided Engineering. The aim of the H2020 granted project is to reduce the development time and increase the performance of electric vehicules which are required by the automotive industry to reduce global emission levels.
First, each work package leader presented the progress made and the next activities planned. For the second day, two paralel meetings were organized on the topics of computational fluid dynamics and crash simulations. Battery modelling and the definition of the geometry parameterisation using machine learning tools were the two main issues on the agenda.
What is UPSCALE?
Launched in November 2018, UPSCALE stands for “Upscaling Product development Simulation Capabilities exploiting Artificial intelligence for Electrified vehicles” and will provide solutions to improve the the development time of electric vehicles by approximately 20%.
