Electric cars that are fun, practical and affordable – e.GO Mobile takes a radically new approach to design, validate and produce lightweight e-cars for everyday use. Uncompromising cost efficiency and maximum flexibility are key to success in this highly competitive and fast-changing market. The traditional OEM-Supplier approach has been replaced with a collaborative research and engineering partner network. The agile product engineering process is characterized by small and fast iterations to get immediate feedback from prototype users. Rather than wasting time and effort by managing copious amounts of requirements and textual specification documents which quickly become outdated, a model-based system design allows for early system behavior validation through simulation, automatic generation of all necessary software elements for system connectivity and prototype-in-the-loop validation for constant improvement of critical performance parameters such as the e-car’s range. This session explains and demonstrates these techniques with PTC’s model-based systems engineering capabilities in combination with Thingworx as IoT platform.
