Ansys: Driven by Simulation

January 4, 2024 Conrad Magalis

Join Ansys for Driven by Simulation, an exciting new video series that shows how simulation enables the rapid innovation transforming the way we move — on the street, off-road, or at the track.

Each episode celebrates breakthrough tech that’s paving the way for safer, faster, cleaner, more connected driving experiences.

Episode One - Building a Champion

The Christian Horner-led Oracle Red Bull Racing team of Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez appears poised for one of the best Formula 1 seasons on record. The team’s incredible success requires mastery of F1 race car design and engineering.

See how Oracle Red Bull Racing preps for each course using Ansys engineering simulation software to consider how variables such as the course layout, car weighting, weather conditions, air pressure, and temperature will affect their car’s performance.

Episode Two - How We’ll Move

Automated driving is more prevalent than ever thanks to the creation of an incredible network of advanced technologies, sensors, and response mechanisms.

In this episode of Driven by Sim, EasyMile and Innoviz demonstrate how they use simulation to make breakthroughs in safety technology to overcome modern mobility challenges and forever change how we move.

Episode Three - Pursuing Perfection

A team and brand recognized the world over, Ferrari’s reputation is built on their relentless pursuit of excellence in motorsport. Ansys helps Ferrari chase perfection in various ways, from accelerated development of new car concepts to providing the real-time insights needed to guide on-track decision-making. Ansys is also a key technical partner of the Ferrari Challenge, supporting one of the greatest customer experience events in motor racing. 

Episode Four - Limitless Possibilities

Explore a future where electric vehicle range is enhanced through advanced in-wheel motors, reshaping the traditional vehicle design. Discover the potential for millions of unique vehicle configurations by seamlessly combining modular building blocks. In this episode, witness how DeepDrive, Ashok Leyland, and ZF are pioneering the future of mobility by integrating cutting-edge hardware and software innovations into safer, more sustainable systems.

Episode Five - Blazing New Trails

Going off-road to new and exciting terrains has never been easier, thanks to the remarkable products developed by Polaris and Potential Motors. Ansys simulation is making all-terrain mobility more accessible and safer, giving virtual solutions to complex physical problems. Watch episode five of Driven By Simulation to learn more.

Episode Six - The Heart of Advanced Mobility

Incredible progress is being made in every corner of the rapidly evolving automotive industry – from the complex systems that enable autonomous vehicles to see what's ahead, to the interactions of light that enable drivers to see what's displayed on infotainment centers. ​

In this episode of Driven by Sim, watch how HL Klemove, Continental, and 3M are using digital twins and simulation to advance connectivity and comfort while rigorously assessing risk to help ensure safety.

Episode Seven - Ansys Helps Honda Make IndyCar History

Indy 500 victory: a symphony of precision. Every element, from the engineers and pit crew to the driver and track, must work in perfect harmony. One mistake at 250 mph in front of 300,000 fans? Not an option. See how Ansys simulation comes in by watching episode seven of Driven by Simulation. It's like a virtual wind tunnel and racetrack for Honda Racing Corporation USA, letting them fine-tune the car's design, coach drivers on winning strategies, and save valuable time on physical testing.

Stock Car Safety: The Next Gen Advantage

Imagine 40 cars hurtling nose-to-tail at 200 mph for hundreds of miles. It's a recipe for disaster, which is why NASCAR prioritizes driver safety. Their secret weapon? Advanced Ansys simulations that continuously improve the Next Gen car, minimizing on-track dangers. Watch episode eight of Driven by Simulation to get up-to-speed.
