IGNITE - complete vehicle system modeling

IGNITE - complete vehicle system modeling

IGNITE is used for system-level modelling of all major vehicle sub-systems. The built-in powertrain library from Ricardo provides years of specialist knowledge for complete vehicle system modelling of conventional, hybrid, electric and novel vehicle architectures. IGNITE delivers adjustable component fidelity for vehicle modelling – from initial concept to detailed powertrain integration.

Key features

  • Ability to model entire vehicle from a system-level perspective using only IGNITE libraries (including every major sub-system)
  • Model virtually any vehicle architecture using built-in predefined library components 
  • Rich collection of predefined examples to accelerate the model build, making it suitable for use by people who are not experts in sub-systems
  • Optimise vehicle by modelling interdependent operations for each vehicle sub-system 
  • Driveline plant models perfectly fit the control strategy development using Matlab/Simulink
  • Built-in component models include:
    • Transmission shift strategy
    • Smart hybrid controller model
    • Torque converter lock/unlock strategy
    • Configurable clutch launch control
