IGNITE - drive-cycle simulation

IGNITE - drive-cycle simulation

Drive-cycle simulation

IGNITE is used extensively for simulating full vehicle system models over standard and user-defined drive cycles.  Included driver models and vehicle system controllers, combined with faster than real-time simulation, make IGNITE perfectly suited for full duration drive cycle simulation.  Predict and optimize fuel consumption and emissions over legislative operational duty cycles.

Key features

  • Simulation speeds up to 100+ times faster than real-time
  • Standard legislative drive cycles included within Powertrain Library
  • Transmission shift strategy model
  • Hybrid controller models
  • Torque Converter lock/unlock strategy model
  • Built-in, configurable, clutch launch control
  • Advanced post-processing and visualization
