Virtual Vehicle Research GmbH


The Virtual Vehicle Research GmbH is Europe’s largest R&D center for virtual vehicle technology with more than 300 employees. Research priority is the linking of numerical simulations and hardware testing, which leads to a powerful HW-SW whole system design and automation of testing and validation procedures. Following this focus on industry-related research VIRTUAL VEHICLE is the innovation catalyst for future vehicle technologies. The international partner network consists of around 100 national and international industrial partners (OEMs, Tier 1 and Tier 2 suppliers, software providers) including over 40 national and international scientific institutions. Virtual Vehicle is the largest COMET funded research center and is active in 40+ EU projects.

Role and Key Contribution to the Project

Virtual Vehicle is the coordinator of the greenSPEED project and is in charge of the dissemination, communication, and exploitation of the project results. With its vast experience, it is further developing and applying advanced modelling and simulation techniques including digital twins and multi-physics battery models to predict and optimise cell performance in early development stages. Further activities include the support of the cell production process by virtually assessing the influence and sensitivity of production parameters and thus minimising the number of experiments and accelerating the optimisation of cell production steps.
