Advanced vehicle and drivetrain development

TMETC's AE department coordinates cross-department projects to develop advanced drivetrain technologies to meet future legislative and customer requirements. Significant expertise has been developed in the following areas and systems:

Advanced transmission and hybrid systems
  • Focused on technology development and validation
  • Design, analysis, verification and validation capabilities
Dynamic systems modelling and simulation
  • Physical modelling in support of technology development
Drivetrain control system development
  • Software in the loop through to rapid prototyping
  • Industry standard CAE capabilities: MATLAB, Simulink, Stateflow
Embedded Systems
  • Platform & process and tool development
  • Automatic climate control ECU development
  • Battery Management System (BMS)
  • Hybrid vehicle management
