- dSPACE's battery simulator paves the way for electromobility
Paderborn, December 9, 2011 Paderborn's technological company dSPACE was granted an award for its exceptional achievement for the development of automotive battery systems. An international jury consisting of members from automotive companies such as Lotus, Toyota Motorsport, Ginetta, Cayman Dynamics and Spyker awarded this year's "Hardware Innovation of the Year" prize to dSPACE. With dSPACE's products, the high-voltage batteries of electrical vehicles can be simulated with extremely exact precision. This technology pioneers the way for electric mobility that is designed for everyday use. "dSPACE is a relatively young company that has consistently pushed the boundaries," summarizes jury member Keith Read, "Its simulation of high-voltage batteries - something the automotive industry really needs as it pushes EV development - is a classic example”.
The products that were the decisive factor behind dSPACE receiving the award are being used by over 20 international automobile manufacturers and suppliers worldwide to develop hybrid and electrical vehicles.
