Subaru uses ANSYS tools to accelerate hybrid vehicle design

Subaru automates 95 percent of development processes of its e-Boxer system, achieving accuracy, speed, efficiency

Subaru Corporation is using tools developed by Pittsburgh-based ANSYS, Inc. to create control systems that deliver unrivaled safety and reliability for their next-generation hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs). The automotive OEM is using ANSYS SCADE to automate and expedite the precise design and validation of embedded software in the electronic control units (ECUs) for the company’s new e-Boxer system.

Designing ECUs that effectively manage and maintain safety, performance, and energy efficiency is a top priority for HEV designers. Synchronizing and tightly integrating these components requires a faultless control system to ensure that safety-related, mission-critical functions, such as steering and braking, are fully operational in the wake of unpredictable events that could trigger a system failure.
