Simulation Tools for Rapid Innovation in Vehicle Engineering (STRIVE)
The Virtual Engineering Centre at the University, along with North West based partner organisations is part of an AMSCI-funded project to create a new ‘digital’ supply chain for the UK automotive sector.
STRIVE is developing an integrated solution of high fidelity simulation, immersive virtual prototypes and processes for evaluation and, ultimately, application for the advancement of the UK automotive industry and other advanced manufacturing sectors.
STRIVE tools will enable manufacturing teams to make decisions based on reality at very early stages in the development of a new model. The result will be significantly reduced timescales for the development of new vehicles and enhanced build quality
