State-of-the-art Vehicle Energy Consumption, Performance and Cost System Simulation

Autonomie is a state-of-the-art vehicle system simulation tool used to assess the energy consumption, performance and cost of multiple advanced vehicle technologies across classes (from light to heavy duty), powertrains (from conventional to HEVs, FCEVs, PHEVs and BEVs), components and control strategies. Autonomie is the only commercial software including vehicle control algorithms developed from vehicle dynamometer test data across dozens of powertrain configurations. Autonomie provide full access to the component models and control algorithms. Users can create or update vehicles, components and control. Autonomie includes multiple versions targeting different stakeholders:


  • Content: full code access, including vehicle and component controls
  • Application examples: new vehicle/powertrain/component/controls development

Autonomie Lite

  • Content: compiled vehicle models with full access to all the parameters, including component performance maps
  • Application examples: component technology, powertrain sizing, control calibration… evaluation

Autonomie EXPRESS

  • Content: locked compiled vehicle models using vehicle speed and grade as inputs
  • Application examples: impact of large number of real world driving cycles either from simulation (e.g., micro-simulation tools such as SUMO, VISSIM, AimSun…) or measurement

Product Highlights

  • 100+ ready-to-go vehicle models from light to heavy duty with control algorithms
