Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) and Ansys, an engineering simulation software company have signed an agreement to support electric vehicle technology development. TCS will create a centre for excellence for advanced digital engineering in Pune for vehicle electrification using Ansys’ simulation program.
This collaboration is focused on the advancement of emerging automotive technologies for the electrification system of hybrid as well as electric vehicles. TCS Electric Vehicle CoE and Ansys will use advanced engineering simulation methods in order to accelerate vehicle electrification for global customers.
Rafiq Somani (Area Vice President, India, and South Asia Pacific) of Ansys stated, “The collaboration between the automotive industry and major technology companies has been able to deliver the best, most advanced, and most comfortable cars on the market.”
The CoE will work with EV manufacturers to develop solutions for e-powertrain components such as batteries, inverters, and power electronics, as well as their integration into EVs. Battery electrochemistry has the potential to reduce prototype build times and increase the range, performance as well as safety of EVs.
Regu Ayyaswamy (Senior Vice President and Global Head of IoT and Digital Engineering at TCS) said, “Our EV centre of excellence will create solutions that more accurately simulate the battery electrochemistry and key components of an EV powertrain. Global automotive companies will be able to accelerate product development and launch more efficient, safer, and longer-lasting EVs.”
