Virtual and Physical Prototyping to Demonstrate Design Feasibility

  title={Virtual and Physical Prototyping to Demonstrate Design Feasibility},
  author={Steven M E Demers},
Hybrid electric vehicle technology has become a preferred method for the automotive industry to reduce environmental impact and fuel consumption of their vehicles. However, the added cost of the hybrid electric system has hindered their sales. A more cost effective design of an electro-hydraulic braking system is presented. During the design process, emphasis was placed on demonstrating conceptual and system feasibility using virtual and physical prototyping. The role of prototyping in the… CONTINUE READING
