    1. Elektrobit Wants to Ramp Up Autonomous Driving with robinos

      Automotive technology is evolving more rapidly than ever. But compared to the overall tech world, innovations still materialize in production vehicles at a snail’s pace since carmakers are impeded by three- to four-year product cycles. Self-driving technology is also moving more quickly than anyone ever imagined.

      Expanding customers’ computational horizons

      Anyone driving today’s cars enjoys the benefits of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) but may not know it, as CFD likely saves them money on fuel. That’s because carmakers use CFD analyses to ensure that air flows over and around the car as efficiently as possible to reduce drag and improve gas mileage.
