NAFEMS is prepping for its Dec. 7 event, “Simulation in the Automotive Industry: Driving Convergence to Electrification, Autonomous and Connectivity” to take place in Troy, MI.

The push for a decarbonized society is driving a transformation of the automotive industry, according to NAFEMS, with companies disrupting the field by introducing various levels of technology solutions with respect to electrification, autonomy and connectivity. New fields of innovative software features sent to customers over the air (OTA) are created with subscription-based options to generate additional sources of revenue. For this reason, numerical simulation now plays a great role and is being adopted as one of the main catalysts for bringing speed and efficiency to the delivery of these new technologies, NAFEMS reports.

Keynote addresses and their respective speakers at the event include 

  • Electrification Thermal Development: Challenges and Opportunities, Dr. Yangbing Zeng, senior technical fellow, Electrochemistry & Battery Thermal, General Motors
  • Deploying World-Class Simulation Across Ford Software-Defined Vehicles, Dr. Justyna Zander, director, ADAS Simulation, Ford Motor.

Panel Discussion

There will be a panel discussion on “Simulation Solutions: Opportunities and Challenges for the Effective Delivery of Automotive Electrification and Autonomous Technologies,” moderated by Mario Felice, principal and founder, virsolTech Engineering Consulting, LLC.
