Ricardo’s IGNITE tool now includes Modelon’s OPTIMICA

Integration of Modelon’s OPTIMICA Compiler Toolkit will advance the Ricardo Software IGNITE product’s simulation speeds and capability – and offers the opportunity for future significant enhancements.[image_frame style=”framed_shadow” align=”center” alt=”Ricardo’s simulated car” title=”Ricardo’s simulated car”]https://www.car-engineer.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/04/Ricardos-simulated-car.jpg[/image_frame]

Ricardo Software today announces a key partnership that will deliver immediate benefits to users of its IGNITE complete vehicle system simulation product, as well as enabling significant future developments. In the upcoming 2016 product release, planned for May, IGNITE users will have instant access to Modelon’s advanced OPTIMICA Compiler Toolkit, a Modelica and Functional Mock-up Interface (FMI) based computational platform for system design.

Integrating IGNITE and OPTIMICA offers advantages for system simulation users, with a three-fold increase in the speed of compilation and simulation, providing time-savings. Moreover, it provides expanded compatibility with proprietary and open source Modelica libraries (covering two-phase fluid, thermal, hydraulics, and more), and comprehensive support of the FMI, further enabling execution of multi-domain and multi-scale studies in IGNITE.[image_frame style=”framed_shadow” align=”center” alt=”Model schematic” title=”Integrating IGNITE and OPTIMICA offers advantages for system simulation users, with a three-fold increase in the speed of compilation and simulation”]https://www.car-engineer.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/04/IGNITE-schematic.jpg[/image_frame]

The result of this partnership will bring together IGNITE’s comprehensive ground vehicle performance and fuel economy simulation capability with Modelon’s leadership in Modelica and FMI technology.

“We’re thrilled to be partnering with Modelon to bring new and exciting capabilities to market” states David Higbie, Ricardo Software Managing Director. “We’re confident that improving IGNITE’s speed and agility will strengthen its position as a technology leader in the Model-Based-Design space, further enabling our users to achieve faster and more advanced dynamic simulation results, and create more fuel-efficient vehicles and better product designs.”

“We are very proud to supply Ricardo and its customers with our foundation technology for Modelica and FMI modelling and simulation” states Magnus Gäfvert, CEO of Modelon. “The industry expertise embedded into IGNITE combined with Modelon’s state-of-the art modelling and computational technology in OPTIMICA provides a powerful platform for high impact vertical solutions in vehicle system simulation.”
