Featuring various aspects of driveability assessment, AVL-DRIVE™ measures and visualises human perception of driveability. The assessment of a driver’s needs and feelings in a vehicle is an essential factor for automotive engineering, ensuring that the vehicles are adapted optimally to the intended target group even at an early stage of the development process. As a vehicle developer who pays particular attention to powertrains, AVL has been developing and refining a driveability assessment system, including software and GUI, for the last 15 years. Already in the early days of this system, it was a major achievement to measure and assess driver input and vehicle reaction (especially with regard to engine and transmission). Besides this technologically and psychologically challenging basic task, attributes such as simple and easy handling, robustness, immediately available output of results and reporting gained in importance, especially during the last years. These attributes ensure that technical data is displayed in a transparent, easy-to understand manner within short time. Another challenge are interfaces to other assessment systems, providers of assessment data and development environments, such as engine test benches or chassis dynamometers. The presentation vividly demonstrates how AVL measures and visualises human perception of driveability.
Mr. Erik Bogner born in 1971, studied Mechanical Engineering & Economy – Vehicle Technology at Technical University of Graz. In 1998 he started his career in a R&D cooperation of Technical University and AVL Graz developing methodologies for “Objective assessment of passenger cars Handling behavior and performance”. Up from 2002 he became customer project leader for AVL’s Driveability assessment tool AVL-DRIVE, focused on vehicle attribute analyses and vehicle assessment methods development. Since 2005 he is leading the AVL-DRIVE & VSM department at AVL Graz as Manager of Driveability and Simulation, from 2005 to 2006 he lead also the foundation of Transmission Calibration department as Manager of Transmission Calibration. In total more than 15 years’ experience in vehicle development & optimization as well as in SW product development.
