Reach new Design and Comfort Heights with version 2020 of ESI’s Interior Solution

DATE: June 30th, 2020
TIME: 10am CET / 12pm EST / 9am PST

ESI Interior Solution 2020 is now available. ESI Interior Solution is the new solution dedicated to the virtual prototyping of seats and interior. It includes all the functionalities from Virtual Seat Solution 2019.5 . ESI Interior Solution is dedicated to seat virtual prototyping extended with new functionalities for interior and cabin virtual prototyping

Engineering teams face an arduous challenge as they are called on to reinvent the cabin design of EVs and autonomous vehicles while maintaining occupant safety, comfort and optimizing thermal management system. In the wake of flexible and sometimes revolutionary interior layouts, comfort functions such as climate systems or new seat inclinations must be rethought to be consistent with new cabin configurations, market expectations and regulations.

With the traditional trial-and-error procedures based on physical prototypes, if an issue is detected at the final stage of development cycle, it will be too costly or late to make modifications. Such new challenges seem complicated to overcome with that method.

Join our 1h webinar to discover ESI Interior Solution 2020 which is the new solution dedicated to the virtual prototyping of seats and interior including all the functionalities from Virtual Seat Solution 2019.5. Understand how to reach new design and comfort heights of your cabin virtually and determine the optimize balance between occupant comfort and thermal energy consumption

  • Ensure the right occupant posture by predicting virtually the H-Point as well as inclusion of whiplash and comfort simulation
  • Evaluate seat performances and comfort early in the design phases by using a library of human models
  • Optimize both the thermal comfort and energy consumption of your thermal management system including HVAC and heating pads
