At the Automotive Research Center (ARC) we develop simulation and modeling environments for discovering and assessing critical ground vehicle technologies. We focus on problems associated with management of power and energy within vehicles, mobility and survivability of the complete vehicle system, including the human operator. The Center employs extensive experimental facilities for the validation and verification of models in the area of energy conversion and management of power within vehicles. Our models and simulations are all accompanied by analytical tools to assess optimality, reliability, survivability, and mobility in harsh environments with constrained fuel supplies and over a variety of terrains.
The Center relies on the collaboration of researchers from multiple universities and disciplines in order to bridge fundamental technology gaps. Alongside basic scientific goals, we focus on army-relevant topics and partner with industry to leverage and transfer our efforts and results.
