Sustainability awareness in engineering design through serious gaming

Abstract Sustainability considerations are traditionally difficult to trade-off with technical and business requirements in an early design phase. Hence, design teams need support to reflect early on in the process, on how sustainability may affect profitability and customer value fulfilment in the long term. The commoditisation of modelling and simulation techniques points to gamification and […]

Data-driven value creation in Smart Product-Service System design: State-of-the-art and research directions

Abstract The emergence of IoT has propelled the traditionally known Product-Service System (PSS) to be characterized by smarter technologies, enabling them to collect and process data from the operational stage and facilitate communication between the customer and the provider. Commonly referred to as Smart Product-Service Systems (Smart PSS), these systems promise to create value at […]

VaViM – Validation of virtual models used for simulation of autonomous vehicle systems | 2022-

In order to achieve scalability and robustness, verification and validation (V&V) of self-driving vehicle systems need to be largely performed virtually. This requires validated models on sensors, vehicles and environments where the systems are to operate. The aim of this pre-study is to identify state-of-the-art (SoA) and high-priority research questions within methods for validating models […]
