Design and integrate VR to Volvo Penta Virtual Test Cell

Background of thesis project

Volvo Penta is dedicated to pushing the boundaries of innovation. Recognizing the need for more effective and immersive testing methods we have developed an in-house Virtual Driveline Rig, a state-of-the-art testing platform designed to simulate real-world conditions and assess driveline components comprehensively. However, as technology advances, so does the need for more advanced testing methods.

In light of this, Penta has embarked on a pioneering thesis project aimed at revolutionizing the way driveline testing is conducted. The project's focus lies in creating a Virtual Reality (VR) environment that seamlessly integrates with Penta's Virtual Driveline Rig. By leveraging the capabilities of VR technology, this initiative seeks to enhance the realism and depth of testing, allowing engineers, researchers, and developers to analyze driveline components under even more dynamic and challenging scenarios.

Suitable background

M.Sc. students. System controls, Computer science, Electrical Engineering or similar.
