    EDAG LIGHT COCOON – POSSIBLE PARADIGM SHIFT FOR FUTURE MOBILITY

VEHICLE FUNCTIONS

To most of us, buying a new car is the second biggest investment we make, next to our home. Expectations runs high, and when we take the wheel we want everything to respond swiftly, intuitively and safe.

The experience while travelling by car has become the principal selling point. Air conditioning, comfort, safety features and connected services are to a large extent integrated, and for us as engineers this calls for an holistic view on functional development. 

At HRM EDAG we possess and master the tools needed to reinforce your brand and satisfy your customers.

Vehicle safety

"Integral safety" is the coordinated interaction of active and passive safety requirements, and therefore compliance with the relevant safety requirements, including certification. For us, it means even more: our vehicle safety experts are already involved during the concept phase. A great advantage, as most of the modifications made to the vehicle's structure and interior components at this stage influence the deformation characteristics of the car in the event of a crash.

Cooling / air conditioning

A great deal has happened since the advent of the first air conditioning system at the beginning of the 19th century. Originally just a simple means of providing fresh air, these systems have developed into intelligent automatic climate controls which have a very positive influence on the ambience of a vehicle. Apart from the feel good factor, however, air conditioning also fulfils other functions: for instance, a well-adjusted atmosphere in the car helps to improve the driver's concentration. Modern systems are of enormous importance if the car is to be driven safely - they prevent fogging, defrost icy patches, dehumidify.

Component development and integration

From the concept phase through to start of production, we optimise the function, cost and deadlines of the component families, seat belts, airbags, steering wheel and rollover protection system at module level. And, of course, integrate them in the complete vehicle. For seat belt anchorage, relay mechanism or windowbags: we are your experts for the integration of complex components.

Acoustics, vibration and driving comfort

Acoustics and comfort play a decisive role in the driving experience in modern vehicles. Only if the car is as noise-free as possible and delivers maximum vibration and driving comfort will it make a lasting impression on the customer. We attach a great deal of importance to a pleasant driving experience, and are therefore working on the acoustic and vibration-related qualities of modern cars. Our aim is to consciously design the vehicle's sounds in line with vehicle character and the overall concept. An aim that meets the requirements of discerning automobile customers.

Our team of professionals at HRM Muller

Our team of professionals at HRM Muller are equipped with an extensive knowledge in structural dynamics, mechanical vibrations and acoustics. Our goal is to provide our clients with the most efficient services. Utilizing state of the art measurement systems and analysis tools, we are committed to offer reliable and optimum solutions. Our areas of focus include Automotive NVH, Building Acoustics, Noise and Vibration Root Cause Analysis, Mechanical/Structural Systems Diagnostic and Prognostic Health Management.

As the Scandinavian sales and support agent of Müller BBM VibroAkustik System, we have an extensive expertise in PAK measurement systems and are available to take part in projects from early stages to finalizing. PAK provides an all-round solution for measurement, analysis, and evaluation of sound and vibration signals and has found wide and positive resonance world-wide thanks to its practice-relatedness and high flexibility.


Aerodynamics

The point of aerodynamics is to make it possible for a vehicle to travel against the wind with as little air resistance as possible. This is enormously important, as experts see aerodynamic optimisation - along with many other improvements relating to weight and engine efficiency - as an effective way of reducing fuel consumption. Expert knowledge is required here, as it is important to analyse the effects on vehicle handling, but also, for instance, on pedestrian protection. The latter sometimes conflicts with vehicle superstructures, which are becoming flatter and more streamlined.

Powertrain / chassis

It is no longer enough today to develop new types of powertrains and chassis concepts. The key lies rather in the intelligent integration in the overall concept or complete vehicle.

Our Vehicle Integration Powertrain / Chassis department will do this for you. We accept responsibility for the functional integration of the powertrain and chassis systems in the vehicle. Our range of services extends from feasibility studies and concepts for series development to approval recommendation and sample testing of the systems at the suppliers' premises and customers' works.
