New ID.3: ‘Today, safety wouldn’t be possible without simulation’

To begin with, the new airbag in the ID.3, which inflates between the two front seats, was developed virtually on the computer. How did that work and how did a supercomputer precalculate these crash situations? Ernst Glas, who is responsible for calculation as Head of Vehicle Safety, tells us.

Finding the right balance between design and construction

The concepts of design and technical feasibility are brought in line using a digital data control model (DDKM). This visual simulation solution makes it possible to calculate and display the latest stages of development in a fraction of a second. This saves time, and with it money. In episode six of “Becoming ID.” with Stefan Langewellpott, Head of Class-A Surfacing and Visualization, we discuss how exciting it was to be the interface between the design and technology behind the new ID.3, and to calculate and physically reproduce in 3D the light, shade and reflections on the car.
