Siemens Digital Industries Software is sponsoring Team Sonnenwagen Aachen – a German student initiative focused on developing new sustainable mobility concepts – in the design and development process of the Sonnenwagen 3 solar race car. Sonnenwagen leverages Siemens’ Teamcenter® software to address their challenge of coordinating and optimising the interdependent areas of aerodynamics, mechanical and electrical systems, and vehicle structure on a tight schedule. By streamlining the exchange between NX™ software and Simcenter™ software including Simcenter™ STAR-CCM+™ software and Simcenter™ Amesim™ software, Teamcenter allows Sonnenwagen to exchange design models across applications more easily and efficiently.

Sonnenwagen is using Teamcenter, a tool within Siemens’ Xcelerator portfolio of integrated software and services, to speed up their design process and limit the additional need for planning and coordination. Designing a solar car like the Sonnenwagen 3 requires a team to handle many different parts that need to be integrated into the main assembly. By using Teamcenter as a data management tool, Sonnenwagen has been able to accelerate iteration loops and design a better Sonnenwagen 3.
