Simulate a breakthrough

Since the battery is the wall holding back truly efficient and affordable EVs, it's good to see progress in giving engineers the right tools to explore solutions. These are good developments to see.

It's definitely great to see CAE vendors buckling down to meet this challenge. Having a set of predefined tools specifically architected to explore the tradeoffs for new lithium ion battery designs will go a long way in helping engineers finally zero in on the right mix that can advance the EV cause.

Do you know if this technology is getting used yet, Beth. Or is it too new to tell?

Interesting story, Beth. I haven't talked to any battery developers about this, but it stands to reason that a simulation product like this one could theoretically help eliminate some of the painstakingly slow physical science steps that are required in any battery development. Let's hope that this can help compress the development cycle.
