Task Force Methods and Tools for Virtual Development and Validation

The task force aims at driving forward methods and tools for virtualization and virtual approval by bringing together the key players in research and development in Europe. Our main goal is to reinforce the introduction of virtual approaches and to facilitate the paradigm shift towards digitalization independent of the application and the industrial domain.

The task force encompasses five key axis that cover

  • the seamless integration of multi-scale/-physics/-domain modeling & simulation
  • Big data, data analytics, cloud approaches
  • High performance computing
  • Artificial intelligence and machine learning
  • Advanced Visualization techniques

Due to its focus the task force is transverse by nature and will consequently support all other EARPA task forces in terms of virtual methods and tools.
