Abstract: Traditional product development process is costly and time-consuming. It requires system components being fabricated, assembled and tested. Systems-engineering based sustainable development enables optimised solutions to the problem by confronting all mutually opposed requirements. This paper proposes application of an advanced tool of systems engineering – integrated virtual reality with artificial intelligence in the sustainable development of braking systems by integrating design, calculation and testing. It enables design engineer |to see| the results of the design, calculation, simulation, tests and/or verification work. The proposed methodology is transferable to other automotive systems and components.
Keywords: artificial technologies; sustainable development; braking systems; systems engineering; virtual reality; artificial intelligence; vehicle design; vehicle braking; sustainability; automotive systems; automotive components.
