Drawing on its pioneering spirit, the company provides concepts, solutions and methodologies for a greener, safer and better world of mobility.
AVL constantly expands its portfolio of high-end methodologies and technologies in the areas of vehicle development and testing. With a holistic approach – from ideation phase to serial production – the company covers vehicle architectures and platform solutions including the impact of new propulsion systems and energy carriers.
To achieve the vision of climate-neutral mobility, AVL drives innovative and affordable solutions for all applications – from traditional to hybrid to battery and fuel cell electric technologies.
As a global technology provider, AVL’s offerings range from simulation, virtualization and test automation for product development to ADAS/AD and vehicle software. The company combines state-of-the-art and highly scalable IT, software and technology solutions with its application know-how, thereby offering customers extensive tools in areas such as Big Data, Artificial Intelligence, Cybersecurity or Embedded Systems.
Furthermore, AVL is striving towards a safe and comfortable driving experience for everyone and brings a comprehensive understanding of assisted and automated driving functions in different vehicles and environments into play.
AVL’s passion is innovation. Together with 11,200 employees at more than 90 locations and with 45 Tech and Engineering Centers worldwide, AVL is supporting customers in their mobility ambitions. In 2022, the company generated a turnover of 1.86 billion Euros, of which 11 % are invested in R&D activities to ensure continuous innovation.

Why: our participation to AccCellBaT

AVL’s activities in R&D projects such as AccCellBaT are one of the main drivers for innovation. The focus on the methodology of battery verification and validation is seen as one key enabler to ensure a quicker time to market in the field of battery cell and system development. The cooperation with this consortium enables AVL to work on the latest development methodologies to strengthen both product (simulation and data management) as well as services.

What: our objectives in AccCellBaT

AVL plans uses the results with specific focus on modelling to (a) enable the further development of simulation and data management tool products and consulting services, and (b) to utilize the hybrid DVP as well as the data management methodology as back-bone for all battery system development projects. Novel hybrid DVP methodology is utilized by AVL for accelerating testing activities that accompany battery development in the automotive field and beyond (in particular but not limited to storage applications).


Short time to market with fully validated technologies is key for future success in battery innovation – testing is the key enabler.
