e.GO Mobile AG, headquartered on RWTH Aachen Campus, develops and constructs cost-efficient electric vehicles for short-distance travel. Since March 2016 a VR-based design optimization is integrated into the highly iterative development processes used by production researcher and e.GO Mobile CEO Professor Günther Schuh and his team.

Enlarging the methodological toolbox of the development processes by means of Virtual Reality becomes possible through a cooperation between the e.GO Mobile AG and our research and service group. Visualizing the planned vehicles in the highly immersive virtual environment of the aixCAVE enables the researchers to evaluate the vehicles’ design and discuss optimization options.
