According to the QS ranking, it belongs among the top 500 universities in the world. It is the top technical university in the CEE region.
The Centre of Vehicles for Sustainable Mobility, part of the Czech Technical University in Prague, is a leading engineering consultancy specialising in powertrain and vehicle simulation and testing. With expertise in 0D, 1D-CFD, and 3D-CFD, combined with testing, we offer complex tailored solutions for internal combustion engines, hybrid powertrains, electric drives, and controls.
Our services include both simulation and real-world powertrain and full vehicle testing, providing comprehensive engineering solutions. Using top-tier CAE simulation tools, we actively contribute to customers’ capabilities through knowledge transfer and training.

Role and Key Contribution to the Project

The role of the Czech Technical University in Prague is to provide modelling, simulation, and optimisation support in work packages focused on optimizing the frugal EV architecture, Component & Systems optimisation / Digital Twin development, and model validation. The main strengths lay in powertrain simulations and optimisation, including detailed battery chemistry leading to more precise SOC and State of Health estimates. Route planning and optimisation of vehicle usage in fleet operation will also be carried out.
