The eMO architecture emphasizes "right size" personal urban transportation by minimizing its exterior footprint and maximizing interior space; including seating for four adults.
As a ground-up EV study, eMO also incorporates design advantages over an internal combustion engine vehicle like smoother aerodynamic surfaces and shorter overhangs. With sustainability in mind, eMO benefits from a low carbon footprint and a recyclability strategy. To reduce the overall carbon footprint of the manufacturing, assembly and other associated processes, Tata Technologies eliminated the traditional body shop and paint process, and utilizes many green product materials in eMO.
Dassault Systemes’ CATIA Contributions to eMO
"A large challenge in the development process was the requirement to fit all the required vehicle systems into a small footprint while maintaining spacious seating for four adults," Power said. "To achieve this, various powerful solutions from the CATIA portfolio were utilized to quickly develop various studies allowing the team to rapidly converge on innovative solutions.
"The development was also a global effort and required collaboration between geographically disparate locations," Power added. "CATIA became the common language of the extended team and allowed rapid comparison of proposals leading to swift decisions – truly the ‘cement of innovation’."
CATIA also was used extensively coupled with collaboration tools, enabling multiple team members to view pertinent data in real time.
