The future of mobility and transportation

Technology drivers like electrification are not just disrupting, but also expanding the mobility and transportation industry. As sustainable Electric Vehicles (EVs) emerge, we provide the means to ensure you are agile enough for the next big thing, whether you are creating a last mile mobility vehicle or an aircraft for the skies

Case studies

“Not having VR and Autodesk in our workflow not only would be a sad day, but it would be a slower process”
- Jonathan Szczupak, Director Exterior Design, Rivian

“By adopting generative and parametric design, with the contribution of industrial robots, 3D printing and artificial intelligence, we can make 90% fewer car parts a possibility.”
- Angelo Yu, CEO, PIX Moving

“Lots of people underestimate how forward-compatible the digital-coordination model is, It’s not just the basis for planning; it will stay with us for the entire life of the building”
– Till Moczarski, Porsche Project Manager, Digital Planning

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

What software does Autodesk offer the automotive industry?

Autodesk offers a wide range of software solutions. We offer concept design, visualization, project management and collaboration solutions for the Design Studio. We also offer Engineering and Advanced Manufacturing solutions for mechanical and electrical parts as well as tooling such as fixture design, augmented by simulation and generative design. We provide product lifecycle and data management tools. For factories, we offer solutions that enable our customers to plan, build and operate their factories connected to building information modelling to support digital twins.

What is automotive manufacturing software?

Manufacturing software is used to machine, print, inspect, simulate and fabricate parts. The software will virtually simulate the manufacturing processes and then control the machines for the actual fabrication process.

How does Autodesk software work together to support the automotive industry?

Within the design studio, data can be seamlessly exchanged between concept design, technical surfacing and visualization applications, with everything linked together through our project management solution. For engineering and manufacturing, data can originate from virtually any source and be used to define processes to support planning, building and operating your entire factory.

What is changing in automotive design, and how can Autodesk help?

Electrification and fierce competition is causing car companies to have to iterate faster, shorten design time whilst still being able to develop a design within constraints. However, removal of the engine has unlocked many constraints for EVs allowing you to rethink interior and exterior design. By providing efficient tools and automation between our design solutions, customers can create concepts a lot faster, reducing the time to market for these new models.
