TECNALIA is the first leading private and independent research and technology organization in Spain and the 5th largest in Europe, employing 1445 expert and international people (164 PhDs) and income of 131M€ and over 4.000 clients. TECNALIA operates in the following market sectors: Industry and Transport, ICT, Sustainable Construction, Energy and Environment, Innovation Systems, and Health and Quality of Life, and it is very active in FP7, participating up to December-2013 in 377 projects and coordinating 81 of them.

TECNALIA is also participating within the launching of the main KIC’s of the EIT, the KETs, the FET Flagships initiatives, towards the Horizon 2020 Programme, where TECNALIA is actively involved, as well as in the definition of other EU Work Programmes, through CDTI, EC, etc. TECNALIA also has key alliances with the main EU research centres through the EUROTECH, EARTO, JIIP, and ERANET AERTO. TECNALIA belongs to the previous Artemis Steering Board, and now ECSEL Board, and belongs to ENISA NIS Groups of Experts on Security, PPP-Green Vehicles (EGVIA), PPP-Big Data, EARPA, ERTICO, SEF – Stakeholder Engagement Forum on Micro & Nanoelectronics.

Main tasks in the project:

Tecnalia will participate in the activities within task 2.2 of the project. These activities comprise the development of an integrated macro model containing the entire cabin related models, thermal model, vehicle model and driving cycle model (hardware & software, using MiL and HiL techniques). TECNALIA will develop vehicle  (dynamics and powertrain) and driving cycle models as a part of the environment in which the DOMUS resulting models are going to be validated.

The validation of the vehicle cabin model  is also to be performed by TECNALIA using the vehicle model and real-world driving cycles. Energy consumption assessment will be done according to envisaged reductions in realistic driving scenarios, and therefore the vehicle range extension.
