Following entries from 25 countries in the 15 award categories, Romax Technology has won the Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET) 2016 award for Model Based Engineering, with its innovative submission for holistic electro-mechanical drivetrain design simulation product (from concept to production).
Dr. Peter Poon, MBE, Founder of Romax Technology, says, “We are very proud to have received this award from such a prestigious and internationally recognized organization. By investing in R&D, tackling challenging consultancy projects and integrating these teams with software development, we are able to lead the way in engineering a better world with a holistic approach to driveline design and development. This leads to drivelines that are quieter, faster to market, and more efficient, durable, cost effective and environmentally sustainable, through evaluating electro-mechanical design trade-offs at the concept design stage.
“Our company ethos is to continuously improve, by developing innovative processes and adapting to the needs of automotive transmission industry, particularly electric vehicles, to provide them with much needed solutions. We are very happy to receive this award as recognition of our achievements.”
The IET Innovation Awards Model-Based Engineering judging panel (a panel of leading engineering experts in the field) commented: “This innovation puts models right at the center of the design process, bringing electrical and mechanical design teams together. This multi-disciplinary and multi-criteria way of working will produce great benefits for many products and industries.”
