Automotive

Organised in 6 technical departments, we provide our expertise and skills for each phase of the automotive development V cycle.

agap2 teams work in electronics, mecatronics, automatic systems, running gear, etc.

agap2 expertise

  • The automotive market is subject to standards and restrictions that are pushing vehicle manufacturers to develop hybrid vehicles. In the face of these changes, internal combustion engines have to meet these new standards to remain competitive.

  • agap2 is working on three trends aimed at reducing CO2 emissions: the downsizing of the engine, reducing engine capacity without losing power, selective catalytic reduction (SCR), used to reduce nitrogen oxides, and the reduction of vehicle weight.

  • agap2 is working on the entire vehicle engineering activity (Product and Process Engineering), which enables us to be present from the design phase (design, computing, simulation, etc.) up to going into production (production engineering, stamping, assembly, etc.) and also in the transversal activit
