Identification

AirShaper provides an automated online platform to analyze & optimize the aerodynamics of products & vehicles.

AirShaper is an online tool for optimizing the aerodynamics of products & vehicles. It can be used to reduce fuel consumption of vehicles, increase the range of UAVs, increase the performance of sporting equipment and reduce wind loads on solar panels. It aims at solving the typical barriers encountered with aerodynamics simulations. Indeed, to operate this Solution no expert knowledge is required, no capex cost are needed for hardware or software. AirShaper is a cloud Solution which delivers results in a matter of days, not weeks. Lastly, the price is fixed per simulation and has no monthly fees.

The environmental benefits

  • Cut CO2 emissions by reducing aerodynamic drag of ground, water & air vehicles
  • Assess & optimize wind loads on & performance of renewable energy systems
  • Fully automated workflow capable of working with any 3D model
  • Making a coach bus 20% more efficient will cut fuel consumption by 10%.
  • A single optimized truck can reduce its C02 emissions as much as 15 tons per year.
03.

The Financial benefits

  • Vehicles: a 20% cut in aerodynamic drag results in roughly a 15% reduction in fuel consumption for road vehicles
  • Renewable energy: reducing wind loads increases the number of suitable/profitable locations for solar and mapping wind patterns helps to optimize wind energy performance
