Altair Start-Up Challenge 2020

March 7

Altair Start-Up Challenge 2020

Altair is a leading provider of enterprise-class engineering software enabling innovation, reduced development times, and lower costs through the entire product life cycle from concept design to in-service operation. Our simulation-driven approach to innovation is powered by our integrated suite of software which optimizes design performance across multiple disciplines encompassing structures, motion, fluids, thermal management, electromagnetics, system modelling and embedded systems, while also providing data analytics and true-to-life visualization and rendering

Today’s products are complex involving multiple domains and physics. A good design can command premiums in the market place. However, the time and costs involved must be managed well to make a meaningful impact. Most startups, we reckon, could use simulation technology to aid their product design thereby reduce time to market.

Altair is happy to partner with Startup India and Invest India to invite ideas from the Startup community in 3 areas / themes namely:
– Simulation technology for product design & development
– Model Based Embedded Development ; and
– Digital Transformation Leveraging IoT, AI & ML

Altair’s goal for the challenge include:

(a) help to reduce the number of functional prototypes AND reduce the time taken from start to tooling readiness
(b) help to create algorithms related to embedded systems
(c) help effective use of Altair AI, ML & IoT platforms for product innovation, predictive maintenance, real time asset monitoring and digital twins

Detailed Eligibility Criteria
