Where lightweight
meets safety

With our optimization software, we provide greater crash safety and lightweight design in the automotive sector.​


Our impact


Our software is a game-changer in vehicle development, ensuring materials are utilized with maximum efficiency. Our technology allows for significant reductions in vehicle weight, thereby cutting costs and emissions, driving the industry towards a greener, more cost-effective future.


While reducing weight, our software ensures compliance with rigorous safety standards by examining the deformation behavior of a vehicle in crash simulations. It identifies and corrects performance deficiencies, ensuring occupant safety in the event of a collision.


Our software guarantees that the optimized vehicle structures are viable for large-scale manufacturing. By adhering to predefined production constraints, it ensures that the optimized components can be produced without the need for extensive re-evaluation by engineers.

The future of crash optimization

Our vision

Dreidimensionale Inlay-Strukturoptimierung im Low-Speed Crash RCAR

As part of a project at Bergische Universität Wuppertal, funded by the German Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action together with the Research Association of Automotive Technology (FAT) and the German Federation of Industrial Research Associations (AiF), methods for topology optimization of fully scalable three-dimensional frame structures for crash loads are being explored. The goal is to use flexible geometry descriptions to automatically optimize parts of vehicles using combined profiles.


We at Induvos are proud to announce that we're supported by the EXIST Transfer of Research Grant, provided by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action. This grant supports the commercialization of an innovative method for optimizing mechanical structures, developed at Bergische Universität Wuppertal. With funding of about 750,000 Euros, we're working on developing advanced software. This software allows our customers to efficiently and reliably perform structure optimizations, marking a major milestone in technology development and application in the field of crash optimization.


Your questions

Our software outperforms manual optimization by delivering faster results and superior outcomes due to its ability to simultaneously examine and compare various structural designs. This approach often results in more efficient structures that meet crash requirements with reduced weight.

If you’re interested in our offerings, we will arrange an introductory meeting to demonstrate our software and explore potential applications within your organization. If a promising use case is identified, we’re eager to conduct a pilot project to showcase the benefits of our software in your specific scenario. We provide comprehensive support during the software implementation into your processes and infrastructure. Should any uncertainties remain, we offer a short-term trial license for further testing. Once satisfied, we will customize a licensing agreement to meet your long-term needs. Additionally, we provide training sessions to familiarize your team with the full capabilities and usage of our software.

The price of our software is determined based on its individual value potential and is set upon consultation. If you require a rough cost estimate, please don’t hesitate to contact us. Standard software support is included in the licensing fees.

Our software is typically distributed through one-year licenses that must be prepaid for the corresponding period, granting the user the right to utilize the software. Each parallel vehicle/structural optimization requires a separate license. After purchase, the software can be downloaded and installed for free from our online portal.

Software support is included in the license fees. Should you encounter any issues, feel free to contact us during regular business hours via email or phone. We aim to promptly resolve any problems in collaboration with you. For special support needs, additional paid services are available. We are also in the process of developing comprehensive software documentation, which will soon be available to our clients, allowing for efficient self-resolution of minor issues.

The current version of our software allows for topology and shape optimization of crash-loaded profile structures, such as vehicle side sills. The application spectrum is continuously expanding; soon, we plan to include optimizations for flat structures. Our vision is to enable effective optimizations for all crash-relevant body components in the future.

No, our software does not directly perform simulations. It is integrated via an API with well-known simulation programs, where it collects simulation data to then conduct structural optimizations automatically. For questions regarding the compatibility of our software with different solvers, pre- and post-processors, please feel free to contact us.
