Simulator transforming China's hydrogen car industry

Scientists have created a computer simulation program which allows car manufacturers in China to virtually test hydrogen fuel cell engines instead of building expensive prototypes.

The digital platform has significantly sped up the research and development process and reduced costs for several automotive and fuel cell companies, including FAW (First Automotive Works), SHPT (Shanghai Hydrogen Propulsion Technology) and Sunrise Power.

It uses mathematical formulas to accurately model the physical and chemical interactions inside the engine.
