Abstract The automotive industry is experiencing a major transformation driven by societal and environmental trends leading to an acceleration of autonomous driving, electrification and new mobility solutions. Therefore, car manufacturers and OEMs are facing new challenges to make vehicles more comfortable and personalized. Indeed, they need to provide solutions for vehicle of the future respecting standards and certifications without physical prototypes while optimizing time and costs development. The main purpose of ESI interior solution is to use virtual prototypes based on a single core model enabling to test static, thermal and acoustic comfort of passengers in any position inside the cabin while minimizing energy consumption of vehicle and this at the early stage of interior and seat development process. This paper presents the approach that is used to virtually test new innovative equipment inside a vehicle interior.
