Ilona Peltier and Fabian Canal set the women's and men's world records for fastest human-powered vehicle at the 2019 edition of the World Human Powered Speed Challenge last month in Nevada, riding a bicycle designed using a software application developed by Neural Concept, a spin-off of Switzerland’s Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne Computer Vision Laboratory.
The artificial intelligence-driven software uses deep learning to take a set of constraints—such as pilot height, width, and weight—to perform aerodynamic simulations.
The software's algorithm learns from the data to propose the best designs within the constraints provided.
Said Neural Concept's Thomas von Tschammer, "The big advantage of this technology is that it can speed up simulation processes, allowing companies to increase efficiency and decrease costs, in addition to optimization."
