Institut für Produktentwicklung (IPEK),
Karlsruher Institut für Technologie (KIT)

IPEK – Institute of Product Engineering is a research facility at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). The field of research is scientific product development and innovation with a focus on drive systems and mobility. A key aspect is the development of model based and experimental product validation methods, which are applied to different cases such as the identification of dynamic phenomena and their causes in the vehicle, the analysis of energy efficiency measures or the examination of dry and lubricated friction systems within complex drive systems.
