ASM is a tool suite for simulating combustion engines, vehicle dynamics, electric components, and the traffic environment. The open Simulink models are used for model-based function development and in ECU tests on a hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulator.
All the Simulink blocks in the model are visible, so it is easy to add or replace components with custom models to adapt the vehicle’s properties perfectly to individual projects. ASM’s standardized interfaces allow models to be easily expanded to meet specific requirements or even create a virtual vehicle. Roads and driving maneuvers can be easily and intuitively created using graphical tools with preview and clear visualization.
|Open Simulink model||All model blocks are visible||Custom models can easily be added or used to replace model components|
|Online-Simulation||Real-time simulation on real-time hardware, e.g., DS1006||Hardware-in-the-loop simulations with production-level ECUs|
|Offline-Simulation||Simulations as early as the controller algorithm design phase||Controller validation in early development stages|
|Online tunable parameters||Direct parameter access during real-time simulations||Online parameter optimizations and behavior studies|
|ASMSignalBus||Simulation signals are part of a structured Simulink signal bus||Standardized and fast access to model variables|
|Model interoperability||ASM models are easy to combine to create a virtual vehicle||An entire virtual vehicle can be simulated|
