VEOS is a PC-based simulation platform for validating the software of electronic control units (ECUs) in early development process stages. A wide range of models − function models, virtual ECUs, bus systems, and plant models – can be simulated with VEOS independently of any specific simulation hardware.
See how to simulate virtual ECUs with the HIL simulation system SCALEXIO.

As customer expectations rise and Euro NCAP requirements get tougher, the cost of developing advanced driver assistance systems threatens to become unmanageable. dSPACE offers the solution: a well-coordinated tool chain for function development, virtual validation and hardware-in-the loop simulation.
Well-coordinated tools for simulation, testing and visualization are indispensable in validating modern driver assistance systems. Developers need a quick, easy way to model the properties of the vehicle under test, as well as road networks, traffic and electronic control units (ECUs), and to visualize driving maneuvers realistically. Together, the Automotive Simulation Models (ASM), ModelDesk and MotionDesk from dSPACE form a perfectly coordinated tool chain for this task.
dSPACE VEOS is a PC-based simulation platform that promotes the use of virtual validation in the development of electronic control units (ECUs). VEOS makes it possible to simulate a wide range of different models − function models, Functional Mock-up Units (FMUs), virtual ECUs (V-ECUs), and vehicle models – independently of any specific simulation hardware in early development stages.
For multi-model scenarios, VEOS supports importing, connecting and running any number of functions and plant models based on Simulink or Functional Mock-up Interface (FMI) 2.0 thereby extending the scope of your applications.
Running on a standard PC, VEOS gives function developers, software architects and ECU testers numerous new options for virtual validation in an early project phase.
VEOS works hand in hand with other dSPACE products to provide a complete tool chain for the development and testing process. This means that tools and models which are commonly used in rapid control prototyping and HIL simulation can also be used in the virtual world. Similarly, layouts from HIL simulation can be reused in PC-based simulation with VEOS and vice versa. VEOS also provides open interfaces for you to connect and utilize your existing tools.

VEOS is part of the MathWorks Connections Program. dSPACE works closely together with MathWorks to make sure that C code generated with the Simulink® Coder™ can be integrated and simulated with VEOS. Visit the MathWorks Connections Program website to learn more.
Compliance with FMI ensures that models created in various modeling tools can be exported as Functional Mock-up Units (FMUs) and that these FMUs can readily be integrated in VEOS-based virtual validation projects. In such projects, FMUs can be integrated together with other FMUs, virtual ECUs (V-ECUs), and Simulink® models. The user workflow for importing and connecting FMUs to other model interfaces is identical for all supported model types. Variable and parameter access during simulation is supported by ControlDesk® Next Generation, AutomationDesk and XIL API.
dSPACE supports the open FMI standard for an easy integration of simulation models from various sources.
