Platform for PC-based simulation
  • Early validation of ECU software by PC-based
  • simulation
  • Comprehensive, realistic simulation of ECU network communication for CAN and LIN buses
  • Seamless integration with RCP and HIL tool chains
  • Openness through support of automotive standards
  • NEW: Support of Functional Mock-up Interface
  • NEW: Support of multi-model scenarios

Application Areas

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.

Key Benefits

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.
  • New functions can be integrated with the overall ECU software to test how they interact.
  • A virtual test bench with powerful engine and vehicle dynamics models is permanently available for designing complex controller strategies.
  • Complex vehicle and environment models can be integrated with virtual ECUs to simulate and test an entire virtual vehicle.
  • In preparation for hardware-in-the-loop simulation, models and tests can be created, set up and run on a PC independently of the hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) system.

Systematic Extension

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.
