Overview of Tools

The dSPACE tools interact smoothly throughout all development steps. No matter whether you are developing software functions, modeling vehicles, environment sensors and traffic scenarios, or running virtual test drives on PC clusters. 

MicroAutoBox® Prototyping Hardware
  • MicroAutoBox® II – compact and robust real-time prototyping system with various I/O interfaces and functional safety mechanisms for in-vehicle use
  • MicroAutoBox Embedded PC – shock- and vibration-proof MicroAutoBox II extension with Intel® Core i7 processor and Windows® or Linux operating system
  • NEW: MicroAutoBox Embedded SPU1) (Sensor Processing Unit) – stand-alone prototyping system or MicroAutoBox II extension with multicore ARM® CPU and embedded NVIDIA® GPUs for high-performance sensor data processing
