At 1001 HP, the Bugatti EB 16.4 Veyron seems set to become the fastest and most expensive production vehicle ever built. And for active safety at speeds of over 400 km/h, a whole range of electronic control units (ECUs) are needed. Bugatti first performed intensive validation work on the ECUs in the laboratory, using dSPACE Simulator. This allowed functions to be tested efficiently, both in individual tests and in a network, with no danger at all to driver or vehicle.
