Rapid Control Prototyping

With dSPACE’s flexible prototyping systems, you can optimize the control designs for the real ECU as often as you need until they meet your requirements, all without any manual programming. Your block diagram design is automatically implemented on the system and calculated in real time.

  

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS)

Increasingly tough environmental regulations, higher safety requirements, and the need for "intelligent" mobility are major challenges for the automobile industry.
The answer to these challenges comes from active safety and driver assistance systems, which help drivers perform routine actions and give a decisive boost to road safety.

  

Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) Systems

Hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulation is the method used to test the functions, system integration, and communication of electronic control units (ECUs). HIL tests are very systematic and completely safe, even when critical thresholds are exceeded. The main goal is to detect errors in ECUs. Once detected, the situation that produces the error can be reproduced whenever and however required.

  

Powertrain Engineering

dSPACE products feature any-crank/cam technology with fully configurable, map-based setup of the crank/cam wheel geometry, providing higher flexibility and making it easy for developers to switch between different crank/cam wheel topologies and engine types. Downsizing strategies also benefit from any-crank/cam technology, because it supports engines with nonsymmetrical tooth-gap crank wheels, such as those used in downsized 3-cylinder engines.

  

Virtual Validation

Virtual validation technology enables you to prepare hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) tests and scenarios on a PC and use virtual ECUs (V-ECUs) in a HIL simulation if the ECU hardware prototype is not available yet. By using virtual validation, you can perform development, verification and validation tasks much earlier. You also reduce the number of necessary additional test systems and ECU prototypes. This answers the need for early simulation that the automotive and aerospace industries are currently facing.

  

Data Management for Model-Based Development

While electronics and software continue to advance, the amount of data that is produced – especially in model-based development – is immense. Managing this data is a growing challenge. The solution is SYNECT, a data management and collaboration software with a special focus on model-based development and ECU testing.

  

Autocoding & Functional Safety

Following successful rapid control prototyping, target implementation is performed. Functions specified in graphical form are converted to production C code and implemented on the electronic control unit (ECU) together with the drivers and real-time operating system. Automatic production code generation gives effective support in this process. This shortens coding and development times drastically and contributes to a considerable improvement in the quality of the production code.
