Braking Test Benches

Testing electronic brake systems using realistic braking forces

For testing electronic brake systems under realistic operating conditions, dSPACE offers test benches with real brake components. 

Key Benefits

With the dSPACE braking test benches, you can create a test environment for virtual test drives to evaluate and analyze real braking systems at an early stage using different control and function algorithms. Our braking test benches are designed to test electronic brake systems under realistic operating conditions. For this purpose, the vehicle dynamics are simulated, and the effective braking forces are applied to the brake by a linear actuator.

The general system setup includes a brake robot, a real part compartment, and the hardware-in-the-loop system for computing the simulation models. In the real-part compartment, the hydraulic brake system can be installed, including all related components, from the brake pedal to the brake caliper and the brake discs and all the relevant control units.

Available Interfaces for Industrial Drive Inverters

dSPACE offers different interfaces for industrial drive inverters depending on your requirements.

For highest performance, as required for example in braking applications, dSPACE uses the proprietary TWINsync interface from KEBA Industrial Automation Germany GmbH (formerly LTI Motion GmbH). This interface was developed together with KEBA and allows for a PWM-synchronous update rate of 0.125 ms.
