Graphical user interface for parameterization and simulation

ModelDesk is a graphical user interface for simulation control, intuitive model parameterization, and parameter set management. It also provides project handling and allows parameter sets to be downloaded to offline and online simulations. The tool has an automation interface that supports Python scripts, for example. ModelDesk can be used seamlessly from parameterization to offline and online simulation, up to parameter and result management.

Key Benefits

Many Tasks – One Tool

ModelDesk is the central user interface and can be used to perform all major tasks before, during and after simulation. ModelDesk is equally well suited for model-in-the-loop (MIL) simulations or Simulink simulations (offline) and hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulations (online), so it supports an integrated process from function development to ECU testing.

During simulation experiments, ModelDesk manages parameters such as the course of roads, driving maneuvers, traffic, and vehicle configurations together with the simulation results and any measurement data to ensure that simulations are easy to reproduce. Offline and online simulations can also be compared just as easily.

ModelDesk Processing

ModelDesk Processing is an integrated parameterization workflow for ASM. With ModelDesk Processing, users can now include initial data, such as measurements, functions and settings, and process it into parameters optimized for simulation models.

Engine Parameterization

Elementary engine configurations, such as the number of cylinders, piston displacement and injection maps, can be performed on-screen with just a couple of clicks.

Road Generator

The Road Generator is the graphical user interface for defining road networks and sophisticated road features.

Scenario Editor

The Scenario Editor is the graphical user interface for very flexible and easy traffic scenario definition.

Electric Components Parameterization

All the modeled electric components of the ASM Electric Components model are displayed graphically in ModelDesk for convenient parameterization.

Software-in-the loop (SIL) testing

ModelDesk is part of the dSPACE SIL testing solution for PC- and cloud-based simulation.
