ControlDesk is the dSPACE experiment software for seamless ECU development. It performs all the necessary tasks and gives you a single working environment, from the start of experimentation right to the end.
New cost-effective product version focused on working with bus systems: the Bus Navigator (stand-alone).
The interoperability of ASAM XIL API-compliant products, such as ControlDesk, is checked on a regular basis. For this purpose, major vendors of development tools for automotive applications meet with dSPACE regularly to carry out so-called cross tests on their products. During these tests, they connect their test tools to third-party test benches to evaluate if their test software is able to communicate with test hardware from other manufacturers without issues.
Previous attempts at wedge clutches in automatic transmissions often failed because of unpleasant shift jerking. Researchers from Shanghai Jiao Tong University are working on solving this problem through a precisely controlled electric motor. The validation is based on hardware and software tools by dSPACE.

ControlDesk can be used for tasks like these:
ControlDesk unites functionalities that often require several specialized tools. It provides access to simulation platforms as well as to connected bus systems and can perform measurement, calibration and diagnostics on ECUs, e.g., via standardized ASAM interfaces.
Its flexible modular structure provides high scalability to meet the requirements of specific application cases. This gives you clear advantages in terms of handling, the amount of training needed, the required computing power, and costs.
