Simulations are at the heart of modern validation of electronic control unit (ECU) software, especially for very complex applications such as advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous driving (AD).
VEOS is a PC-based simulation platform for ECU software validation in many development stages. It lets you simulate a multitude of different models – from function models to networks of virtual ECUs, bus systems and vehicle models – even in early phases of development.
The VEOS simulation platform provides reliable results independently of the simulation hardware, and it can be used on different PC operating systems as well as in cloud infrastructures.
VEOS is now available for Linux operating systems.
You can now operate VEOS from the command line on Windows and Linux operating systems. This facilitates automated workflows where COM automation is not available, for example, in continuous integration scenarios.
You can integrate Linux-based virtual ECUs with adaptive applications into offline simulations with VEOS on both Windows and Linux operating systems. This allows you to test ADAS/AD functions in a virtual environment.
This dSPACE webinar shows you how to benefit from the features of the Functional Mock-up Interface (FMI) with the dSPACE tool chain.
The higher the number of people involved in the development of ECU software, the more important it is to test the individual components early and realistically. BMW has chosen dSPACE VEOS as their central, PC-based simulation platform.
The Ford Motor Company needed a tool chain that on the one hand accelerates the development process to meet customers’ expectations and on the other hand reduces the time and effort required by new adopters to familiarize with its methods. With the dSPACE virtual validation tool chain, they found both.
As customer expectations rise and Euro NCAP requirements get tougher, the cost of developing advanced driver assistance systems threatens to become unmanageable. dSPACE offers the solution: a well-coordinated tool chain for function development, virtual validation and hardware-in-the loop simulation.
dSPACE VEOS is a PC-based simulation platform that promotes SIL testing for the development of electronic control units (ECUs):
VEOS runs on standard PCs, which gives function developers, software architects, and ECU testers a variety of valuable options for SIL testing during the early project phases:

Supported Standards and Protocols
Compliance with FMI ensures that models created in various modeling tools can be exported as Functional Mock-up Units (FMUs) and that these FMUs can readily be integrated in VEOS-based virtual validation projects. In such projects, FMUs can be integrated together with other FMUs, virtual ECUs (V-ECUs), and Simulink® models. The user workflow for importing and connecting FMUs to other model interfaces is identical for all supported model types. Variable and parameter access during simulation is supported by ControlDesk, AutomationDesk and XIL API.
dSPACE supports the open FMI standard for an easy integration of simulation models from various sources.Support of Multisensor Applications
VEOS supports bidirectional, low-latency communication with RTMaps, the component-based software development and execution environment from Intempora.
