More and more, life cycle tests on vehicles and vehicle components are being moved forward to the simulation phase, rather than performing later hardware tests. Reliable information is needed for designing component strength, and this includes a precise knowledge of customer behavior. To obtain this information, the Institut für Fahrzeugtechnik (Institute of Automotive Engineering, IAE) at the Technische Universität Braunschweig, Germany, is using dSPACE MicroAutoBox to capture driver actions and driving environment parameters. Statistics derived from this measurement data make it possible to simulate customer-imposed stress at an early development stage.
