A new proof-of-concept test bench for developing and validating mechatronic chassis systems was presented at Automotive Testing Expo Europe 2006 by MTS Systems Corporation. The Mechatronic Development and Validation (MDV) test bench – jointly developed by MTS and dSPACE – consists of a mechanical rig for testing semi-active suspensions and a dSPACE Simulator for real-time vehicle dynamics simulation. This combination of a real test rig and real-time simulation shifts test tasks from the track to the laboratory. Beside track test savings it provides new test capabilities in early development phases.
