A hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulation of an advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) for adaptive front lighting was coupled to a driving simulator with a reconfigurable motion platform and a high-performance visualization system to integrate human drivers into the closed control loop. This combination leads to a driver-in-the-loop (DIL) simulation. In contrast to vehicle control systems, for which HIL simulations are sufficient to ensure correct functionalities, ADA systems require such a DIL approach because they support human drivers rather than directly taking action in vehicle stabilization. With DIL simulation, it is possible to ensure that an ADA system is functioning correctly and test its acceptance by the human driver on a simulator during the development phase.
