Vehicle data and parameters may be available in different formats, e.g. axle geometries from design drawings, vehicle and wheel suspensions from multibody simulation tools, vehicle parameters from vehicle dynamics simulation tools, etc. dSPACE offers a variety of converters to automatically transfer and validate this data in the ASM simulation, so that the full functionality of the dSPACE tool chain can be used.
With the CarSim® Converter, vehicle parameterizations from the vehicle dynamics tool CarSim can be automatically imported and validated in ASM, so that the full ASM functionality can be used based on existing CarSim parameterizations.
The ADAMS Converter offers the possibility to transfer vehicle models from the multi-body simulation tool ADAMS/Car® into ASM vehicle models. For this purpose, the parameters are automatically transferred to ASM and validated on the basis of measurements. The ADAMS Converter is part of the product ASM Vehicle Dynamics.
With the CarMaker Converter, vehicle parameterizations from the vehicle dynamics tool CarMaker® can be automatically imported and validated in ASM, so that the full ASM functionality can be used based on existing CarMaker parameterizations.
ASM KnC (Kinematics and Compliance) is a virtual test bench for the design and simulation of wheel suspensions. Users are thus able to virtually test and optimize suspensions for numerous vehicle variants and driving maneuvers.
Certified According to ISO 26262
ASM Vehicle Dynamics Converter was certified by TÜV SÜD according to ISO 26262 for safety-relevant systems in motor vehicles. The tool is thus suitable to be used in safety-related development projects according to ISO 26262:2018 for any automotive safety integrity level (ASIL).
This means: Vehicle manufacturers and suppliers can exclude ASM Vehicle Dynamics Converter from the ISO 26262 qualification of their entire processes and can concentrate on proving the functional safety of their own process chains.
