To integrate components into a hybrid vehicle drivetrain, extensive modification to the electronic and mechanical systems is required in order to ensure the global optimization of all systems by a hybrid drive strategy. MAGNA STEYR and its cooperation partners integrated the new hybrid components in a production vehicle and implemented a control system using a dSPACE prototyping system (MicroAutoBox plus RapidPro). The hybrid demo vehicle HySUV (Mercedes M-class) with a dSPACE prototyping system as the central drivetrain control makes the hybrid drive a reality. MAGNA STEYR and its partners use the demo vehicle as a platform for further optimization of driving behavior, consumption, and emissions.
