Hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulation, in which a real electronic control unit runs in a closed loop with a simulated environment in order to validate functions, has been an established method in the development process for vehicle control systems for many years. However, it is coming up against its limits with the advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) now increasingly installed in vehicles, because they are judged not only by purely functional ECU software tests but also by another important criterion:
how they affect and interact with the driver. Lane keeping assistants, adaptive headlamp control systems and Car2x applications are some examples.
