In hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) tests, direct real-time access from the HIL simulator to the unit under test is necessary to be able to synchronously measure and adjust internal electronic control unit (ECU) variables.
XIL cross tests carried out at dSPACE GmbH in Paderborn on July 13 and 14, 2016 demonstrated a good interoperability of test tools and test benches using XIL API interfaces. Volkswagen AG, carts GmbH/MicroNova AG, embeddeers GmbH, National Instruments GmbH, TraceTronic GmbH, and Vector Informatik GmbH joined dSPACE in this worthwhile event.
Watch a video on how to use hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulation to test-drive the steering behavior of a vehicle realistically under laboratory conditions with a highly dynamic mechatronic test bench. Such a test bench lets manufacturers efficiently test and optimize the behavior, feel and function of new steering systems even in early development phases.
