VEOS is a PC-based simulation platform for electronic control unit (ECU) software validation in many development stages. It lets you simulate a multitude of different models – from function models to networks of virtual ECUs, bus systems, and vehicle models – even in early phases of development.
Co-simulation with VEOS; QEMU integration into VEOS simulation
VEOS is now available for Linux operating systems (including build system and simulation).
You can integrate Linux-based virtual ECUs with adaptive applications into offline simulations with VEOS on both Windows and Linux operating systems. This allows you to test ADAS/AD functions in a virtual environment.
To increase their testing capabilities, provide faster time to market, and enable development and validation of software-defined vehicles (SDV), General Motors has decided to create a completely virtual environment, which can provide a test interface similar to a physical test system. General Motors is working jointly with dSPACE and KPIT to realize a completely virtual, cloud-capable, scalable development and integration testing environment.
Of particular importance as a basis for new vehicle development is the powertrain with its corresponding ECUs. To develop and validate the powertrain, Toyota has strongly promoted the introduction of model-based development (MBD) and relies on the early use of simulation in the development process. At Toyota, SIL simulation is performed with VEOS.
The higher the number of people involved in the development of ECU software, the more important it is to test the individual components early and realistically. BMW has chosen dSPACE VEOS as their central, PC-based simulation platform.
The tool is suitable to be used in safety-related development projects according to ISO 26262:2018 for any automotive safety integrity level (ASIL).
dSPACE VEOS is a PC-based simulation platform that promotes SIL testing for the development of electronic control units (ECUs):
VEOS runs on standard PCs, which gives function developers, software architects, and ECU testers a variety of valuable options for SIL testing during the early project phases:
|Tool chain integration
Off-the-shelf integration into tool chains:
Supported Standards and Protocols
VEOS offers a variety of functions to simulate heterogeneous models:
With VEOS your bus simulation needs are covered:
Compliance with FMI ensures that models created in various modeling tools can be exported as Functional Mock-up Units (FMUs) and that these FMUs can readily be integrated in VEOS-based virtual validation projects. In such projects, FMUs can be integrated together with other FMUs, virtual ECUs (V-ECUs), and Simulink® models. The user workflow for importing and connecting FMUs to other model interfaces is identical for all supported model types. Variable and parameter access during simulation is supported by ControlDesk, AutomationDesk, and XIL API.
