Real-time Simulations and HiL

Accelerate your development process and prepare for subjective assessment on the driving simulator

Real-time simulations allow engineers to evaluate design changes and quickly make corresponding decisionsThousands of simulations can be performed in just a few hours and design-of-Experiments and optimization loops help engineers to make critical decisions in a fraction of the time that was needed even just a few years ago.

Real-time simulations play an important role in providing critical, real-time feedback to engineers and represent the foundation for vehicle and environment models for driving simulators applications. Driving simulators, and the subjective experience they allow, become increasingly important as you progress in the development cycle. 
Real-time models are also the foundation of hardware-in-the-loop analyses where a hardware component (e.g. steering system, damper, brake, camera, radar or entire engine) interacts with the virtual vehicle model that runs on a hard real-time computer.

Functional tests and fault injection analyses can be performed on the real component but in a safe environment and in the absence of a complete physical prototype.
VI-grade currently offers a series of solutions dedicated to HiL virtual testing, all based on AutoHawk, VI-grade's HiL solution powered by Concurrent Real-Time for automotive applications.

This technology allows to address virtual/physical testing of any kind of HiL component, in a variety of use cases in different application fields, such as:

This document spotlights how, thanks to the usage of HiL simulations, automotive OEMs and suppliers are able to gain valuable insight into vehicle development far earlier in the development process vs waiting for the first physical prototype or mule. HiL enables to estimate the impact of changes made to the design ‘virtually’, so that when the first physical prototype does appear, it can already reflect the many design iterations which were performed virtually.
