Software-in-the-Loop at the junction of software development and drivability calibration
KeywordsSoftware Development Control Unit Engine Speed Control Logic Engine Model
Different causes lead to a reduction of testing vehicles in absolute numbers or in relation to a broadening product portfolio. At the same time development cycles get shorter or have to tackle more complexity in the same time frame. In drivability calibration, the usage of powertrain test benches is a solution to this dilemma. This strategy, commonly referred to as “road-2-rig”, can be thought one step further: Transferring all components to a simulation-only environment and extending the approach to a “road-2-rig-2-simulation” strategy. The key question is availability and quality of models of the key components.
