Hardware-in-the-loop simulators from IPG with 10-fold performance
IPG Automotive has sped up the hardware platform of the CarMaker/HIL simulators again. An architecture change in the area of computer technology and a new real-time system permit an enormous computing power from the hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) test benches under hard real-time conditions. With these improvements, the vehicle dynamics specialist establishes the CarMaker/HIL systems knowing that the trend is for simulation models to become increasingly complex and detailed in the future.
Cooperation between IPG Automotive GmbH and AVL List GmbH enables hardware-in-the-loop tests on dynamic motor and drivetrain test benches from AVL.
Thanks to its architecture, CarMaker is more and more appreciated as an open integration platform for models and tools from customers and partners. At Vehicle Dynamics Expo 2007, IPG will present the following highlights...
CarMaker, the vehicle dynamics software for virtual test driving from IPG Automotive now also provides the acquisition of internal ECU variables at hardware-in-the-loop test benches with CCP and XCP.
Thanks to the intensive co-operation between IPG Automotive and Sherpa Engineering the complete model library Sherpa-Engine can now be integrated into the vehicle dynamics software, CarMaker. The integration opens up new possibilities for the model based development and test of controllers for both the vehicle and motor.
