dSpace is offering a realistic early-simulation solution with its new dSpace Offline Simulator that can simulate virtual ECUs (electronic control units) on a PC. The Offline Simulator interacts closely with dSpace products for ECU development and testing: ControlDesk Next Generation and AutomationDesk, giving users a complete tool chain. Software architects can perform consistency tests, check the plausibility of interfaces, and verify task scheduling early on. As a result, ECU functionality can be verified before the first ECU prototypes are available. The vehicle and component models, which are usually created with Simulink and used as environment models during offline simulation, can be reused in later development phases. The same applies to the interactive experiment layouts created with ControlDesk Next Generation and to the software verification tests. Moreover, tests can be designed on a PC and then validated and optimized by offline simulation to save testing time on a hardware-in-the-loop simulator.
