OEMs for the commercial off-highway industry can simulate complete virtual vehicles and carry out electronic control unit (ECU) testing using a combination of dSPACE ASM simulation models with a dSPACE simulator. Models feature real-time simulation of systems including engines and vehicle dynamics as well as brake hydraulics, electrical systems, exhaust systems, traffic, and trailer. The technology manages complex large vehicle networks to create a virtual truck, bus, or other vehicle. ASMs are typically used on a simulator for hardware-in-the-loop testing of ECUs or during the design phase of controller algorithms. Script-based testing improves reproducibility for additional tests, while the ability to conduct regression testing on multiple ECUs across distributed functions with interchanging variants simplifies development. All blocks in the models are visible, making it easier to add or replace components or to expand a single model; roads and driving maneuvers also can be created.
