Vehicle dynamic tests

  • 21-Jun-2010 02:00 EDT

UN/ECE regulation 13-H stipulates electronic stability (ESP) systems must be installed in future commercial vehicles to improve safety in road traffic and permits the use of simulation models to verify functionality of the systems. dSPACE's simulation model ASM Truck provides the features required for testing and validating ESP functions for directional stabilization and rollover protection. Activities move from the road to the simulation system, reducing the workload in testing different vehicle commercial variants. With ASM Trailer, the open MATLAB/Simulink model can simulate a vehicle with a trailer. Models contain up to 35° of freedom in multibody dynamics and up to 25° in the powertrain with up to eight steerable axles, and the configuration can be modified during run time without manipulation. ASM Truck provides a solution that anticipates the next regulations, which will cover lane keeping assistance and emergency braking.

Performance, reliability, and safety assessments performed using predictive capability for electromechanical systems are on the rise, yet no standard exists in the truck and off-highway engineering design industry for representing the degree to which a model has been validated. Such a standard can enable engineers and managers with a tool to assess the maturity of predictive capability itself.
