Engineers working on complex vehicle systems, such as engine development and calibration, face tough real-world challenges on a daily basis. What they need is the ability to operate a low-cost virtual test bench using closed loop interaction between the ECU, engine, and aftertreatment model. A turnkey mobile solution is fast to set up, easy to handle, and offers superior data repeatability that can save both time and costs. Connected to a real-time processing ECU through a series of sophisticated software and hardware interfaces, it can be used for both calibration and optimization. This webcast examines the advantages of such systems and takes a look at MicroHiL, a simpler virtual test bench that offers the benefits of hardware-in-the-loop simulation systems. It also discusses how to maximize efficiency and minimize development time and resources. Webcast attendees will be invited to interact with the experts during the program's live Q&A segment.
