Claytex are proud for our second year selection as one of the ‘Top 10 Exhibitors’ of the Low Carbon Vehicle Show in 2016.
At the LCV 2016, Claytex showcased how rFpro and Dymola can be used to support the development of ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) and autonomous cars. We had a driving simulator at our stand that uses a Dymola vehicle model and rFpro demonstrating this capability. Using rFpro to provide the virtual test environment we can support driver-in-the-loop and provide data feeds to the array of sensors (cameras, LiDAR, radar and ultrasound) all based off the same high-fidelity track model.
Claytex also presented as part of the ‘Digital Engineering, Modelling and Simulation’ session.
The presentation looked at how we can achieve virtual testing of the complete vehicle system using rFpro to provide the virtual test environment, Dymola to model the vehicle systems and we also covered how the control systems can be incorporated using SiL and/or HiL environments.
Models created in Dymola are built up using physical models which means they are able to predict the behaviour of the system which, in turn, means they can be used earlier in the design process. It’s not necessary to wait for test data to be available to start using simulation.
The use of rFpro as a virtual test environment allows engineers to carry out testing even when a vehicle is not available and also allows the conditions to be 100% repeatable whilst maintaining the human in the loop. rFpro is a scalable solution supporting a single PC configuration through to full motion platforms.
