Hardware-in-loop (HIL) simulation is a technique for validating a control algorithm – running on an intended target controller – by creating a virtual real-time environment that represents the physical system to control. HIL helps to test the behavior of your control algorithms without physical prototypes. It reduces testing hardware cost, allows faster iterations, and mitigates the risk of hardware failure.

In this webinar, we will show you how to leverage HIL simulation using a Speedgoat target computer to streamline your development process and achieve reliable, high-quality results.


  • What is HIL testing and how does it work?​
  • HIL simulation and testing with MATLAB & Simulink​
  • How to perform HIL testing with Speedgoat target hardware
