dSPACE® Simulator® enables you to test new electronic control units (ECUs) and software largely in a virtual environment, without real vehicles or prototypes. Such tests are very systematic and completely safe, even when critical thresholds are exceeded, while reproducing ECU errors whenever and however required. The tight integration of dSPACE software and MATLAB and Simulink provides a powerful development environment. After developing a simulation model in Simulink, you can test it with ControlDesk's Simulink Interface and then in real time on dSPACE Simulator--with the same layouts, test scripts, and parameter sets. You can seamlessly transition your Simulink block diagram to dSPACE Simulator hardware via code generated from Simulink Coder and dSPACE Real-Time Interface.
dSPACE offers open Simulink models for HIL simulation that give life to your dSPACE Simulator. The Automotive Simulation Models (ASMs) are complete and independent models that support all the relevant phases of Model-Based Design. They are available for standard automotive applications including diesel engine, gasoline engine, and vehicle dynamics. You can also use your own simulation models or third-party models, such as those from TESIS DYNAware, a dSPACE partner.
