The AVL Real-Life Testing framework provides a bridge between simulation and reality. It enables users to develop and optimize vehicle subsystems long before their first use on the road.
AVL InMotion™, a part of this framework, lets users:
AVL InMotion, powered by CarMaker, is based on a complete virtual vehicle environment (VVE). The VVE consists of detailed and precise models, which together simulate the complete dynamics of a driving vehicle. The driving tests with AVL InMotion can be performed as on a real test track. The virtual vehicle carries out all important driving maneuvers and is controlled by a virtual driver who is able to learn the limits of the vehicle the way a real test driver would. The VVE can be used as an open integration platform to which users can connect their own tools and models. All models are fully integrated in Simulink®, so users can modify or replace them with their own Simulink models—for example, a drivetrain or steering system model. Physical hardware components, such as single ECUs or complete lab cars, can also be integrated.
