Vehicle Reference Applications

Ride and handling analysis, chassis controls development, ADAS and AD testing

Vehicle Dynamics Blockset™ provides fully assembled reference applications of vehicle models running driving maneuvers in a 3D environment that is integrated with Simulink®. You can create your own versions of the reference applications, providing a framework to test that your vehicle meets the design requirements under normal and extreme driving conditions. Specifically, use the reference applications to:

  • Analyze ride and handling and develop chassis controls. To perform vehicle studies, including yaw stability, understeer and oversteer, and lateral acceleration limits, start with the maneuver reference applications.

  • Test advanced driver assist systems (ADAS) and automated driving (AD) perception, planning, and control software, including active safety. To configure the 3D environment for ADAS/AD testing, start with the scene interrogation reference application.
