The functionality and robustness of the algorithms and embedded software are essential for chassis systems. To accelerate development and ensure system robustness, engineers use Model-Based Design to develop chassis controls, design and verify embedded software, and test system integration in simulation.
Develop Chassis Control Algorithms
Brake, steering, and suspension controllers are integral parts of both passive and active safety systems. Engineers use Model-Based Design to prototype chassis control algorithms and verify the algorithms in closed-loop simulation with vehicle dynamics models before generating and verifying the production embedded software.
Verify the Integration Between Chassis Control and Advanced Driver Assistance Systems
Engineers build system models that include sensing and control algorithms, vehicle dynamics, driver behavior, road courses, traffic situations, and environmental conditions. These multidomain models enable engineers to test the interaction between sensing algorithms and control logic in simulation. They can verify system behavior for conditions too time consuming or risky to test on the road and research emerging technologies.
