Achieving efficient energy management for the entire Audi vehicle fleet is a cross-department challenge. Many of the questions relating to analysis and optimization can only be answered with the use of simulation.
The number of different control unit functions and their interactions is continuously increasing. With a customized DYNA4 simluation environment Audi analyzes the effect of faulty input signals on the complete vehicle.
High-end hardware-in-the-Loop systems (HiLs) with a network of all ECUs relevant to the vehicle dynamics allow the virtual assessment of vehicle dynamics characteristics for a wide range of variants.
TESIS DYNAware and Audi have developed a simulation-based, standardized process that provides cost efficient validation of ECUs for a diverse range of potential vehicle configurations.
With DYNA4, the MBS vehicle model can be used comprehensively for the development of electronic units - from function development to automatic test drives on a PC or HiL.
VW analyses and evaluates K&C measurements in a software-based way to automatize the comparison of the driving dynamics of competitors and own vehicles.
To optimize the development process, Ford the Suspension Toolbox to completely parameterize suspension models from K&C test rig measurements in an automated fashion.
