Description of how to solve modern Body and Chassis testing challenges using more hardware-in-the-loop simulation in multiple domains and even use FPGA-based simulation for sensors, actuators and power electronics.
As vehicles become increasingly automated, connected, and electrified, their body and chassis systems are being transformed to maintain interfunctionality and meet users’ changing demands.
The complexity and number of electronic control units (ECUs) within vehicles continue to grow—from active suspension, brake by wire, and emergency steering, to seat control and rearview mirror ECUs integrated with infotainment systems, to
passive safety systems like airbags or seat belts.
Because of this, body and chassis components are expected to help achieve Vision Zero: zero emissions, zero collisions, zero congestion.
They are the tools that will help us improve vehicle safety, and how we test them is crucial to achieving the Vision Zero goal faster.
