Mechanical Simulation Delivers Human-Hardware-in-the-Loop Driving Simulator to Geely Automobile

ANN ARBOR, Mich., December 5, 2013 - Mechanical Simulation has created a Human-Hardware-in-the-Loop driving simulator for Geely Automobile, a large automotive manufacturer based in Zhejiang Hangzhou, China.

The system includes the latest BOSCH brake controller with functions: ABS (Anti-lock Braking System), ESC (Electronic Stability Control), TCS (Traction Control System), EBD (Electronic Brake-force Distribution), and BMCS (tire Blowout Monitor and Control System). It also includes a brake hydraulic system, brake boost and vacuum system, brake calipers, rotors, pads, and a car shifter and instrument cluster unit.

The simulator features a CarSim RT (real time) system with multiple monitors. It is fitted with a high-precision torque feedback steering wheel, smart wheel speed signal (BOSCH DF11i) generator and a Failure Injection Unit (FIU). The brake input can be set as pedal travel input or pedal force input.

The new system also works with an existing Mechanical Simulation driving simulator at Geely that includes a hexapod motion platform. When connected, the hexapod system includes the HIL components in the driving experience. Both systems are controlled by the simulation software CarSim for Driving Simulators.

Some of the system applications are: programmable test of ABS/ESC/TCS/EBD/BMCS, human drive to test ABS/ESC/TCS/EBD/BMCS, failure injection test, and vehicle configuration test. For more information, contact Dr. Jin Hu at jhu@carsim.com.
