Mechanical Simulation Releases CarSim, TruckSim, and BikeSim 2016

ANN ARBOR, Mich., December 15, 2015 - Mechanical Simulation Corporation is proud to announce the release of CarSim 2016, TruckSim 2016, and BikeSim 2016; vehicle dynamics simulation software which features improvements for both new and existing users.

Some highlights of the latest releases include:

Road Building and GPS
1. New GUI screens were added to build roads and paths with segments that can be straight, circular arcs, clothoid spirals, or X-Y tables.
2. GUI screens for X-Y tables include an option to import GPS data. GPS data files can be obtained on-line from a new page on the CarSim web site: https://atlas.carsim.com.
3. Multiple 3D road surfaces are connected with built-in boundaries using four new GUI screens. Tires and moving objects automatically change surfaces when they cross boundaries.

Vehicle Models
4. The steering system model was rewritten internally to support options for replacing and/or disabling parts of the model with external components.
5. The twist-beam suspension model has been extended with six new GUI screens to account for the many compliance conditions that occur in the K&C tests and on the road.

ADAS Sensors (Optional) and Moving Objects
6. ADAS Sensor detections include five more variables; the GUI screens for sensors and moving objects have been extended; dashboard alerts are included; many ADAS examples were added.
7. VS Visualizer supports visual sensors with shared memory regions, where each pixel has an RGB value, or distance value, or vector normal information. These sensors use the full 3D shape, texture, and lighting information for the entire scene, including the
ground and all objects.

Interfaces to Other Software
8. Export of output variables to Excel and MATLAB has been greatly simplified: users can drag and drop from VS Visualizer, or set up new runs to write Excel/MATLAB files from within the GUI.
9. VS Visualizer supports VS Results Analysis Package (VSRAP) files with all animator and video information from a run. Colleagues without CarSim can now view CarSim results.
10. A new interface called VS STI Interface (VS version of Standard Tire Interface) supports external tire models (e.g., TASS MF-Tyre/MF-Swift, COSIN F-Tire). Users can now connect custom tire models using C source code provided with CarSim 2016.
11. CarSim 2016 works with TASS MF-Tyre/MF-Swift 7.0, released in November 2015 for Windows and dSPACE DS1006. This is the first commercial version of MF-Tyre that runs on a dSPACE RT system, and it is available only for CarSim RT.
12. CarSim 2016 supports the Functional Mock-up Interface (FMI) in co-simulation mode for FMI 1.0 and 2.0. It has modes for a completely self-contained Functional Mock-up Unit (FMU), or an FMU that handles input and output involving external files.
