dSPACE and MdynamiX Intensify Their Collaboration

MdynamiX and dSPACE have entered a cooperation that intensifies their already constructive collaboration in developing and testing electric steering systems. To this end, the renowned steering system model of Professor Peter E. Pfeffer, CEO of MdynamiX, was integrated into the dSPACE Automotive Simulation Model (ASM) tool suite. Vehicle developers now benefit from a powerful tool chain for adjusting vehicle dynamics and steering behavior. The seamless integration makes the new tool chain ideal for a continuous development process, starting with model-based design (MBD), to software-in-the-loop (SIL) simulation, up to hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulation with a real ECU.

The established tools MXsteeringdesigner and MXevaluation as well as the MdynamiX know-how are now available on dSPACE platforms. Therefore, fundamental work steps, such as the steering system characterization and parameter optimization of the steering models, can be markedly simplified. For example, MXsteeringdesigner can automatically transfer parameters of a steering system model from a dSPACE steering test bench to dSPACE ModelDesk. With MXevaluation, objective parameters can be determined from vehicle data measurements and simulations and thus used for the calibration of electronic control units or the optimization of the steering feel.
