HELIOS –  REAL-TIME SIMULATION AND HARDWARE-IN-THE-LOOP System

HELIOS is a high-performance Hardware-in-the-loop system that is ideal for applications such as ECU-in-the-loop and Engine-in-the-loop. It is also ideal for Rapid Control Prototyping projects. The open and configurable system architecture supports high performance CPUs with multiple cores as well as HyperTransport, PCI Express and conventional PCI interconnections. Its easily programmed using MATLAB/Simulink® models.

  • Can be scaled based on ECU testing needs (multi node capability)
  • Direct connection of I/O interface to CPU
  • Real-time application development environment with MATLAB/Simulink.
  • Open system.
  • Easy system setup and configuration
  • Model division among CPU cores and parallel processing.
