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

Ideal platform for large-scale HILS systems and integrated HILS systems

Vehicle systems are becoming more complex due to vehicle electrification, ADAS, and automated driving. For control development/verification, HILS corresponding to large-scale operations that use complex operations and third-party modeling tools for each functionality is needed. For example powertrain HILS (engine, transmission, battery, etc.)  and Body Integrated HILS (such as system HILS/vehicle environment/weather environment/steering stability) working as one system is required.

A & D provides a highly scalable HILS platform for linking multiple CPUs and multiple chassis.

The control I/O board is equipped with fail circuits on-board, and no external board is required for fault simulation.

All I/O boards are equipped with a self-diagnostics function as a standard. If a problem occurs during the self-diagnostics test, the user can isolate the cause. It can also be used for pre-use inspection.

The system has an operation time monitor function and can monitor software operation time and power-on time. It can be used to manage the HILS equipment operation time.
