Whole motorcycle in-the-loop for control logics best tuning and verification
On board motorcycles’ control logics are arising in number and complexity. It follows that testing on proving ground and/or on public roads for correct response verification becomes dangerous, difficult and time consuming. The possibility of doing most of the work indoors, in safe and repeatable conditions, exploiting the HIL approach is becoming popular. But still some limitations occur, in particular when attempting to make multiple control logics working together, with real multi-physical systems in the loop. The innovative whole motorcycle in the simulation loop empowers the investigation capability and allows a considerable reduction of on-road tests, with less risks/money/time.
