Whole motorcycle-in-the-loop for control logics best tuning and verification
Control logics on board motorcycles are increasing in number and complexity. It follows that testing for correct response verification on proving grounds and/or on public roads 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 work together, with real multiphysical-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 correspondingly reduced risks/money/time.
