Vehicle-in-the-loop testing of safety-critical ADAS functions
Real vehicle tests are still an important part of the optimization and validation process of ECU features. Not only do they cover the complete vehicle and ECU network, but they also include the driver and their driving experience during these tests. However, for testing ADAS/AD (advanced driver assistance systems/autonomous driving) features, these real vehicle tests become more and more complex. To reduce the effort of creating this real environment, a simulated environment is used instead. This is achieved by measuring the real vehicle movements and feeding them into a virtual clone simulated on a real-time system.
