Introducing AutoHawk, a flexible HiL platform

Reports find that the HiL market is gaining momentum, particularly due to ADAS vehicles. To address this market, VI-grade introduces AutoHawk, a highly configurable HiL solution for automotive applications based on the IHawk real-time hardware (including I/O cards), on the RedHawk real-time OS and software from Concurrent Real-Time as well as on real-time software from VI-grade or 3rd party. In the same configuration, AutoHawk can work as a stand-alone Linux-based high-power computer, as a HiL system, in combination with a driving simulator or on a real vehicle. The AutoHawk HiL platform can be used across the entire product development cycle.
