RDE+ VIRTUAL - Virtual Vehicle Development

RDE+ VIRTUAL

This application links a plethora of virtual tools to HORIBA’s portfolio of hardware and test automation software.

This model-based approach allows ‘front-loading’ and more accurate and robust target setting within the early phases of a product development program. Virtual environments and vehicles can be used to follow a scenario-based development methodology. By linking environment and vehicle simulation to HORIBA test automation software, RDE+ enables development and validation using hardware-in-the-loop (HiL) systems to optimize emissions for real and virtual RDE scenarios. 

Use of virtual vehicles and environments for validation eliminates the need for hardware and expensive environmental road testing, leading to increased confidence in the design. This allows safer and earlier decisions to be made in the vehicle development programme, resulting in huge time and cost savings.

BENEFITS

Time and Cost Savings from Program Front-Loading

  • Early development and optimization of prototype propulsion and vehicles
  • Early data to support advanced design freeze
  • Reduction in prototype hardware required
     

Advantages of Scenario-Based Development

  • Early program running of scenarios for future legislation
  • Identification of worst-case RDE scenarios for robust validation
     

Model-Based Development–Virtual Calibration

  • Explore more of the design space, more effectively
  • Rapid optimization based on accurate response measurements
  • Rapid optimization of control systems

RELIABILITY OF THE AUTOMATED LAB

RDE+ POWER - Powertrain Testing

Accuracy and Repeatability

Accurate and repeatable measurement of the effects of RDE scenarios enables rapid and robust power system development and calibration optimization with very low margins of error.

Acceleration of Development and Validation

Automated and remote-operating systems deliver faster and more productive testing with higher efficiency and lower operational costs and resources.

EMULATION OF THE REAL WORLD

RDE+ POWER - Multi-Functional Dynamic Altitude Simulator

Delivering the Right Atmosphere

The HORIBA Multi-Functional Dynamic Altitude Simulator (MEDAS) system instantaneously supplies the correct atmospheric conditions to the power system.

Complete RDE Emulation

Combining MEDAS with HORIBA DYNAS power system dynamometers and STARS controllers, complete RDE road tests from the real or virtual worlds can be accurately emulated.

DEVELOPMENT IN THE VIRTUAL WORLD

RDE+ VIRTUAL - IPG CarMaker

Creation of the Virtual World

Real or virtually generated RDE tests and scenarios can be modelled, including environment, traffic and driver behavior.

Digital Twin Vehicle

Ego vehicle model can be driven in the Virtual World to rapidly determine worse-case RDE scenarios and the impact of system optimization of RDE attributes.

CONNECTING REAL AND VIRTUAL WORLDS

RDE+ VIRTUAL - Engine Lab

Hardware-in-the-Loop (HiL)

Connecting hardware (engines, powertrain, e-machines) to the virtual domain via HORIBA Test Automation software delivers tangible measurements from simulated scenarios.

Model-in-the-Loop (MiL)

Incorporating accurate attribute response models within the virtual domain enables office-based optimization of power system attributes and calibrations. DE replication.
