SAE International Webcast Studies Virtual Test Environments for Vehicle Systems

WARRENDALE, Pa., March 7, 2013 -  A new webcast from SAE International’s Automotive Engineering International (AEI) magazine explores virtual testing environments for complex vehicle systems.

How to Reduce Your Development Time Using a Virtual Test Environment” will air Wednesday, March 20, 2013, at Noon (EDT).

Engineers who are working on complex vehicle systems, such as engine development and calibration, face tough real-world challenges on a daily basis. They need the ability to operate a low-cost virtual test bench using closed loop interaction between the ECU, engine, and aftertreatment model. A turnkey mobile solution is fast to set up, easy to handle, and offers superior data repeatability that can save both time and costs. Connected to a real-time processing ECU through a series of sophisticated software and hardware interfaces, it can be used for both calibration and optimization.

During this free, interactive, 60-minute webcast, our expert participants will present the advantages of such systems and take a look at MicroHiL, a simpler virtual test bench that offers the benefits of hardware-in-the-loop simulation systems.

Attendees will be invited to interact with the speakers during the program’s live Q&A segment. Participation is FREE with registration.

Industry expert participants will include:


- Harsha Nanjundaswamy, Manager, Light-Duty Diesel Engine Development and Controls, FEV Inc.


- John Zelasko, Key Account Manager, FEV Inc.

Moderator will be Lisa Arrigo, Custom Electronic Products Editor, SAE International.

The webcast is hosted by AEI and sponsored by FEV. To learn more about “How to Reduce Your Development Time Using a Virtual Test Environment,” click here. To find the start time in a different time zone, click here.
