ECU Testing and Verification using Hardware-in the-Loop 2006-01-1444
This paper discusses the Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) system based test facility at TATA Motors used for engine controller testing. This test platform was built to test embedded software and the control units for vehicle programs. The platform is also targeted at other applications such as development of new control algorithms, and for training engineers. The HIL system was set up using Commercial Off-the-Shelf (COTS) components and Emmeskay's Model based Vehicle Engineering (MoVE) architecture and component models in Simulink®. The system was set-up and validated in a short duration using a sequence of well-defined phases.
