“ROADRUNNER”-Real-time simulation in anti-lock brake system development 950758
The simulation system “Roadrunner” has the ability to compute 3-dimensional vehicle behavior during simulated ABS-stops or Traction Control (TC) operation on a PC based test rig system. This can be done in real-time mode with fast DSP (digital signal processor) boards and an ABS/TC-ECU as a ‘Hardware-in-the-loop’ device (HIL) or off-line (non-real-time), on the PC only. In the off-line-mode, the PC additionally performs the ABS/TC control algorithms.
The simulated system includes model equations for chassis and wheel movement, hydraulics and road to tire interactions. A driver model enables the reproduction of standard steering maneuvers.
