Dyno-in-the-Loop: An Innovative Hardware-in-the-Loop Development and Testing Platform for Emerging Mobility Technologies
Today’s transportation is quickly transforming with the advent of shared-mobility, vehicle electrification, connected vehicle technology, and vehicle automation. These technologies will not only affect our safety and mobility, but also our energy consumption, air pollution, and climate change. As a result, it is of unprecedented importance to understand the overall system impacts, as a result of introducing these emerging technologies and concepts. However, existing modeling tools are not able to properly capture the implications of these technologies, not to mention accurately and reliably evaluating their effectiveness with a reasonable scope. For example, it is quite challenging to calibrate state-of-the-art microscopic traffic simulators to properly model the behavior of automated vehicles or to address potential cyber-security issues in a Connected Vehicle (CV) environment.
