Aerospace and Automotive Hardware Tested in the Loop
Welcome to the event where technology meets reality! This time we will dive together into automotive and aerospace testing.
Doc. Ing. Peter Chudý, Ph.D., MBA from FIT VUT in Brno will be the first to give his presentation and will speak on the subject of Hardware in the loop in aerospace. Hardware in the loop simulations are indisputably perceived as an integral part of the avionics design and development process. This paper describes the simulation process which has been employed to test a digital autopilot for a light sport aircraft. Simulation processes have been performed on two different ground testing levels. The first setting consisted of a laboratory grade verification phase which supported the initial functional estimate of the designed and implemented autopilot features. The subsequent testing level already included the embedded autopilot system installation on board of the test aircraft. The initial hardware in the loop simulation was performed at the light aircraft simulation lab SimStar at the Brno University of Technology. The aim of the ground simulations was to verify and ground test the operational suitability of the designed autopilot flight control system elements. The implemented flight control system hardware units have been connected into the simulation network using the CANaerospace communication protocol for both testing scenarios. Simulations focused on the real time automatic flight modes operational scenarios. Both of the simulation scenarios confirmed the anticipated performance of the autopilot design features.
The second speaker will be Diego Carvalho, Engineering Software Design Leader, who will be speaking on development Valeo automotive cameras. In this session, will be presented the cameras standardized Software and Hardware framework used across the verification and validation workflow. Starting from camera testing through in-vehicle recording ending by Simulation ending with Replay HIL.
The last, but no less important speaker will be Rostislav Halaš from National Instruments, who will talk about the Evolution of NI ADAS validation toolchain. As part of his presentation, we will focus on the importance of connecting test methodologies throughout the In-Vehicle Data Record, Replay, and Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) test, with a deeper dive into the latest advancements in simulation HIL and direct image injection techniques and new technologies such as RDMA supporting this evolution.
