ASM Vehicle Dynamics

The Vehicle Dynamics Simulation Package is an open Simulink® model for real-time simulation of vehicle dynamics behavior within an environment. The model is typically be used on dSPACE Simulator for hardware-in-the-loop testing of electronic control units (ECUs) or during the design phase of controller algorithms for early validation by offline simulation. It is a complete and independent model that supports all the relevant phases of the modelbased development process.

All Simulink blocks in the model are visible, so it is easy to add or replace components with custom models to adapt the vehicle’s properties perfectly to individual projects. Roads and driving maneuvers can be easily and intuitively created using graphical tools with preview and clear visualization. You will learn about the concept and the structure of the ASM Vehicle Dynamics model. The course will also deal with the options for parameterizing the vehicle, as well as the road generator and maneuver editor.
