Model Based Testing

AVL CRUISE™ and AVL CRUISE™ M deliver the right system plant model fidelity for a wide range of testing applications such as Engine testbed, Battery testbed, E-Motor testbed, etc… The re-use of the multi-physics model ensures on one side consistency, result comparability and the shortening of the test preparation time. On the other side, this enables frontloading of methodology and test procedures which means that more work can be done in the virtual world, significantly reducing costs and development time.

AVL Approach

System models, set up in the office for solving powertrain analysis and optimization tasks using AVL CRUISE™ and AVL CRUISE™ M, can be re-used again in the field of components and control systems testing (engine testbed, hardware in the loop). This is possible thanks to the use of the same system solver, which has been optimized for office as well as real-time applications. It means that the effort to exchange models between office and test systems in both directions is kept very low. This model and solver consistency is the basis for achieving comparable results with high quality throughout the whole development cycle.

Benefits at a Glance

  • Test and calibration of components with any vehicle powertrain concepts, from the most conventional to the most innovative
  • Re-use of system models prepared by simulation experts in the office reduces the testbed downtime
  • High-quality system models enable frontloading of development tasks from the road to the testbed to the office
