Hardware in the loop simulation combines a system to be tested with a software representation of the platform it will eventually be joined to. These mathematical representations are referred to as the “plant simulation”. The embedded system to be tested interacts with this plant simulation. For example, a HIL simulation… read more

Hill Descent Assist

This feature works with your vehicle’s existing braking systems to block you from going past a certain speed while travelling downhill or on unsteady terrain. In automatic or drive-by-wire vehicles such as electric or hybrid, it may reduce available power to the wheels. If your car begins accelerating past a… read more

Hill Start Assistance

System which helps driver balance engagement of power with any negative forces affecting the vehicle, moving from parked or stopped at a junction up an incline. Sensors in the vehicle are used to detect when a vehicle is on an incline and maintain the brake pressure for a set period… read more
