HWIL/System Simulation

Embedded systems are designed to control complex plants such as land vehicles, satellites, spacecrafts, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), aircrafts, weapon systems, marine vehicles, and jet engines. They generally require a high level of complexity within the embedded system to manage the complexity of the plant under control.

Hardware-in-the-loop (HWIL) simulation achieves a highly realistic simulation of complex systems/equipment in an operational virtual environment. A typical HWIL system includes sensors to receive data from the control system, actuators to send data, a controller to process data, a human-machine interface (HMI) and a development postsimulation analysis platform. ABT's engineers and scientists define and create HWIL systems using innovative, modular, and cost-effective methodologies.
