Digital Cube Test Center

Lupe

The Digital Cube Test Center can be used for various application scenarios within the product and process development. The main applications are the Smart Hybrid Prototyping (with the implementation of the Functional Drive Simulator) and the Smart Hybrid Process Planning.

Motivation

Changes in the automobile industry

The modern vehicle has experienced a strong change in our time regarding the implementation of innovations. These innovations were driven earlier by improvements in mechanical and electrical systems, so nowadays innovations in safety and comfort are made possible mainly through electronic and software systems. They need in their design and development a high content of interdisciplinary Engineering Know-How. The proportion of certain software of mechatronic systems in vehicles will strongly increase in the coming years and alongside improvements in energy efficiency, comfort, and infotainment especially allow a significant increase of the driving safety through innovative, active systems.

Changes in development tools

The changing requirements for vehicles and the resultant change in development tasks and issues require new development tools. Here above all, a lack of tools is evident, that allow human-centered protection of complex system in an early development phase. Today'development tools are only limited to be able to meet statements, such as the consequences of development decisions experienced by future users.

Der am Fraunhofer IPK und am IWF der TU Berlin entwickelte Ansatz des Smart Hybrid Prototypings schließt durch geschickte Kopplung von Simulation, Techniken der Virtuellen Realität (VR) und Computerhaptik diese Lücke.

The Functional Drive Simulator is a step in the research and further development of this technology.

Aims

  • Testing of mechatronic vehicle functions
  • Holistic consideration of people, vehicles and environment (and their interaction) under dynamic conditions with real-time simulation
  • Use of CAD and visualization models with enrichment through simulation models
  • Improvement of usability of digital models in terms of context sensitive judgment
  • Security and full risk assessment of complex mechatronic systems in early stages of development
  • Real-time simulation of the interaction of the driver with the vehicle and the environment under dynamic conditions
  • Ergonomics study in the early digital development phase and not on real prototype
  • Creation of a new development environment for functional testing of vehicle functions

Functional Drive Simulator

The additional benefit of the Functional Drive Simulator lies in the possibility of a greater user involvement in the development of innovative automotive - systems. It allows…(more)
