Brandão, F., Kelly, D., and Fan, K., "Using Model, Software and Hardware-in-Loop to Develop Automated Transmission," SAE Technical Paper 2007-01-2581, 2007, doi:10.4271/2007-01-2581.
Advances in rapid prototyping have produced significant reductions in controller development time in recent years, and the trend is for this to continue. At the same time, government regulations have become more stringent and the customer demand for improved performance - handling, driveability, safety and fuel economy - has increased. Therefore, new techniques have to be used and developed in order to meet the new time frame and requirements. In this paper, the authors will show an example of how ‘in loop’ techniques can be successfully applied to model and simulate an Automated Manual Transmission (AMT).
