Mitts, K., Lang, K., Roudier, T., and Kiskis, D., "Using a Co-simulation Framework to Enable Software-in-the-Loop Powertrain System Development," SAE Technical Paper 2009-01-0520, 2009, doi:10.4271/2009-01-0520.
The Advanced Engineering (AE) group within General Motors Powertrain (GMPT) develops next generation engines and transmissions for automotive and marine products. As a research organization, AE needs to prototype design ideas quickly and inexpensively. To this end, AE has embraced model-based development techniques and is currently investigating the benefits of software in-the-loop (SIL) testing. The underlying obstacle faced in developing a practical SIL system lays in the ability to integrate a plant model with sufficient fidelity together with target application software. ChiasTek worked with AE utilizing their CosiMate tool chain to eliminate these barriers and delivered a flexible SIL system simulation solution.
