MotorBrain: Model-Based Design and Virtual Integration of an Intelligent and Safe Electrical Powertrain

University Booth at DATE 2014
Hardware prototypes and hardware in the loop simulations are commonly used during embedded vehicle- and motor-control unit design. This demonstrator presents a platform that is an order of magnitude cheaper than existing systems but still easy to integrate into present workflows: Within an existing model-driven design methodology, a real-time hardware simulation is performed using the Raspberry Pi single-board computer to simulate an e-motor with little development effort and in conjunction with an industrial motor control unit.
