University of Ontario installs driving simulator

The University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT), with funding from the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) and Ontario Ministry of Research and Innovation, has ordered a real-time driving simulator based on CarSim and TruckSim from Mechanical Simulation Corporation.

 

The driving simulator will be located in UOIT’s $120 million (Canadian) General Motors of Canada Automotive Centre of Excellence facility, Oshawa, Ontario, to provide researchers with a high-fidelity simulation tool to develop next-generation active safety systems for passenger and commercial vehicles.

 

The simulator features the industry-leading CarSim Real-Time and TruckSim Real-Time simulation software packages from Mechanical Simulation. It will provide UOIT researchers with a platform to test vehicle control algorithms. Researchers, test drivers and industry experts will evaluate new technologies by driving vehicles in virtual traffic scenarios, monitoring their effectiveness in maintaining vehicle stability, and observing how the safety features interact with other vehicles.

 

Yuping He, Ph.D., professor of mechanical engineering at UOIT, explained why the university selected this driving simulator. “Mechanical Simulation offers high-fidelity vehicle dynamics models, and has extensive experience with high-end hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) driving simulators,” Dr He said. “In addition, CarSim and TruckSim provide a seamless interface to MATLAB/Simulink/Real-Time Workshop, which is the industry standard tool used to develop control systems for automotive vehicles.”
