Chip Simulation of Automotive ECUs on PC

Daimler uses virtual ECUs by QTronic to develop engine controls. Read more about this in ATZ elektronik, 06/2012.

Abstract: Modern ECUs contain tens of thousands of engine parameters that need to be tuned. Calibration of these parameters is time consuming and complex. Simulation and optimization on a PC can help to automate and speed up the calibration process, in particular if simulation runs much faster (e.g. 20 times) than real-time. QTronic and Daimler describe how the ECU Simulation is integrated in an engine development process by the OEM. 06/2012
