As news headlines have underscored real-world testing of the systems found in autonomous vehicles can be complex, expensive, and hazardous. Hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulation lets engineers test subsystems and devices in a virtual environment. With HIL simulation the physical part of a machine or system is replaced by a simulation, bridging the gap between pure offline simulation and in-vehicle development (which in some cases could require millions of actual on-the-road test miles). In this way HIL greatly shortens the research and development process. HIL simulation systems are an integral part of various autonomous driving programs, but are also used to test embedded systems in standard vehicles. This presentation will describe HIL methods, applications and technologies as well as the suppliers who provide them.
