The Powertrain Blockset™ includes blocks for 1DOF and 3DOF vehicle motion. The driving scenario blocks allow you to specify a drive cycle and driver commands. Use the vehicle blocks in fuel economy studies and drive cycle analysis.
Use the Virtual Vehicle Composer app to configure and build a virtual vehicle that you can use for system-level performance analysis, including component sizing, fuel economy, and drive cycle tracking. To get started with your virtual vehicle, see Get Started with the Virtual Vehicle Composer.
