Vehicle Dynamics Blockset

Model and simulate vehicle dynamics in a virtual 3D environment

Vehicle Dynamics Blockset™ provides preassembled automotive vehicle dynamics reference applications for passenger cars, trucks, and two-wheelers. The blockset includes a component library for propulsion, steering, suspension, vehicle body, brakes, tires, and driver models, as well as component and supervisory controllers. You can use the built-in interface with Unreal Engine® to visualize simulations and communicate scene information back to your model.

Vehicle Dynamics Blockset offers the Virtual Vehicle Composer app for configuring and parameterizing models, as well as prebuilt workflows for Kinematics and Compliance (K&C) testing and calibrating models from test data. You can use these models for ride and handling analyses, chassis controls development, software integration testing, and hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) testing. The models are open, so you can incorporate your own subsystems and customize them as needed.
