Project Title: Development of a Hardware in the Loop/ Rapid Controller Prototyping facility for automotive chassis control

Project Description:

This project will involve the development of a hardware-in-the-loop/Rapid controller prototyping facility for automotive controller evaluation. The initial phase of the project will focus on the mechatronic design and implementation of actuators and sensors to model the tyre forces at each wheel. These could include, hydraulics and/or electromagnetic machines. The second phase is to interface this hardware with the vehicle dynamics software. The third phase is to incorporate a real Electronic Control Unit running in the software/hardware loop.
