The Teaching and Research Area Mechatronics in Mobile Propulsion is contributing to the project VISION.
Due to the strict policies from European Commission foreseen for EU7 boundaries, a substantial change in embedded system development is required.
The aim of this project is to investigate new automated methodologies for the calibration and the optimization of embedded system functions on Hardware-in-the-Loop (HiL) and Model-in-the-Loop (MiL) platforms with real-time chemistry-based models.
For this purpose, the LOGE-RT software for real-time emission prediction based on detailed chemistry will be refined and extended to the modeling of exhaust manifolds and engine exhaust aftertreatment.
First, the LOGE-RT software will be calibrated against measurement data, and optimized to exploit the best accuracy performances. Then, for both HiL and MiL applications, the LOGE-SW will be integrated as functional mockup unit (FMU) in dSPACE's Simulink-based mean value model (ASM).
In the developed simulation framework, the LOGE-RT software will grant the possibility to variate the location to measure the simulated quantities through "virtual" sensors, which are then used to reproduce the real environment of the complex interaction between the real embedded system and the exhaust sensors (temperatures, emissions, etc.) on the vehicle.
The real-time capable platform with validated model accuracy achieved in this way enables the software tool to be used for HiL-based virtual calibration purposes.
