Virtual prototyping for vehicle dynamic modelling uri icon


  • The purpose of this paper is to provide an overview of the research that was conducted in the development of a virtual prototype of a real vehicle. For that purpose the ADAMS/CAR software was chosen because it is a sophisticated mechanical dynamic modelling tool typically used by some of the main car manufacturers. The main motivation of this virtual prototyping was to test different control techniques in an active suspension of a full scale vehicle model. This is a preliminary approach to the virtual prototyping process and how it can be used to solve forward and reverse engineering problems. Copyright ©2006 IFAC.
