Prototyping with INTECRIO-RLINK – Measurement and Calibration on the PC with INCA-VLINK

Example of an ETAS prototyping system: The ES910 module running the control function modeled in Simulink® is connected to an ECU through the ETK bypass interface and to sensor and actuator signals via the ES930 module in real time.

Automotive control functions are often specified in MATLAB®/Simulink®. With the deployment of prototyping methods, the development of control functions becomes more efficient, rapid, and reliable. Through prototyping, users can identify and correct errors early. This avoids time intensive and costly iterations during software development. Through the use of the new ETAS INTECRIO-RLINK Prototyping Blockset, Simulink® models can be easily tested onboard the vehicle.

Control function development, test and calibration engineers require early validation and calibration of Simulink® models with the ETAS INCA measurement and calibration tool. The ETAS INCA-VLINK Blockset allows the deployment of Simulink® models as executable programs running on standard Windows PCs. Through the use of INCA-VLINK, validation and calibration tasks can be shifted from the vehicle and the test bench to the desktop computer, saving time and money.
