The Real-Time PC (RTPC) is the core component of the Hardware-in-the-Loop (HiL) testing system LABCAR.

Real-Time Simulation Target for HiL Testing

Installing the LABCAR-RTPC software turns the Standard PC into a high-performance simulation target, which calculates Driver-Vehicle-Environment (DVE) models with cycle times below 0.1 ms. Thus, even highly dynamic physical control processes can be simulated in real-time. Communications are handled through standard interfaces, with preference given to PCIe or Ethernet.
