Chinese OEM installs pioneering wet-bench driving simulator


Cruden and dSPACE have added another order from an automotive company for their combined driver-in-the-loop (DIL) and hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) testing tool. The unnamed Chinese OEM has co-developed what is claimed to be the world’s first driving simulator integrated with a wet-bench testing rig for the development of braking and steering systems at its technical centre in Shanghai.

The entire braking system was configured by dSPACE – including fuel lines, braking fluid, brake calipers, ABS controllers, valves and electrics, as found on actual production cars – is attached to the Cruden motion-based simulator’s top frame, allowing the ‘driver’ all the benefits of a virtual test environment with the experience of real braking behaviour.
