The Built-in HIL Simulator: A New Concept for Faster Prototyping of Navigation- and Communication-Based Control...

The “Built-In Hardware-in-the-Loop Simulator” is a new concept for speeding development of higher level navigation- and communication-based control systems constructed on automated base platforms [1]. The basic idea is to extend the software of the platform controller, so that includes not only the algorithms needed for operation, but also simplified real-time models of the actuator, sensor and vehicle dynamics to provide a “Built-In HIL” mode. Unlike conventional HIL simulators, Built-In HIL simulators can switch from HIL operation to the live configuration immediately, without hardware changes, so virtual experiments can be immediately repeated in the real operating environment.
