IPG CarMaker/HIL compatible with National Instruments hardware


The open integration and test platform CarMaker/HIL from IPG Automotive can now be used in combination with the National Instruments PXI platform for measurement and automation systems. This offers PXI users unlimited use of all features in the CarMaker product family for vehicle dynamics, driver assistance and powertrain applications.

CarMaker offers a host of options for virtual testing and optimization of individual vehicle components, vehicle systems and overall vehicles across the entire development cycle in the overall system – from model and software-in-the-loop to hardware and vehicle-in-the-loop.

The new solution provides quick and user-friendly integration of the PXI platform with CarMaker/HIL and a seamless exchange of data between the two components.

Both LabVIEW, National Instruments’ system design software, and VeriStand, the software environment for configuring real-time test applications, can now be used in combination with CarMaker.

IPG Automotive’s product portfolio also contains PXI-compatible I/O modules for extending NI hardware.
