MapleSim models now available to LABCAR customers


ETAS and Maplesoft have successfully connected LABCAR – the hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) testing system from ETAS – and MapleSim – the advanced system level modeling tool from Maplesoft. Initial projects have shown that using MapleSim models resulted in implementation that was more than 15 times faster compared to other similar products.

The seamless integration of MapleSim models into the LABCAR HIL environment significantly increases productivity for LABCAR customers. Typically, models developed early in the design phase must be modified, by hand, before they can be used in the HIL test and validation phase, in order to make them fast enough for use in a real time testing environment.

However, MapleSim’s unique technology produces extremely fast simulation code, without sacrificing model fidelity. As a result, engineers can use the same models in both phases of the project, saving them time and giving them highly accurate simulation results.

“Everyone benefits when companies like ETAS and Maplesoft support the FMI (functional mock-up interface) standard for model exchange and co-simulation,” said Dr Laurent Bernardin, executive VP and chief scientist, Maplesoft.

“The seamless integration of MapleSim models in LABCAR makes it easy for engineers to leverage the strengths of both tools, without having to spend time trying to manually make the tools connect.”
