SHOW NEWS: Cruden and Mechanical Simulation team up


At this year’s show, Cruden and Mechanical Simulation will work in partnership to show vehicle dynamics engineers how easy it is to integrate vehicle models created in Mechanical Simulation’s CarSim with Cruden simulators.

Cruden’s ePhyse Net interfacing package enables its automotive OEM and race team customers to run their vehicle models natively, in co-simulation, with any of its simulators through its Simulink S-functions.

Visitors will be able to drive a CarSim model of a C-class sedan around a skidpad on a Cruden 6DOF driving simulator, experiencing the effect of front- and rear-wheel drive on handling behaviour.

“The Cruden ePhyse external physics package makes our simulators available to any customer, from OEM to smaller Tier 1 supplier. It saves engineers time compiling code and reduces cost by eliminating the need for the real time workshop conversion package,” said Maarten van Donselaar, Cruden CEO.

Automotive Testing Expo Europe 2015 takes place at Messe Stuttgart, Germany, from June 16-18. Cruden will be exhibiting at booth 1169, and Mechanical Simulation at booth 1167.
