Updates in CarSim, TruckSim, and BikeSim improve vehicle dynamics analysis

LinkedIn +

Mechanical Simulation Corporation has released CarSim 2016, TruckSim 2016 and BikeSim 2016 with integrated improvements for both new and existing users.

New GUI screens have been added to build roads and paths with segments that can be straight, circular arcs, clothoid spirals, or X-Y tables. GUI screens for X-Y tables include an option to import GPS data that can be obtained online from a new page on the CarSim website. Multiple 3D road surfaces are connected with built-in boundaries using four new GUI screens. Tires and moving objects automatically change surfaces when they cross boundaries.

Meanwhile, the steering system model has been rewritten internally to support options for replacing and/or disabling parts of the model with external components. The twist-beam suspension model has been extended with six new GUI screens to account for the many compliance conditions that occur in the K&C tests and on the road.

ADAS sensor detections include five more variables (pictured), the GUI screens for sensors and moving objects have been extended, dashboard alerts are included and many ADAS examples have been added.
