Mechanical Simulation Corporation

® WORLDS MOST TRUSTED VEHICLE SIMULATION PLATFORM FOR DYNAMICS, PERFORMANCE, DEVELOPMENT, AND TESTING

Mechanical Simulation develops the most accurate and com- putationally efficient methods for simulating the dynamic per- formance of cars, trucks, motorcycles, and specialty vehicles.

After more than thirty years of research, development, and proving-ground validation by worldwide vehicle manufactures, our suite of car, truck, and motorcycle simulation products are universally the preferred tools for vehicle dynamics, vehicle control development, and test engineering.

BikeSim shares CarSim’s core architecture — providing engi- neers with the power and flexibility to dynamically evaluate virtually any two-wheeled production or concept motorcycle. Additionally, by modeling and controlling the complex interac- tion between the rider and machine, BikeSim accurately simulates how rider behavior affects the bike’s overall per- formance.

MODULAR AND OPEN ARCHITECTURE

While many of our customers are vehicle dynamics ex- perts, a growing number of engineers from other disci- plines use BikeSim’s architecture as a platform to inte- grate and test their own adaptive vehicle sub-systems.

BikeSim is designed to seamlessly communicate with your software-in-the-loop (SIL) and hardware-in-the- loop (HIL) technologies. This lets you and your staff focus on algorithm design – not on writing custom test- ing code that only roughly approximates real-world scenarios and provides limited test conditions.

Modular Vehicle Definition: each vehicle sub-system is defined with discrete properties and performance tables. This modular, parameter-based architecture lets you modify the behavior of any system and lets you run simu- lations any time during the design cycle – other simula- tion tools can only be used after the entire vehicle is de- signed

Integrate your own technologies using standard design tools: Mechanical Simulation provides seamless interfaces to standard design tools such as Simulink, LabVIEW, and ASCET. Advanced us- ers can develop stand-alone technologies using the VehicleSim API with MATLAB, Visual Basic, C/C++, and other languages.

VS Commands: this powerful scripting language pro- vides tools to automatically control test runs, extend our vehicle model, control complex driving maneuvers, and model auxiliary sensors.

BikeSim—Powerful and Intuitive

From initial product conception to control algorithm develop- ment and all the way to product launch—BikeSim provides sophisticated tools that are proven to compress and optimize your design, development, and testing procedures.

BikeSim supports all industry-standard system design tools and a wide range of real-time hardware systems allowing you

to use the same vehicle data and test procedures in all prod-

uct development phases. BikeSim’s wide range of support for HIL systems allows you to choose the hardware that is best for your application—without locking you into expensive proprie-

tary hardware.

A discussion of BikeSim’s power is not complete without highlighting the ease-of-use and workflow optimization features engi-

neered into the software. Unlike complex tools that require steep learning curves and expensive consulting services, Mechanical Simulation products are designed for engineers who use a wide variety of software and must be able to produce results within minutes. To solve these issues, the software features an intuitive user interface, an extensive on-line help system, and a com-

plete set of example bikes, 3D roads, and test procedures that demonstrate all of the BikeSim features.
