TruckSIM 8.0 software animates simulated tests and generates thousands of variables that can be plotted and analyzed. OEMs and tier 1 suppliers report close agreement between the TruckSIM simulation predictions and actual on-road and proving ground test results.
Using the newest version is said to be easier for casual users. Capabiliites that were available to experienced users are now automated and require only a few clicks to select vehicles, test procedures, and see the results. In addition, a new database allows you to exchange encrypted datasets with other companies. Another new feature is built-in ranging and detection sensors, along with programmable traffic vehicles and other “target objects” that the sensors can detect. The software also handles vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure safety systems development.
The 3D road surfaces has been extended to support variable-wideth roads such as lane merging or racetracks with wide curves. The product also offers live run-time engineering data displays.
