HUMAN-IN-THE-LOOP TESTING FOR AGRICULTURAL AND CONSTRUCTION MACHINERY – R&D, SOFTWARE CONTROL, HARDWARE, HMI, DESIGN, RIDE & COMFORT, COMPONENT TESTING

Professional static and motion-based simulators speed up and improve R&D and validation processes for machinery engineers, first tier OEMs, research institutes, and everything in between. Cruden provides visual, motion, sound and feedback (feeling) systems creating the most immersive experience possible which is important for realistic research results. Cruden’s machinery simulators are bringing Cruden’s experience in automotive engineering simulator development to agricultural and construction machinery engineering.

In construction and agricultural applications engineers are working hard to make the best possible product in the shortest timeframe possible. By adding a human-in-the-loop at the earliest possible stage of the development process, engineers can validate and make design choices sooner and with greater confidence, resulting in better designs, shorter development time, less cost building prototypes and reduced environmental impact. Additionally high fidelity dynamic vehicle and subsystem testing helps engineers with subjective evaluation in an immersive and realistic context with fully risk free and controllable test conditions.

“The driving simulator is part of the comprehensive virtual development chain that we are already using successfully to design new chassis. In the future, we want to use it to experience driving characteristics very early on, in order to make pivotal decisions about the project. That saves time and resources and makes it possible for us to influence the vehicle concept early on.”

“Our previous simulator wasn’t realistic enough to be used for car development or setup optimisation and was not really open to development by our own engineers. Adding Panthera gives us better platform cueing to improve driver immersion; better performing and more efficient image rendering and a higher display frequency; better control of steering force feedback and belt-tensioner cueing; more realistic car and tyre models; and better correlation between simulation and real-driving.”

Technical Director at Mahindra Racing

“A professional simulator is needed to ensure that our energy strategies are correct and that our drivers are familiar with all the controls procedures and options before we get to the track. After researching all options, we concluded that a Cruden simulator will provide the best balance between cost and technical benefit. It’s important that we are be able to integrate the simulator with our existing vehicle model. Cruden is a skilled system integrator with a detailed understanding of racing operations which gives us a great deal of confidence.”

“The development cycle of any mechatronic component consists of three main stages: model-in-the-loop, software-in-the-loop and hardware-in-the-loop. For us, there was a gap because the driver is not involved in any of these three stages. To do this we purchased a Cruden DIL simulator, which is now the fourth and final stage of our simulation cycle.”

“We selected Cruden as a full system integrator of the simulation environment and due to the company’s proper management of the simulator latency effect and quality of customer service.”

“The simulator will enable Artemis Technologies to make design direction decisions much earlier. We learn too much too late, only discovering whether the offline engineering has been successful once we get the boat in the water.”

“It is so easy to change the setup in the simulator. It allows us to get a first glimpse of how the cars’ mechanical grip changes with different setups. Usually we do ten minute stints with quick setup changes and as a driver it’s great to feel the immediate effect of a change, rather than having to wait for the mechanics.”

Director, Mobility Systems Laboratory at UT-Austin

“The Cruden system affords us the luxury of testing and validating autonomous vehicle control systems exclusively or as part of a wider scope of research where human behaviours and interactions with these systems are repeatedly monitored and observed in real time. The flexibility and ease at which the hardware and software works together enables us to conduct repeatable and measurable research on accurate representations of the vehicles, the prevailing driving environment and numerous scenarios in which a driver may encounter.”
