New mule or demonstration vehicle needs a new E/E architecture. To ease the integration of a new E/E architecture a HIL test benches will assist the development and realization. The assistance of the HIL test bench is in the start-up and validation of a modified or new sub-system in the environment of an existing system, before integration into the final vehicle prototype.
The integration into the E/E architecture and adaption of the communication are in the main focus. These HIL bench set-ups can be done for subsystems like the powertrain as well as for complete Vehicles.
