1 slide 1 PowerPoint Slide Shows Here are some links to an automated slide show. View it in total or in parts. You can quit any section by pressing the Escape key 1. The Company Introduction to Mechanical Simulation, the company that provides CarSim 5. CarSim RT CarSim runs much faster than real time on PCs, making it well-suited for real-time testing with hardware in the loop (HIL). 3. CarSim Math Models This presents the thinking behind the modeling of vehicle dynamics and the choices of measurable parameters and properties. 4. Extending CarSim Many CarSim users extend the models and/or controllers using Simulink. 2. Using CarSim This shows the way you use CarSim, choosing data sets, clicking buttons and viewing results. The Whole Show Click here for the full 13-minute PowerPoint show about CarSim. You can escape the show early by pressing the Escape key.

2 slide 2 The CarSim Show Simulated Vehicle Testing Easy to Use Fast Accurate Extensible Inexpensive Industry Standard CarSim ® Narrated by Michael Sayers, Ph.D. Chief technical officer at Mechanical Simulation

3 slide 3 Mechanical Simulation Background Software company specializing in vehicle dynamics Founded in 1996 Spin-off of UMTRI (Univ. of Mich. Transportation Research Institute) Core Competencies Vehicle dynamics expertise Testing point of view Making software productive Full documentation Extensive real-time support Who We Are

4 slide 4 Our Products CarSim Four-wheeled cars, light trucks, utility vehicles, race cars With or without trailers Real-time versions TruckSim Heavy trucks and combination vehicles Dual tires About Mechanical Simulation BikeSim Motorcycle dynamics For release early 2005

5 slide 5 Our Customers OEMs (Car and Truck) Tier 1 and 2 Suppliers Testing and Research Organizations Universities Who Uses CarSim / TruckSim

6 slide 6 Control strategy and software in the loop Product Development and Validation Subsystem and component definition Vehicle and system definition Production Design Vehicle and system performance When Do You Use CarSim Component testing and hardware in the loop

7 slide 7 Using CarSim The Parts of CarSim Use the database to define vehicles, conditions, and test results View results with animation View engineering plots Export results to other software Vehicle math model solvers Graphical database Surface animator Engineering plotter

8 slide 8 Simulation Graphical User Interface The database is organized with 150 graphic screens Each screen accesses a library of data sets Navigate like a web browser Use pull-down menus to select data sets from libraries Screens show data in context On-line help for all controls Easy to copy existing data sets and make changes Past runs are part of the CarSim database Using CarSim

9 slide 9 The left 1/3 of the screen has inputs for the test run The middle 1/3 has controls for the run The right 1/3 shows results of the run The CarSim Run Screen To make a run: Start with an existing data set for a similar test Maybe change the vehicle Maybe change the driver controls Maybe change the road Click the Run button Using CarSim

10 slide 10 Viewing Animations Maybe change the camera settings Maybe overlay another run Click the Animate button Using CarSim
