BMW Group’s next-generation vehicles to be validated by Dspace simulators


  • Dspace announces that the next generation of BMW Group vehicles will be validated exclusively by its simulation tools.
  • This extends the trusted contract that has bound the two companies for over 25 years in the field of simulation and validation of in-vehicle electronic systems.

Dspace’s hardware-in-the-loop simulators, consisting of hardware and software components, will be used by the BMW Group at development sites around the world for testing in areas such as electrical machines, memory and energy management, vehicle dynamics systems and driver assistance systems.

Dspace says this is one of its largest orders ever in its history. The agreement covers the deployment of Scalexio-based hardware and software components, as well as complete systems. Scalexio real-time test systems, with bus and network support, can be integrated into the development processes of automotive manufacturers. They enable realistic testing and automatic validation of vehicle electronics.
