Driving Simulator for Power Plant Controller Development

Article of Honda R&D Technical Review Vol.26 No.2

Summary

A driving simulator environment with the minimum configuration considered necessary for power plant controller development was added to a Hardware in the Loop Simulation environment that mounts the plant model created in the previous report (Development of High-performance Engine Plant Model and Sequential System Identification Environment for Realization of Model-based Development). This created a development environment that makes it possible to incorporate situational maneuvers performed by humans, which were previously acquired through actual vehicle tests in the final process of model-based development, into the virtual vehicle tests in the upstream processes. Driving maneuvers performed by humans were measured using the created driving simulator, and it was confirmed that maneuvers performed by humans in response to various surrounding situations can be acquired, which was not possible with a driver model. In addition, the created driving simulator was applied to actual controller development, and was verified to be useful in discovering control issues that occur in everyday driving situations, and to increase the accuracy of model-based development.
