Vehicle Modeling

SoVa Motion can aid in the development of component through vehicle level model development. Using some of SoVa Motion’s other assets, including the shock dynamometer, and 8 post vehicle dynamics shaker, we can help build empirical models from actual test articles, or perform parameter estimation. Conversely, leveraging extensive simulation experience, SoVa Motion can help your organization build explicit simulation models. As mentioned above, SoVa Motion has a dSpace Autobox real time controller which allows for various combinations of hardware-in-the-loop simulation.

  • Empirical model development.
  • Explicit model development.
  • Hardware-in-the-loop testing.
  • Parameter estimation testing (e.g. 8 Post shaker )

Additionally, through our alliance with Virginia Tech, Virginia Tech Transportation Institute, and the Institute of Advanced Learning & Research, there is a vast array of simulation experience which can be tapped. SoVa Motion is actively engaged in research programs which take advantage of our state-of-the-art testing assets.
