Comportement dynamique

Vehicle Testing Suite (VTS) comprend une série de tests automatisés développés en collaboration avec Leane International et testés par Fiat-Chrysler Automobiles sur leur centre d'essai européen. La solution complète exploite les performances du logiciel Dewesoft X et des systèmes d’acquisition de données Dewesoft. Elle comprend des manœuvres standards de comportement véhicule et donne au conducteur une analyse rapide de la réussite ou de l'échec de l'essai.

Caractéristiques principales

  • RÉSULTATS EN TEMPS RÉEL : Les logiciels VTS et Dewesoft X affichent toutes les validations et les résultats en temps réel pendant l'enregistrement. Des fonctions mathématiques ou d'affichages supplémentaires peuvent être ajoutés en post-traitement.
  • SÉQUENCE DE TEST AUTOMATISÉ : VTS propose des tests prédéfinis pour l'opérateur et des contrôles visuels simples pour la configuration et le déclenchement des mesures.
  • STANDARDS ISO ET CEE : Tous les tests disponibles sont effectués et conformes aux normes ISO et CEE.
  • RÉSULTATS ET STATISTIQUES AUTOMATISÉS : VTS peut afficher un tableau récapitulatif avec des statistiques et superposer les résultats de plusieurs séries d'essais.
  • PRÉCISION JUSQU'À 2 CM: Nous proposons du matériel de haute précision pour GPS ou IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) avec prise en charge RTK (en option) pour une précision optimale des mesures de vitesse et de position.
  • NOMBREUSES MANOEUVRES : VTS propose plusieurs manœuvres standards telles que le rayon de braquage constant, la réponse transitoire latérale non linéaire et pseudo aléatoire, centrage sur sinusoïde, mouvements pendulaires, impulsion au volant, virage lent, sinus avec palier...

Vehicle Test Suite

In spite of the increasing adoption of virtual analysis tools in the vehicle development process, the amount of testing activity is all but decreasing, due to several reasons:

  • Detailed simulation models require reliable experimental data for validation.
  • The refinement of some vehicle attributes still need the “human touch”, delivered by subjective and objective test and development on physical prototypes.
  • The development and validation of advanced driving functions (ADAS, autonomous driving) still require extensive real-world testing.


In this context, in an extremely competitive global market, the testing process must be extremely efficient, considering:

Overall quality of the measurement

  • Compliance and reproducibility of the test execution
  • Data accuracy: sensors and acquisition system

Cost efficiency

  • Preparation time: easy vehicle sensor setup and DAQ system configuration
  • Actual test time: optimize the use of the time spent on the test track or on a test rig

System Overview

The image on the right shows the Vehicle Testing Suite data acquisition system which consists of:

Standard Test Maneuvers

Dewesoft Vehicle Test Suite provides easy-to-use automated testing for the following standard test maneuvers:

Test type Ref. standard
Steady state cornering ISO 4138
Step steer input ISO 7401
Step steer non-linear Based on ISO 7401
On center sinus steer ISO 13674-1
Pseudo Random Steer ISO 7401, ISO TR-8726
Pulse Input Method ISO 17288-2
Slowly increasing steer ECE 13H
Sine with dwell ECE 13H
More test maneuvers in development

For every type of test, validation criteria and other objective parameters are calculated and made available as calculated channels in the measurement files.

Data Processing

Dewesoft Vehicle Dynamics plugin is designed to carry on the pre-processing of the raw signals in accordance with the requirements of ISO standards for vehicle dynamics objective data analysis. All the settings can be managed in the Dewesoft setup. The main features include:

Data processing

  • Catalog of standard test maneuvers
  • Management of the coordinate system
  • Filters
  • Compensation of the sensor position effect
  • Compensation of the g-force effect

Data Processing

Coordinate system

Given the details of the input channels, the output channels are calculated in the desired coordinate system.

Filter and synchronization

The input channels are filtered according to ISO 15037-1 / -2 or ECE 13H standards. Known sensor delays are compensated.

Compensation of the sensor position effect

Given the sensor location, the Dewesoft X Vehicle Dynamics plugin calculates speed and acceleration at the desired reference point.

Compensation of the gravity effect

The Dewesoft X Vehicle Dynamics plugin calculates the roll and pitch angle and compensates the effect of g-force, if the input acceleration is not in the horizontal plane.

Vehicle Test Suite Application

VTS is an easy to use test automation tool and test driver interface on top of Dewesoft. It is designed in order to achieve the highest productivity on the test track with DS Vehicle Dynamics plugin. Main features:

  • Support for DEWESoft Vehicle Dynamics plugin.
  • Management of vehicle data and sensor coordinates data.
  • International standards or custom test procedures.
  • Dewesoft integrated into the VTS measurement panel.
  • Quick look display of the main parameters and execution check.
  • Automatic test file naming and storing in a custom folder structure.
  • Data overlay and statistics from multiple test runs
  • Modular architecture for easy extension and further customization.

Vehicle Test Suite Application

The VTS application manages the configuration parameters of each type of test:

  • Info: basic information about the test.
  • Measurement settings: sample rate, Dewesoft screen ID, subfolder for data storage.
  • Trigger conditions.
  • Execution conditions: the allowed values of the nominal execution parameters, such as vehicle speed, path radius, steer frequency, etc.
  • Validation condition: the admissible threshold values used in the validation check.
  • The user can edit and store the default configuration of each type of test, based e.g. on the type of vehicle (passenger car or truck).

Easy Control for the Test Driver

Everything that the test driver needs to control is available with a single touch on the bright and in-car mounted display. The test driver just selects the test session and the test maneuver to perform and set the parameters:

  • Nominal conditions
  • Start / stop storing controls
  • Test setup
  • Test analysis
  • Save/cancel the test file

Right after stop storing, the test results are available, the driver can save or discard the data file and continue with the next test.
