True Hardware in the Loop (trueHWIL) Simulator Delivers More Complete, Higher Fidelity Simulation

January 7, 2008

MicroPilot's new True Hardware in the Loop (trueHWILmp) simulator will be of interest to larger companies who are looking for a more complete and higher fidelity simulation.

Unlike existing quasi hardware-in-the-loop simulators that use a serial communications port to transmit sensor information to the autopilot, the trueHWILmp uses analog-to-digital converters to simulate sensor signals. This provides the highest possible simulation fidelity, as exactly the same code executes in the simulated autopilot as executes in the real autopilot are used.

Available for both the MP2x28g and MP2128g autopilots, the trueHWIL simulator allows the UAV developer to use a MATLAB-based simulator and includes a Simulink blockset suitable for simulating a fixed-wing UAV.

* * * * * MicroPilot is the world's leading manufacturer of miniature autopilots for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) and micro aerial vehicles (MAV), serving over 400 UAV integrators in 51 countries.

For reputation, versatility, dependability, and innovation, MicroPilot is the world leader in miniature autopilots.
