Experts from HORIBA discuss RDE+, a frontloading programme utilising road, chassis and powertrain methodologies. Combined with state-of-the-art environmental emulation hardware and virtual vehicles, routes and driver toolsets, real-world driving scenarios, irrespective of the propulsion technology, can be deployed before prototype vehicles and real-world testing are required.
Key topics and takeaways:
- Introduction to RDE+
- How RDE+ is structured: RDE+ ROAD, RDE+ CHASSIS, RDE+ POWER and RDE+ VIRTUAL
- How we do it: Replication, Emulation, Simulation and Automation
- What we have done so far: Road to Chassis, Road to Engine and deployment of Virtual Tools
