NovaCarts Advanced: The Workplace Test System

Test control unit functions inexpensively at an early stage with a powerful HiL simulator

The new, compact “NovaCarts Advanced” hardware-in-the-loop (HiL) systems fit on any desk, making them ideal as developer test stations and enabling users to test individual control devices or controller functions simply and conveniently early on in the development process.

NovaCarts Advanced systems are very powerful and constitute an ideal entry-level solution for automotive OEMs and suppliers thanks to their low price. When required, the systems can be extended incrementally to become full-fledged HiL simulators.

In its basic version, a NovaCarts Advanced system consists of a powerful Linux-based real-time computer running NovaCarts Real-Time Software and numerous connections for various I/O devices and components such as the “NovaCarts Multi I/O Board”. Furthermore, the test system supports various field buses such as CAN, CAN-FD, and LIN thanks to its integrated vehicle bus node.

Enhanced version for testing vehicle functions across different controllers

The full-featured version even enables test departments to use NovaCarts Advanced to test vehicle functions that involve several control devices. In the area of driver assistance systems, for example, realistic approval tests can be performed cost-efficiently and with significant test depth with drivetrain or chassis elements such as a steering system as a genuine component. This permits functions spanning a number of control devices – as well as the interaction of various components – to be examined in detail.

NovaCarts Advanced HiL simulators are compatible with other NovaCarts systems and can be very quickly coupled to form integrated systems. When required, interconnected HiL simulators can be just as quickly converted back into standalone test stations. The NovaCarts Advanced HiL system is now available from MicroNova.
