Chroma ATE Inc. Invited to Present Paper at WCX SAE World Congress Experience

25 May 2023

SAE International's WCX is the world's foremost automotive technical conference, encompassing all aspects of modern automotive mobility. It serves as a comprehensive platform for research and development, engineering and manufacturing, testing and verification, certification and integration, as well as ensuring ongoing safety, and sustainability of automotive systems and components.

Chroma ATE Inc. had the honor of presenting a paper titled "Development and Test of ABS/TCS Controller with Dual-Axis Dynamometer HIL Platform" at the prestigious WCX SAE World Congress Experience. This opportunity allowed Chroma to showcase our cutting-edge technical knowledge and innovations. The paper described a Hardware-In-the-Loop (HIL) platform based on a dual-axis dynamometer for the development and validation of ABS/TCS controllers. Antilock Braking Systems (ABS) and Traction Control Systems (TCS) are essential safety features in passenger vehicles. The ABS prevents wheel lock-up during braking, while the TCS prevents wheel slippage by regulating driving power. Our real-time platform, based on a Simulink vehicle model and simulation environment, incorporates an actual drive motor, hydraulic braking system, and Chroma dual-axis dynamometer test bench. This setup provides more realistic and complex conditions compared to the traditional one-axis platform. The dual-axis architecture enables effective simulation results on two axes, allowing evaluation of control logics and performance of developed controllers on the actual drive and brake control unit. The technical category in which Chroma ATE Inc. participated was "ADAS and Autonomous Vehicle System: Simulation and Testing." The paper was delivered by Shu-Ting Liu, Product Engineer at Chroma ATE Inc., on April 20 at the WCX venue. For more information about this paper, please click here.
