Model-based Development & HIL Testing for Mechatronic Systems
Model-based Development & HIL Testing for Mechatronic Systems
Mar 25th 2010 (2 PM ET/11 AM PT/ 19:00 GMT)

Register today to attend this seminar, featuring experts from two of the leading engineering modeling and real-time simulation tool providers. They will present:
  • An overview of modeling and simulation of complex engineering systems using physical modeling techniques derived from symbolic model formulation techniques
  • The advantages for implementation in real-time simulation systems for HIL testing
  • Applications using MapleSim for multi-domain system model development and deployment to the range of real-time simulation platforms from National Instruments, featuring NI VeriStand™, a new ready-to-use software environment for configuring real-time testing applications, including hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) test systems

Chris Washington, Senior Product Manager - Real-Time Testing & HIL Simulation, National Instruments
During his tenure at NI, Washington spent three years in Detroit, MI, as a field engineer where he provided consulting and support services for various applications, such as hardware-in-the-loop simulation; rapid control prototyping; noise, vibration, and harshness testing; in-vehicle data logging; and real-time test cell development. Additionally, Washington has worked as an applications engineer and a LabVIEW instructor. He received his bachelor of science in electrical engineering from Texas A&M University with a focus on digital electronics and control systems.
