Multidomain Modeling and Real-time Simulation with ADAMS/Car™ Models

Professor McPhee from the University of Waterloo, Canada and his research group have worked on several projects that require the use of full-chassis vehicle models from ADAMS/Car. As heavy users of this tool, they have been challenged by two major issues:

  • The addition of multi-domain subsystems to ADAMS/Car models can only be achieved through co-simulation, which is cumbersome and computationally expensive. 

  • It is not possible to implement ADAMS/Car models in real-time applications. Users are faced with the only option of transferring parameters and response data as lookups to “black-box” simulators.

In this webinar, Professor McPhee’s team and Maplesoft will present a work-flow they are developing to address these issues by allowing seamless, traceable transfer of ADAMS/Car data to configure a MapleSim multibody chassis model that is topologically equivalent to the ADAMS/Car model. This allows them to add detailed multidomain systems – engines, transmissions, electric drives, batteries etc – to the vehicle model for system-level parametric studies and optimizations. Not only that, the model leverages the symbolic power of MapleSim to allow highly optimized C-code to be generated, which is particularly well-suited for real-time hardware-in-the-loop applications.

If you are an ADAMS/Car user facing these challenges, this topic should be of particular interest.
