For the development of powerful brake functions and a unique brake feel

MXbrakeHiL: Test, evaluate, and apply ESC ECU and vehicle control functions

The cutting-edge brake system test bench, MXbrakeHiL, is designed specifically for the growing needs of electric and automated vehicles. The test bench system is versatile, compatible with various real-time systems, and optimized for model-based development of ESC ECUs and advanced safety functions. Integration of the full hydraulic/ electromechanical brake system into the real-time environment, from the pedal to the brake calipers. This strongly reduces simulation complexity, simplifying development and validation tasks in every technology readiness level.

Why MXbrakeHiL?

Realistic and accurate testing of braking systems

The MXbrakeHiL allows testing of ESC ECU performance, AEB functionality, or other safety features of braking systems under realistic and accurate conditions. It can simulate different scenarios, such as road surfaces, vehicle speeds, braking forces, and environmental factors, using our advanced software models and hardware components.

Flexible and versatile configuration

Configure it to suit your specific needs with your own sensors, actuators, and components, or use our universal modules to emulate them. The test bench can be connected to most real-time systems and vehicle models, such as Vector DYNA4, IPG CarMaker, dSpace ASM or other solutions like self-developed MATLAB/Simulink models.

Efficient and cost-effective development process

By testing and validating your braking system in every stage of the development process, time and cost is reduced. Optimize your design parameters, identify and correct functional errors before touching the proving ground, and thus improve your product quality and reliability.
