Platform:

2nd Workshop on High-performance and Real-time Embedded Systems (HiRES 2014), Vienna, Austria


Scope:

Hardware prototypes are commonly used during embedded control unit design. Existing commercial tools offer an integrated workflow from mathematical models down to hardware simulation. Researchers also build low-cost simulation platforms out of commodity equipment. We present a platform that is an order of magnitude cheaper than existing systems but still easy to integrate into present workflows: Within an existing model-driven design methodology, we perform real-time hardware simulation using the Raspberry Pi single-board computer to simulate an electromechanical system with little development effort.


Target Group: Test houses, academic research


Benefits for target group:

Cost-effective test-bench setup for a real-time simulation of a motor attached to the motor controller.


Mechanisms for knowledge sharing: Workshop and conference proceedings, Scientific publication
