We proudly share with you the HIL simulation (Hardware In the Loop) of the drive & Control from the EAGLE-ACCESS system. In the video we show the EAGLE-ACCESS system on a virtual ship moving at sea. All the Hardware is connected to the control system allowing us to verify if all connections are properly working as well as the software performing as it should to compensate for the ship motions and motions from the manual control.

With the HIL simulation we use the output to control the hardware (e-motors are turning) but also send these signals into the simulation laptop with the simulation software from partner Controllab. On the screen the movements and behaviour are shown and the accuracy can be verified.

The full tests are now being prepared for the FAT at our partner ELMA BV.
