Abstract: This paper describes an integrated environment for building quick software prototype for chassis/driveline controls and integration. Under this environment, engineers are able to focus on chassis/driveline controls and integration algorithm development quickly and effectively through user-friendly modelling and simulation interfaces. The system architecture for providing the flexibility in control algorithm development is discussed. The environment under which chassis/driveline dynamics controls are seamlessly integrated is described and the features of control algorithm library sharing and reusability are briefly discussed.

Keywords: chassis and driveline control and integration; computer simulation; simulation environment; vehicle dynamics.
