TruckSim 6 is a software tool for simulating and analyzing the dynamic behavior of trucks, buses and articulated vehicles in response to steering, braking and acceleration inputs.
TruckSim 6 uses the same technology as CarSim 6, but involves models with dual tires, asymmetric steering and arbitrary combinations of trailers and axles.
Trucks and buses use a different steering system than cars. They can also have dual tires, multiple axle configurations and a wide range of tractor-trailer combinations.
TruckSim 6 includes 24 example trucks and buses with all of their key chassis components to cover most of the vehicles found around the world.
Examples come from North America, Europe and Japan.
Users can even request custom models at a reasonable price if needed.
TruckSim is built on decades of research in characterizing vehicles and reproducing their behaviour with mathematical models.
Data screens are intuitive and serve as your primary interface to TruckSim. These contain all of the vehicle model parameters, driver and controls inputs and road surfaces.
The data screens are part of an extensive database that maintains libraries of linked data sets.
TruckSim RT and Source versions
TruckSim 6 RT (Real-Time) extends TruckSim to work with HIL, SIL and Driving Simulator applications.
This provides an extensible common modelling environment, making it easy to move component designs between Simulink early concept SIL simulations and later HIL testing.
TruckSim 6 Source version includes the TruckSim software plus source code describing the equations in C (for the stand-alone EXE programs) and CMEX (for the DLL plug-in modules).
The software can be combined with hardware to test it more rapidly and with greater control, so a virtual vehicle can be used to test real components with configurations that might not yet exist, running under conditions that are dangerous or expensive to deal with in testing.
