Model-based software development and tests without any prototype
The functionality of control software for mobile machinery made by Palfinger AG grows as steadily as its proportion of the development process. The company strives for early tests of its control software for elevated work platforms in order to reduce the number of required prototypes while minimizing the commissioning time for the real machine. This can be achieved early on by testing and commissioning individual modules of the control unit’s software step by step with virtual prototypes. During the tests of the developed control unit for elevated work platforms, hardware-in-the-loop concepts (HiL) play a crucial role.
