Hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulation is the method used to test the functions, system integration, and communication of electronic control units (ECUs). ECUs are indispensable for vehicles, airplanes and robots. The technical environment of the ECUs and interconnected system parts are simulated in HIL simulation. The HIL tests are very systematic and also completely safe, even when critical thresholds are exceeded. The main goal is to detect errors in ECUs. Once detected, the situation that produces the error can be reproduced whenever and however required.
