The performance and reliability of mobile work machines are significantly affected by control systems of machines and their characteristics. Currently the testing of control systems and verification of their properties is often carried out just in the integration phase of controls and mechanical structure of machine. This is very time consuming, requires a lot of test personnel and is not extensive enough. In TINAT project a test concept will be developed for the testing of entire control systems of work machines without real the mechanical structures of the machines by utilizing modelling and real-time hardware-in-the-loop simulation. The simulator system enables automatic generation of test scenarios and automatic analysis and reporting of test results.
