Control SystemS - Developing the machine brain
If a given machine were considered a living being, surely the combination of the operator and especially the control system could be described as its brain. The control system transfers the commands of the operator to the actual motion of the machine, ensuring through various sensoring systems that the operation is safe, efficient, and error-free.
Developing new features into an existing control system or adapting completely new systems into new machinery, sometimes yet to be even released, can be a daunting task, and often requires careful planning, extensive testing, and simulations. With physics-based Digital Twins, the control system can be seamlessly integrated into a virtual representation of a given machine. The state-of-the-art real-time physics, driveline, and hydraulics modelling provides all the necessary sensor sources and offers the control interface to be comparable to that of the real machine.
Mevea Software makes the integration easy and offers various types of connectivity options ranging from low-level voltage and current control signals up to higher-level control system interfacing through fieldbuses such as CAN.
