EMBRAER Performs Full Airplane Simulation Using NI HIL Tools

 Read in  |   Print

"We selected NI VeriStand for the Legacy 500 Iron Bird because of the breadth of functionality the environment provides out of the box, which significantly reduced our development efforts."

- Guilherme Seelaender, EMBRAER S.A.

The Challenge:
Performing electronic systems integration testing by connecting the complete electrical system of the aircraft to a simulation of the rest of the plane.

The Solution:
Creating a full aircraft simulator that consists of 21 real-time PXI systems networked together using reflective memory and Ethernet interfaces.
