Ford Deploys Fuel Cell Test System Using NI VeriStand and the INERTIA Add-On

Figure 1. Ford Motor Company needed a flexible HIL test system to evaluate passenger vehicle fuel cells.

"NI VeriStand and the INERTIA add-on provided us with an easy-to-use tool for developing and deploying our HIL tests, and the NI VeriStand plug-in architecture helped us customize the environment to meet Ford’s specific application needs."

- Michael P.C. Cornwall, Wineman Technology, Inc.

The Challenge:
Creating a hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) test system to simulate, control, and monitor passenger vehicle fuel cells developed by Ford Motor Company.

The Solution:
Basing the test system on the NI VeriStand real-time test environment, the Wineman Technology INERTIA control software add-on, and NI PXI hardware, so that Ford can test a variety of fuel cells with a single test system.
