This paper will focus on the software integration for mechatronic systems as they develop fast due to high demands and challenging requirements in the automotive industry.
The development order of model in the loop (MIL); software in the loop (SIL); processor in the loop (PIL) and hardware in the loop (HIL) can be seen as state of the art practised by many systems engineers. Driver in the loop (DIL) may be in its infancy; but rapidly growing.
The novelty presented in this paper is the consistency of the plant models used in the integration chain supporting consistent model data propagation: Functional Mock-up Units (FMU) defined by the open standard of the Functional Mock-up Interface (FMI).
