This is a method and apparatus used for comparison of a control model with the automatically generated code which represents that model. The apparatus, referred to as Hardware in the Loop, consists of electronic control units, vehicle driveline components, dynamometers, and Nighthawk super-computer. The the method presented, the model and generated code are executed concurrently in real-time. Output from the model can then be compared with the generated code in order to ensure that the code accurately represents the model. While a Vehicle System Control module is used as an example in this paper, the method can be applied to any vehicle module including transmission controller, engine controller, clutch controller, etc.
