Leading companies use Rapid Control Prototyping (RCP) and Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) for faster product development. The flexible and scalable real-time simulation solutions enable you to make your research project successful.

Accelerate Your Research Projects


RCP - Rapid Control Prototyping

Engineers in industry-leading companies use rapid control prototyping (RCP) to reduce time-to-market, save costs, and reduce product development risks.

Deploy your control strategies and new algorithms modeled inside MATLAB® and Simulink® and verified with desktop simulations by the click of a button to Speedgoat real-time target machines acting as a controller and interfaced with hardware using various I/O modules and protocols.

Real-time data visualization and parameter tuning open the possibilities to use Speedgoat systems to test, for example, entire new engine-control-units (ECU) or flight-controllers or even redesign parts of existing control algorithms using a bypassing workflow.

HIL - Hardware in the Loop

Real-time plant simulation solutions from Speedgoat enable complex physical models designed using Simulink® Real-Time™, Simscape, Stateflow®, or any other compatible MathWorks® software tool, to run on modern multi-core and FPGA systems.

Simulating vehicle parts or complete vehicles, airplanes, or satellites, including environmental conditions on components or system levels, allows for safety testing beyond the range of regular operation. The flexibility and scalability of Speedgoat real-time target machines are ideally suited for more extensive research projects.

Fully integrated into MATLAB® and Simulink®, data visualization, and parameter tuning in real-time allows you to immediately monitor the effects on the simulated plant interfaced with controller hardware such as ECU, BMS, or flight-controller.
