Ever increasing complexity of buildings, transportation networks, natural resource, and energy supply systems require progressive monitoring and control systems for safe and long-lasting operation.

Advancements in Civil Engineering have led to shorter build times and increased safety and reliability. Reduce your time to market and increase the quality and reliability of your products with flexible and powerful real-time simulation and testing solutions. MathWorks modeling and simulation tools, combined with Speedgoat real-time testing hardware, enable easy data acquisition from real world scenarios. Virtual Commissioning provides efficient verification of safety and monitoring systems for large buildings, highways, railroad tunnels, considering feasibility, standard conformance, environmental issues, energy savings, and more.

"Solutions from Speedgoat have been pivotal towards the success of complex real-time hybrid simulations at the NHERI Lehigh Experimental Facility."

Thomas M. Marullo, NHERI Lehigh Research Scientist at Lehigh University


Capabilities for Real-Time Simulation and Testing


Develop, tune, and test new control strategies for your embedded controller

Rapidly develop and test safety-critical control algorithms for construction machinery, traffic controls, elevators, or building automation. The flexible prototyping platform allows for the seamless deployment of your Simulink® design, and the hardware offers I/Os to real world sensors such as strain gauges, thermocouples, and seismometers. Eliminate expensive and time-consuming hardware development iterations by applying rapid control prototyping systems.
