Model-Based Engineering award winner 2013
Model-based design allowed us to develop (algorithm), simulate (through plant model), integrate (automatic code generation), test (in the field) and verify (generated code) software for an innovative automatic trailer-filling system in a very short time, enabling us to meet very tight deadlines, set by the market.
Automatic Trailer Filling System on a Self-propelled Forage Harvester
CNH Belgium nv
The judging panel commented:
“The New Holland IntelliFill™ system showed genuine innovation by integrating an advanced sensor system allowing fully automatic trailer filling in all light conditions and in the presence of dust.
"New Holland demonstrated the complete Model-Based Engineering process including modelling, simulation, rapid prototyping, validation & verification and production code generation.
"The innovation only became possible by using a Model-Based approach and has realised clear performance and economic advantages."
Energy Efficient Dynamic Positioning For Ships
GE Power Conversion
A new energy efficient control mode for the dynamic positioning system has been developed from concept to production using model-based design, reducing fuel usage and emissions as well helping to reduce maintenance for propulsion equipment.
Model-Driven Software Framework for Multi-Beam Satellite Networks Performance Analysis, Benchmarking and Optimal Configuration
Inmarsat Global Ltd
The mapping suite is a modular and model-driven software framework engineered to address the following challenges:
- Estimate the satellite performance during the design phase
- Benchmark those figures during the in-orbit testing/validation phase
- Suggest the optimal satellite and ground configuration during the operational phase
Virtual Development and Verification of World Class Stability Control Systems
Jaguar Land Rover
An entire development process from customer attribute simulation, enabling objective target setting, through to functional design and verification of requirements. Starting at concept level, the vehicle and system models are designed to meet customer level requirements and are used throughout the development process to verify the stability control systems.
A Human-like Driver Model with Intuitive Test Constructor
Jaguar Land Rover
The automated test driver replaces the need for human interaction in software validation testing. It allows a combination of time-based and event-based test scenarios to be played out in a simulation environment exactly as they would be by a human in a vehicle test.
