hardware-in-the-loop

A simulation system for embedded systems in automotive and aerospace applications. It combines real hardware components with software-based simulation. For example, the automotive world uses dozens of embedded systems known as "electronic control units" (ECUs). For testing the ECU, the unit is tied to software that accepts ECU signals and simulates real-time responses.
