  A&D ORION V1.0 - New Software for Powertrain Optimization

  A&D is proud to announce the newest addition to its line of Powertrain testing systems: ORION. ORION joins ATLAS as a solution for calibration optimization. ORION was developed in conjunction with IAV GmbH as a tool to integrate both IAV's extensive powertrain calibration experience and A&D's many years of providing first-class testing tools for the automotive industry.

   "Our customers are struggling to reduce powertrain calibration time," says Yoichiro (Eddie) Koyama, President of A&D Technology, “and this is the latest tool that we have developed to help them optimize a complex powertrain in a substantially reduced timeframe".

 "IAV is excited about the tangible result of our collaboration with A&D" said Karsten Röpke, Director of Development Methods/Test Bench Automation at IAV."We have had the ability to embed some of the advanced calibration methodology we have developed into a powerful and flexible commercial tool to address a hot issue for the industry".

 ORION is a tool that enables the creation of optimized calibrations for a powertrain ECU. In conjunction with a model based calibration environment, ORION enables the user to create an optimization strategy for a specific test cell by leveraging the building blocks pioneered by IAV. ORION can interface with most test cell automation systems (e.g. A&D iTest or AVL PUMA) and ECU calibration tools (e.g. ETAS INCA or ATI Vision) to gather the required data and produce the required ECU calibrations. Included in ORION is a real-time computation engine ensuring best possible performance.
