VDMS Tour: HOME
Dynamics for use with MATLAB/Simulink (VDMS) is MRA's newest comprehensive
vehicle simulation program. VDMS shares equations of motion and other core
code with MRA's VDS, MMM and LTS programs (benefiting from 30+ years of
development and validation) while allowing the user to work in the popular
MATLAB and Simulink environment.
program code is shared via use of compiled Simulink S-functions. The
balance of the model is programmed in regular Simulink blocks (open,
self-documenting source code). Thus, VDMS is an excellent tool for the
development of user-specific features, in particular, the addition of
active control elements. VDMS can be compiled for real-time or
run from the MATLAB command line and over 50 pre-programmed and
user-definable plots are available from a GUI. The entire output (over 200
variables) is saved to the MATLAB workspace for further processing and
plotting. VDMS can be run with both USCS (English) and SI (Metric) units.
6.0 (or later) and Simulink 4.0 (or later), available from The MathWorks,
Inc., are required to run VDMS. MATLAB® and Simulink®
are registered trademarks of The MathWorks, Inc. Visit The MathWorks website for more
information on MATLAB and Simulink. VDMS is a part of The Mathworks Connections Program.
working knowledge of MATLAB is required to use VDMS. Knowledge of Simulink
is not required unless the user wishes to modify or add their own blocks
(code) to the model.
of a VDMS license includes the VDMS program for use with MATLAB/Simulink,
the GUI plotter, sample data files, a full day of training at MRA, a 100+
page User's Manual and support by MRA. MRA's intent is to ensure that the
purchaser can take full advantage of the simulation.
