Model-Based Calibration Toolbox 1.1 Release Notes

Introduction to the Model-Based Calibration Toolbox

Feature Summary

The Model-Based Calibration Toolbox contains tools for design of experiments, statistical modeling, and calibration of complex systems. You can use these tools to systematically find optimal calibrations for increasingly complex powertrain systems. The toolbox can significantly reduce dynamometer testing time, increase engineering productivity, save calibration time, and improve performance and reliability.

There are two main user interfaces:

Model Browser

The Model Browser is a flexible, powerful, intuitive graphical interface for building and evaluating experimental designs and statistical models. The Model Browser enables you to:

CAGE Browser

CAGE (CAlibration GEneration) is an easy-to-use graphical interface for calibrating lookup tables for your Electronic Control Unit (ECU).

As engines get more complicated, and models of engine behavior more intricate, it is increasingly difficult to rely on intuition alone to calibrate lookup tables. CAGE provides analytical methods for calibrating lookup tables.

CAGE uses models of the engine control subsystems to calibrate lookup tables. With CAGE you fill and optimize lookup tables in existing ECU software using Model Browser models. From these models, CAGE builds steady-state ECU calibrations.

CAGE also compares lookup tables directly to experimental data for validation.

New Features for Release 13

The Model-Based Calibration Toolbox Version 1.0 was released in Web-downloadable form after Release 12.1 was released, but before Release 13.

Here are the enhancements for Version 1.1.
