TruckSim 8.1 is Released

TruckSim 8.1 has been released and is recommended for all users in maintenance. TruckSim 8.1 has many new features including:

  • Driver Model Improvements. TruckSim now supports a driver reference path that is separate from the road reference line, in support of simulations with arbitrary target paths. A path preview option is included in the speed controller to define speed as a function of curvature, aggressiveness (lateral and longitudinal acceleration limits) and skill level. The controller also has an option to take 3D surface properties into account (bank angle, grade angle, curvature normal to the road surface).
  • 64-bit support for TNO and COSIN FTire tire models. Support has been added for 64-bit versions of TNO and COSIN tire models, allowing them to be used with TruckSim when running with other 64-bit software (e.g., 64-bit Simulink).
  • Extension to the built-in tire models. Another parameter is available in the built-in tire model to control the transition between longitudinal and lateral slip in combined slip. This can improve realism for some datasets.
  • Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). The TruckSim powertrain now includes an option for CVT, with corresponding improvements in the GUI and documentation.
  • Miscellaneous Improvements. More improvements have been made to configurable table functions, including a new _EQUATION option and extensive support from the VS API. More outputs have been added to support a road-based axis system to define pitch and roll relative to a design surface. Minor changes have been made to simplify navigation in the GUI.
