Mechanical Simulation adds native support for multiple vehicles

With the release of the VehicleSim products version 2020.0, a new library screen adds native support for multiple vehicles.

This screen is used to setup a simulation involving multiple full dynamics vehicles running simultaneously. Each link is made to a Run Control dataset that specifies the properties of the vehicle and its environment.

The simulation must be run from external software, such as Simulink, a wrapper program running under Python, or MATLAB/Simulink.

A standard license allows two simultaneous instances of the vehicle model to run. Additional simultaneous instances can be run using the optional Parallel License feature.

Up to 20 vehicles may be run under Windows or Linux. On some real-time systems, the number of vehicles is limited by the capabilities of the target computer.
