Professional Hardware In the Loop (HIL) Simulator package is a powerful tool for Veronte Autopilot integration, development and operator training; permitting to extensively operate the system in a safe environment, prior to conducting real flight operations.
HIL simulator module enables communications between Veronte Autopilot and X-Plane simulator running on a PC. For the autopilot, it is as if it were flying, taking simulated data as real sensor inputs.
Same hardware and software used to operate the real platform can be used for performing the hardware in loop simulation by using the HIL wiring. Operator will use Veronte Pipe interface in the same way it is used during a real flight.
X-Plane simulator shares simulated sensor data with Veronte Autopilot and Veronte commands actuators in the simulator, GNC algorithms run on the autopilot hardware as it does on a real flight.
Any Veronte Autopilot, with advanced communications module enabled, can be used with the simulator, avoiding extra hardware costs.
