The Automotive HIL course will teach you to build, configure, and maintain HIL systems for component (subsystem) level HIL, and how to transition from this setup into system-level HIL. The course covers the major components of the HIL workflow, including system set-up, model and Custom Device integration, vehicle bus protocol fault insertion, residual bus simulation, use of Automotive toolkits, automated testing, debugging, and system management.
