Graphical modeling tool leverages real-time Linux

Concurrent Computer Corp. is shipping a new simulation tool for its iHawk real-time Linux platforms. The SIMulation Workbench modeling environment is intended to help engineers develop and execute real-time "hardware-in-loop" and "man-in-loop" simulations for applications such as automotive manufacturing, according to the company.

Concurrent, a vendor of high-performance systems and real-time Linux software aimed primarily at military and aerospace applications, claims that its fully-integrated GUI test platform improves test quality and reduces development costs. The core technology behind SIMulation Workbench was recently used by Airbus to simulate the design of its A400M military transport plane.
