Simulation of variants for utility trailer stabilization at AL-KO

Trailer simulation at Knott Trailertechnik

DYNA4 Car Professional: Vehicle dynamics simulation environment with optional trailer modul

AL-KO: Automated testing of the trailer stabilization algorithm

Challenges at AL-KO

  • Wide range of utility trailer variants
  • System for active trailer stabilization (ATC) must work in any variant

Methods and solutions

  • Functional testing through automated test drives with DYNA4 vehicle simulation
  • Focused trailer selection
  • Characteristic assesment with sensitivity analyses
  • Extreme test coverage with more than 32.000 simulations

Benefits

  • Optimization and improvements of the control algorithm
  • Reduction of road tests on specific, critical trailer variants
