In this paper the EPAS system and chassis system are modeled in Dymola and further exported as separate functional mockup units (FMUs) and integrated with the control algorithms in Matlab. A co-simulation based on the explicit parallel calculation scheme (Jacobi scheme) has been used. A huge simulation speed-up has shown the potential and effectiveness of the approach. To understand its accuracy and tolerance, analysis on the numerical error and dynamics of the coupled-system are given.
