HIL Testing & Validation

With increasing complexities in Electronic Control Units (ECUs) and being central to the management of multiple systems, there is an increased need for rigorous testing in a simulated environment. Rigorous testing of the system is needed to ensure that it performs as expected.

Hardware in Loop (HIL) is a fast-growing validation methodology amongst OEMs and Tier-1 suppliers in the global market. It’s a tedious job for every OEM and Tier-1 supplier to mature the Software and Hardware in the early stage of Vehicle development. By interfacing multiple sub-systems simultaneously, it exposes deficiencies, as units are tested in combination, and as they interact with each other.

Our HIL Testing & Validation Capabilities


Every engineering prototype part is very expensive and has targets to complete on-time delivery for which, our HIL Validation solution will help OEMs to mature the software and hardware. From prototype development to SOP, we ensure smooth vehicle build without any issues for every milestone.

Hinduja Tech offers a systematic Validation Solution from Concept to SOP, starting from Requirement Analysis, Test Case Design and Development, Test Automation (CAPL / Python), LABCAR Design, Wiring, Fabrication, MATLAB Model interface, and commissioning in HIL Test environment. We also offer HIL Testing solutions for Individual Electronic Components, Complete Vehicle Testing including End-of-Line Testing.

HIL Testing & Validation Solutions

Our HIL Testing & Validation solution offers Multiple Electronic Control units in mixed (physical & virtual) test environments, where we simulate ECUs with MATLAB models and integrate Real Electronic Control Units in the LABCAR. This solution will help OEMs to validate vehicle functionalities without a Real Electronic Control Unit. We are able to offer the below services as either an ODC model or R&D Partner Support Model.

FAQ - HIL Testing & Validation

How does HIL Testing help in our development cycle?

HIL Testing plays a pivotal role in any V Model development cycle by offering the following benefits:
  • Software maturation in the early stage of development
  • Reduces time to market by Automating testing processes
  • Reduces the chances of recalls
  • Ability to Investigate/Replicate Field Failure issues in the Lab
  • Validation of ECU’s interface before the first build
  • Helps in finding the defect’s root cause
  • Uncover Bugs and Failures that might not be apparent in software-only testing

How does Hinduja Tech support in HIL Testing?

As a comprehensive vehicle development company, guiding projects from concept to production, Hinduja Tech provides a distinctive approach to HIL testing. Our expertise allows the early identification of issues in the development cycle. With a skilled team of experienced engineers and leaders, we collaborate with clients to customize solutions that precisely address their unique requirements. We are also equipped with state-of-the-art simulators from industry leaders like dSPACE and Vector VT HIL systems.

What services does Hinduja Tech Offer?
