Powertrain and Driving Dynamics System Simulation for Connected and Automated Vehicles

RoadRunner is designed to simulate both powertrain and vehicle longitudinal dynamics, with advanced models of human driver, vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure interactions, and multi-vehicle simulations with a strong focus on energy-efficiency.

Users can setup a CAV or human driving scenarios in a few simple steps, allowing to efficiently run a large case studies. The user first defines a scenario: the route, the number of vehicles, the type of vehicle, and the type of CAV technology for each vehicle. RoadRunner then automatically builds the vehicle model (i.e., Simulink diagram), runs the simulation, and post-processes the results for the user to analyze.
