Wineman Technology, Inc., a leading solutions company in automotive and aerospace test, today announced its presence at AUVSI's Unmanned Systems Conference 2015 in Atlanta, Georgia, where the company will convene with the largest global community of commercial and defense leaders in intelligent robotics, drones and unmanned systems. Wineman Technology is located in booth 3249 at the show.
"Today's engineers and researchers leading the development of unmanned systems, intelligent robotics, and drones need proven test equipment to ensure their technology is safe and reliable upon operation," said Darryn LaZar, vice president of sales and marketing, Wineman Technology. "At Wineman Technology, we have specific expertise in critical applications for unmanned systems including powertrain, software and hardware validation, electrical component test, and structure fatigue."
Off-the-Shelf Test and Validation Solutions
As a leader in the design and development of test equipment, Wineman Technology combines dedicated engineers, the latest technologies and state-of-the art equipment to solve critical testing challenges across a spectrum of applications for manned and unmanned vehicles.
Wineman Technology engineers use NI VeriStand to get hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) systems up and running quickly. With out-of-the-box functionality that includes configurable data acquisition and logging, test sequencing and simulation model integration, as well as additional, customizable functionality, VeriStand is easily applicable to ECU test.
INERTIA™, a configurable automation software developed by Wineman Technology, is optimized for real-time control and data acquisition, component test, and test cell automation. It provides test, manufacturing, and R&D engineers and scientists the ability to quickly and easily develop, configure and operate their test systems. In addition, engineers can use the Wineman Technology DynEDGE and ServoEDGE platforms, which extend INERTIA for dynamometer and hydraulic test applications respectively.
A History of Proven Experience
For more than 20 years, Wineman Technology has created test systems with extensive experience in dynamometer systems, hydraulics, data acquisition systems, real-time control, test cell automation and hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) systems. Unlike companies focused on all aspects of system design, development, production and marketing, Wineman Technology focuses solely on test and control applications. This specialized focus allows the company to quickly deploy a team of expert engineers to create reliable, accurate test and control systems for specific applications.
Wineman Technology has applied its expertise working with OEMs and suppliers to develop software-based HIL systems for numerous ECU applications in a variety of industries, including automotive technologies such as lane change detection that will help to pave the way for future unmanned vehicle operation. HIL systems bring efficiency, allowing companies to maintain budgets even amidst increasingly complex challenges.
Wineman Technology teams have deployed systems for hardware and software validation of control modules, lifecycle durability and production validation, and throttle control specifically for drone technology. In addition, Wineman Technology engineers have worked with Michigan State University and used INERTIA to create a powertrain test cell environment that meets the diverse requirements for testing autonomous, 6WD ATVs.
