The plurality of configurable inputs and outputs comprises a predefined output for sending a broadcast message and a predefined input for receiving a broadcast response message. The card comprises a board, at least one processor mounted on the board, at least one memory mounted on the board and in electronic communication with the processor, the configurable input/output unit comprising the plurality of configurable inputs and outputs, and a bus for providing electronic data exchange there between. The processor configures the plurality of inputs and outputs of the configurable input/output unit based on the broadcast response message. The processor may generate testing signals to the plurality of inputs and outputs of the configurable input/output unit.


The present modeling tool and method dynamically generate a maintenance simulation of a vehicle. For doing so, a configuration interface receives a list of components of the vehicle, each particular component comprising parameters defining the particular component. The configuration interface further receives relationships between the components in the list, and determines a plurality of state, transitions, conditions, triggers and actions. A processing unit processes the data received and determined via the configuration interface to generate the maintenance simulation, the maintenance simulation comprising an aggregation of all the determined transitions between the components into a global state machine. The present method may further be performed by a computer program product.

A method and computer system for updating damaged-enhanced polygon meshes in a computer simulation associated to a storage module accessible to at least a first and a second decentralized simulation stations and a centralized processing unit thereof. At the first station, during the computer simulation, determining coordinates of a virtual impact on a 3D polygon mesh, computing newly formed 3D polygon mesh(es) from the virtual impact without updating the storage module and rendering damaged-enhanced image(s) of the newly formed 3D polygon mesh(es) for display from a first field of view of the first station. At the second station, receiving the coordinates of the virtual impact. At the centralized processing unit, receiving the coordinates of the virtual impact, computing the newly formed 3D polygon mesh(es) from the received coordinates independently from the first station, in non-real-time priority processing and persistently updating the storage module with newly formed 3D polygon mesh(es).


Method and computer system for rendering damaged-enhanced images in a computer simulation comprising a computer generated environment. During the computer simulation, determining coordinates of a virtual impact having an effective radius on 3D polygon mesh(es) of the computer generated environment, identifying rendering faces of the 3D polygon mesh(es) affected by the virtual impact, clipping at runtime the affected rendering faces to a mathematically-defined subtraction shape computed considering the effective radius, computing newly formed 3D polygon mesh(es) and rendering at least one damaged-enhanced image for display comprising a subset of rendering faces of the newly formed 3D polygon mesh(es) using a visual texture, the subset being determined from a field of view of the computer simulation.

A method and a computer system for modeling, in a virtual environment of a computer simulation, virtual contaminants in a scene to be rendered. A processing module, using a graphical user interface on a display device, is used for defining, in a model, a first additive zone of the scene over which a virtual contaminant is to be added, defining, in the model, a second subtractive zone of the scene over which the virtual contaminant is to be at least partially removed, the second subtractive zone being at least partially enclosed within the first additive zone and a memory module is used for storing the model, the model being made available through a storage module for rendering the virtual contaminants on the scene in the computer simulation. A preview mode is used for launching the computer simulation at a rate lower than the expected rate of the computer simulation.

CAE Inc. | Date: 2016-10-24

Method and computer system for performing a computer simulation in which virtual contaminants are rendered on a scene thereof. A model defining a virtual environment of the computer simulation is loaded into memory module. The virtual environment defines a first additive zone and a second subtractive zone with vector paths therewithin and being at least partially enclosed within the first additive zone. An image generator module is used for adding a virtual contaminant over the first additive zone, removing, at least partially, the virtual contaminant within the second subtractive zone along the paths in 2D leaving a remaining virtual contaminant in the first additive zone and rendering an image for display comprising the remaining virtual contaminant in the virtual environment using a visual texture of the virtual contaminant. At least one border is defined along the paths for allowing smooth visual transition with one or more neighboring images.
