LHP Showcase: Rubbing Elbows, Kicking Tires, and Learning the Ropes
The LHP Platform Team spent the first week of April holding a Product Showcase at the LHPES Detroit office in Pontiac, MI. The showcase included workshops, seminars, and demos to get our customers up to speed on the latest tech to accelerate embedded controls development. The theme of this showcase was to explore LHP’s model-based development workflow, with an integrated product line, that enables rapid prototyping, desktop simulation, and hardware-in-the-loop V&V.
The LHP product line was displayed and demonstrated for all visitors. Customers were able to run model-in-the-loop, software-in-the-loop, and hardware-in-the-loop applications with our Panthera rapid controls prototyping suite (RCP), rapid prototype units (RPU), desktop test environments (DTE), and HIL test platforms (HTP). Tours, walkthroughs, and demos, allowed LHP and our customers to interact and discuss applications.
Lunch and Learns
We held a rotating schedule of lunch and learn sessions, where we got to break bread and build skills with participants. The two primary lunch and learn topics were: Rapid Prototyping Workflow for Embedded Controls, and Hardware-In-the-Loop (HIL) Test workflow.
While we were in the Motor City, we took the opportunity to visit customers and demonstrate products at their sites. Customers were able to see the RPU and the RCP Evaluation Kit in action. We met with our National Instruments partners and other customers to discuss relevant applications.
We held some Panthera training classes for new users. Participants were able to complete the training workbooks, which taught users how to build basic Simulink models and use Panthera to run those models on National Instruments hardware in LHP’s RCP Evaluation Kit automotive control platform. Not only did the trainees gain valuable skills through Panthera practice, but the Panthera product developers worked alongside the Panthera users to get useful feedback with the voice of the customer.
Socializing and Networking
Our favorite part of a showcase like this is spending time with our customers and friends, enjoying meals, networking, watching movies, and sharing good times. We learned much about our customers, and they learned much about LHP and our products. LHP is growing in Detroit!
