The Hardware in the Loop simulation is an useful instrument to simulate complex mechanical systems in which the subject of the test is an hardware component. The results of the simulation, closer to the real behavior of the system, are the main advantage of this approach. This application is often used during the design process to test components of a complex mechanical system before the development of the prototype (e.g. embedded systems). The literature examples show, in general, mathematical model finalized to the application. The objective of this work is focused on the development of a generic Multi-Body software for HIL applications. Some simulations examples, the dynamic of a slider-crank and of a McPherson suspension, are presented at the end of the paper.
