Resources for Empowering Tomorrow’s Automotive Software

We deliver a comprehensive, end-to-end software-defined vehicle portfolio, comprising the required in-vehicle software stack, holistic cybersecurity, and cloud-based operations services – enabling fast and data-driven development, efficient deployment and management, as well as safe and secure operation of vehicle software at scale.

The Keys to it All – the Virtual ECU and Software Engineering

Simply put, the virtual ECU is a digital twin of the real ECU. It contains all the necessary components and functions that replicate the behavior of a real ECU without the dependency on hardware. This allows the virtual ECU to be run anywhere – on a standard PC or laptop or the cloud. Ideally, the virtual ECU is developed in parallel to the real ECU software that outlines how components work together and functions behave in the vehicle.

Virtual Calibration – Reducing Resources, Time

Virtual calibration addresses OEMs’ shortage of budget, time and people with the right skills to properly perform all the calibration activities needed to launch a new vehicle. It also provides value in product development as well as post-production where it can help avoid costly warranty fixes by finding the root cause of the issue.

Automotive Testing in the Virtual World

As vehicles become increasingly complex and the software content grows, vehicle development experts are relying on simulation or virtual testing of vehicle systems to recreate real-world scenarios, eliminating the need to develop a physical part or test vehicle to identify and correct problems.

Measure More, All the Time

As OEMs gradually reduce the number of vehicles available for calibration drives, Calibration engineers spend less time in the vehicle for their calibration activities, while still having to complete their work in time.  As a result, it becomes ever more important to record as much data as possible in the shorter time span that is available.

AUTOSAR Security – A Holistic Approach

The automotive industry is facing a dramatic transformation that brings fundamental changes to vehicle E/E architectures in the connected and automated driving environment. Designs are shifting from many application-specific ECUs to a few high-performance domain controllers with bundled functionalities. This technical engineering trend imposes a consolidation of automotive cybersecurity and a change of the AUTOSAR architecture.

New Container-Build Toolbox for Simulink, a handy addition to ETAS EHANDBOOK

The efficient calibration of automotive functions requires a comprehensive understanding of the logical structure and mutual dependencies of the embedded software components.  Because of that, having ECU software documentation that is easy to understand and to handle is essential in modern vehicle projects.

ETAS’ award-winning EHANDBOOK is a smarter approach to handling and extracting relevant information from the usually extensive ECU documentation. EHANDBOOK helps calibrators to better understand the ECU functions, perform calibration tasks faster and debug issues more efficiently.

Ethical Automotive Hacking Simplified (Part 2 of 2)

Maybe you want to learn about car communication, participate in automotive capture-the-flag (CTF) events, or you’re worried about the overall security protection of the car. Where do you start? We’ll cover five phases of hacking a car – ethically – and what to consider in each phase. This is part two of a two-part blog post.
