We’ve shared our updated logo and brand architecture, thoughts on the software-defined vehicle and a commitment to help realize the future software-defined vehicle. But how does it all fit together? merged the knowledge and experience of approximately 2,300 associates under the ETAS brand to develop and sell basic vehicle software, middleware, cloud services and development tools.
Simply put, a software-defined vehicle is a vehicle with features and functions that are enabled through software. This is different from today’s vehicles, which are primarily hardware-based platforms. A software-defined vehicle needs to simultaneously run multiple applications that are built on a standard operating system, similar to today’s computers and mobile phones. In automotive, this standard operating system is called middleware. As the operating system, middleware provides a foundation for basic functionality, including communication, memory management, scheduling, input/output/access to vehicle data, and Internet connectivity.
ETAS SCODE-CONGRA is an acausal modeling tool that enables dealing with math problems in a unique, graphical way. As constraint graphs reveal structural properties of equation-based models, in this article we examine a special structure: Algebraic loops.
Mathematical models of physical processes are essential in modern embedded function development. Having obtained a model that is based on equations, implementation often enough means to solve math puzzles – manually. If that’s not your idea of fun, find out how model implementation with ETAS SCODE-CONGRA is done in three quick steps.
The software of future vehicles will be developed differently. And the industry is making progress. You can see the beginning of a shift from today’s traditional, model-based software development approach and tools to the way classic IT develops software. We are moving toward DevOps,developer communities, open source, and cloud technologies.
