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 Validation and Verification

Virtual Validation and Verification for Embedded Systems

Virtualization of validation and verification will result in better testing, faster. It’s another solution in our continuous development of our new world of working from home. Set up a virtual vehicle, put in the virtual controllers and let he work begin – all with little human oversight.

Virtual Calibration

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.
