BMS-LABCAR is a Hardware-in-the-Loop (HiL) solution which mimics signal-level behavior of individual battery cells and battery packs across a variety of challenging conditions. You can think of BMS-LABCAR as a Virtual Battery for the testing of Battery Management Systems.
Zombie code are those pieces of “undead” software and code designs that nobody wants to change, or the change requests are in the backlog due to late discovery. This article contrasts a traditional embedded software development workflow with a workflow using ETAS SCODE-ANALYZER which results in a 100% complete and consistent design without bugs or superfluous code.
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.
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 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.
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.
These days, COSYM allows us to continue software development without skipping a beat and without having to haul hardware from work to home office. As we return to our office/lab environments, COSYM will help us meet the demands of ADAS development.
