Efficient Software Hooks
Honda R&D Co., Ltd. Automobile R&D Center implements new EHOOKS tool
In ordinary ECU development, ECU functions are determined through repeated consultation between automakers and ECU suppliers on the subject of specifications. How to improve process efficiency and reduce labor hours was a major concern for both Honda and its suppliers.
EHOOKS is a tool that generates bypass hook code at a machine language level without a need for source code. Bypass hooks formerly generated by ECU suppliers can now be implemented by OEMs.
The time formerly required for source code modifications by the ECU supplier for an ECU development project could be shortened from several months to as little as a few days.
