Fix errors at the root
In an exclusive interview with the Hanser automotive, the chairman of the ETAS board, Friedhelm Pickhard information on the ETAS strategy for virtualization solutions for developing, testing, and application of embedded systems: ETAS' objective is to improve the development of software for electronic control units and make it more efficient. Replacing real-world development …
Shaping the Future of Automotive Software
The automobile industry is currently undergoing significant changes driven by market globalization, the worldwide challenges posed by the call for ecological and safe private transport and the powerful, worldwide reach of communication technologies on the Internet. At the same time, however, the sophisticated systems must remain affordable for the end …
The virtual ECU for AUTOSAR
With a new, EVE (ETAS Virtual ECU) called solution, AUTOSAR application software components and basic software modules from different sources can be integrated into virtual control units. The use of virtual control units enables early validation and calibration of ECU software on the PC, thus increasing the efficiency and quality in the software development process.
The interface is key
With the ETAS ETK ECU interface, several hundred signals from multiple control units in the vehicle can be simultaneously captured. Conversely, data can be transmitted in real time to the control unit. To iteratively refine, validate, and calibrate new control algorithms in the vehicle, they can be easily outsourced to efficient prototyping systems which can be coupled …
Tools for the development of demanding vehicle functions
ETAS provides tools with which the software of complex electronic vehicle functions can be developed, tested and integrated into the vehicle. In developing our tool solutions, we focus on the relevant standards and the current current technological, methodological and business trends. The article discusses concrete examples.
Validating and calibrating with Virtual ECUs
With the new solution ETAS Virtual ECU virtual control units can be generated on the basis of ECU code. The use of virtual ECUs leads to more efficient development of automotive software with higher quality because function and software development steps, ECU tests and ECU calibration procedures can be done in virtual environments on the PC.
Analyze control units immediately in the vehicle
Automotive engineers use the INCA software to validate the functions of engine control units: They use it to record all data and parameters, to visualize, analyze and edit them. The mobile KiBox combustion analysis system has an interface to INCA, so that it is possible to acquire combustion analysis and control unit signals synchronously.
Prototyping, Measurement, and Calibration of Control Models
Automotive control functions are often specified in MATLAB®/Simulink®. With the deployment of prototyping methods, the development of control functions becomes more efficient, rapid, and reliable. Through prototyping, users can identify and correct errors early. This avoids time-intensive and costly iterations during software development. …
Real-time prototyping with the multi-core PC
With the development of new, energy-efficient powertrains and the adaptation of vehicles to the requirements of new markets, a variety of functions of electronic controls must be adjusted in the vehicle, extended or even developed from scratch. With suitable prototyping tools, the behavior of new features can be tested already in the concept phase of …
Validation of controller models in the vehicle
Control functions for automotive control units are often modeled in MATLAB®/Simulink®. Through the use of prototyping methods, the development of those functions becomes more efficient, faster and more reliable. By means of prototyping, errors can be recognized and , corrected early in the development process and thereby the number of time-consuming …
