Optimized Test Preparation – Increased Efficiency with Diagnostic Simulation

Due to the rapid increase in electronics and software in the vehicle, testing ECUs is becoming increasingly complex. It is no longer only individual systems that have to be tested, but also the interactions between the systems. One possible key to the solution is test automation. While good results are already being achieved in many areas of vehicle electronics through simulations, this step still needs to be taken in vehicle diagnostics. It is obvious: An external device, the diagnostic tester, is developed or adapted to perform the test - but the necessary counterpart in the form of an ECU or vehicle is missing to test the tester. With Softing TCS, a configurable diagnostic simulation with real communication is available in time, which considerably accelerates the creation of automated tests.

Testing for the Mobility of the Future – Arnold NextG Relies on Softing's Testing and Telematics Solutions

Functional safety is the focus for Arnold NextG in the development of the unique NX NextMotion central control unit. For this reason, the technology forge Arnold NextG relies on the innovative solutions of Softing Automotive for the development of the control unit for automated driving!

Remote Expert Support with Softing TDX

Nowadays, modern vehicles are becoming more and more dynamic due to data and software-driven developments, which leads to more complex maintenance and repair processes for future vehicle generations. The acute, further increasing shortage of skilled workers is making this situation even more glaring! To close the large gap between demand and locally available expertise in workshops and mobile service teams, Remote Expert Support represents an innovative solution. Remote Expert Support is already integrated in our Softing TDX diagnostic tester. Service technicians on site can thus be supported remotely by an expert during complex maintenance and repair procedures.

Remote Access over the Entire Vehicle Life Cycle with Ed & Ted

Remote Vehicle Access offers an innovative solution for vehicle diagnostics, measuring and testing ECUs. Using wireless communication technologies, electronic vehicle systems can be monitored, controlled and diagnosed remotely. This enables vehicle manufacturers and workshops to quickly detect and rectify faults in the vehicle without having to be physically on site.

New Diagnostic Interface VIN|ING 800

We expanded our Vehicle Communication Interface (VCI) portfolio with a universal, robust diagnostic interface via CAN/FD. The diagnostic interface VIN|ING 800 unites state-of-the-art hardware design for CAN/FD and maximum sturdiness with all-round impact protection at a highly attractive price. For many service applications requiring just one CAN interface, this device is the perfect choice as it provides a lean and at the same time powerful interface from the application to the vehicle. VIN|ING 800 can also be deployed to efficiently solve communication tasks in the engineering of vehicle systems.

Smart Diagnostics and Testing with Ed & Ted – Get it Done!

In a world where vehicle electronics is constantly evolving, especially via software, engineers and technicians are constantly faced with new challenges. Ed & Ted, two experts in the fields of diagnostics and testing, take on the demanding tasks over the entire vehicle lifecycle. But while Ed works with tried-and-tested methods and technologies, Ted is already relying on Softing's innovative solutions, which make his work much easier and more efficient.

E/E in the Vehicle Manufacturing of the Future

The automotive industry has realized that software is assuming an increasingly important role in vehicle technology. In the process, the number of lines of code in vehicles has risen many times over. To meet these requirements, the industry is cooperating more and more with technology companies. In this partnership, cloud technologies and mobile platforms are being explored to optimize software processes and digitize vehicle production. In the future, autonomous vehicle systems are conceivable that perform their own tests, updates and coding.
