Softing envisions secure, reliable predictive maintenance

TOHE Article 08/2020 Softing envisions secure, reliable predictive maintenance

Modern heavy-duty vehicles, such as trucks and buses but also forestry and agricultural machines or construction equipment, are packed with E/E components that support selfdiagnostic functions and increase the quality of maintenance, service, and repair processes. In service workshops, “right the first try” reduces expensive downtime and saves a lot of money. This objective is supported by a process that captures the already generated in-vehicle data and sends it to a cloud server for analysis and the creation of vehicle- and/or fleet-specific predictive maintenance sequences. The sequences support the service technician in the predictive maintenance process

Technical Paper on In-Vehicle Diagnostic Systems

Technical Paper on In-Vehicle Diagnostics Systems

New SAE International technical paper "In-Vehicle Diagnostic System for Prognostics and OTA Updates of Automated / Autonomous Vehicles" by Peter Subke, Muzafar Moshref and Julian Erber (Softing Automotive) – The increasing complexity of microcontroller-based automotive E/E systems that control road-vehicles and non-road mobile machinery comes with increased self-diagnosis functions and diagnosability via external test equipment (diagnostic tester).

Moving Forward into the Future - Diagnostics in Global Engineering Teams

Diagnostics in Global Engineering Teams

The automoive industry is facing major challenges due to the complexity of electric and autonomous vehicles of the future. As a result, work is taking place on global teams, resulting in turn in massive changes in both engineering and the tool landscape used.

Visualizing measurement and actuator interaction with Softing DTS.monaco

Softing DTS.monaco: visualizing measurements

The visually meaningful representation of measurement parameters and their thresholds is necessary particularly at the test bench and in vehicle validation. Softing DTS.monaco helps visualize various states regardless of whether a NOx sensor has to fulfill its values within a certain time or if it has to be indicated that pressure or temperature has reached a threshold value.

Tracking Down Errors: The Perfect Diagnostic Tool in Vehicle Engineering – Whatever the Application Case

Article in "OEM&Lieferant": Tracking Down Errors - The Perfect Diagnostic Tool in Vehicle Engineering

Vehicle engineering is facing a range of challenges. This is why today manufacturers and their suppliers work together at a global level at which they need to be able to exchange data safely all over the world. The range of vehicles is constantly diversifying while the engineering cycles are becoming ever shorter. Vehicles must be maintained over the entire product life cycle which means that more and more tasks have to be completed in an ever shorter time.

SAVE THE DATE – ELIV Congress 2019

Visit Softing at the ELIV Congress 2019!

Meet us at the international congress for automotive electronics ELIV on October 16-17, 2019 in Bonn, Germany.
