Fast Support – Get it Done!

Softing Automotive offers first-class, personal support, fast solutions and expert advice in vehicle electronics and diagnostics. We support you with diagnostic and test tasks, including data preparation and the integration of our solutions into your infrastructure. You can also benefit from our expertise through training courses, free webinars, video and information material.

Optimized Test Preparation with a Diagnostic Simulation

Simulation in test preparation enables the verification of test routines and the entire test setup, which reduces the time required for troubleshooting. ODX-based diagnostic simulation improves test sequences, minimises test effort and ensures accurate fault detection. In our short Solution Spotlight video, Thomas Blocher explains the use case and shows how an ODX-based simulation project can be easily created and customised with Softing TCS.admin.

Expertise through Training – Get it Done!

Interested in learning more about vehicle diagnostics and testing, flash programming, standards like OTX and ODX or data communication? Then our training program is exactly what you are looking for! As a specialist for the entire life cycle of electronic control units and vehicle systems, we support beginners and professionals with excellent training in the areas of diagnostics, testing and communication.

Reference Book | Vehicle Diagnostics – Basics, Bus Systems, Protocols, Applications

We congratulate our esteemed colleague Peter Subke on the publication of his third technical book "Vehicle Diagnostics – Fundamentals, Bus Systems, Protocols, Applications." The book supports engineers and technicians from development, testing, production and service at vehicle manufacturers and suppliers who deal with mechatronic systems, their data exchange and diagnostic protocols or services and who are interested in innovations based on networked and intelligent electronic systems. This specialised book is also an excellent source of information for students of electrical engineering, automotive engineering and computer science at universities, technical colleges and vocational schools.

Free Webinar | Diagnostic Communication with Zero Emission Vehicles

In this webinar you will learn the basics of diagnostic communication (UDS, DoCAN, DoIP). It also covers how UDS is used for diagnostic communication with a ZEV to read the VIN. Furthermore, a practical demo provides a graphical user interface of a diagnostic service tester.

Meet us at the 17th Conference on Diagnostics

The 17th Conference on Diagnostics in Mechatronic Vehicle Systems will take place in Dresden on 14 and 15 May 2024. This year's topics will once again revolve around current challenges and new technologies in the field of testing, inspection and diagnosis of E/E systems in the vehicle in connection with the networked infrastructure, new assistance functions and the challenges of fulfilling legal requirements and standards. On Wednesday 15 May, Kay Lübkert (Project Manager at Softing Automotive) and Jürgen Heilmeier (Manager Innovation & Test, Softing Automotive) will provide you with exclusive insights into the requirements for vehicle access in the software-based vehicles.

Standardization in Vehicle Diagnostics with Ed & Ted – Get it Done!

The automotive industry is moving towards environmentally friendly drives and digital, automated functions. This increases the complexity of vehicle electronics and the demands on communication. Standardization in vehicle diagnostics is therefore becoming increasingly important in order to simplify engineering, production and service and to ensure interoperability and cost-effectiveness over the entire vehicle life cycle.

Softing Automotive at the i-Mobility 2024

On 4th April 2024, the i-Mobility event was inaugurated in Stuttgart by Transport Minister Winfried Hermann. Subsequently, Minister Hermann visited the booth for the research project AMEISE, supported by the Ministry of Transport Baden-Württemberg. It was an honor to discuss with him the potentials of autonomous driving in public transportation! The goal of the "AMEISE" project is the development and research of highly automated, emission-free vehicles for passenger transport in public transport and the exploration of success factors for the faster spread of autonomous driving in public transport in Baden-Württemberg.
