Efficient Fault Simulation – Automated, documented short-circuit and open load tests of ECU on-board diagnostics

Efficient Fault Simulation by Softing

In daily operation, ECUs in the vehicle are exposed to a wide range of environmental influences, such as vibrations, strongly fluctuating ambient temperatures and high humidity. The components must therefore be able to handle all conceivable faults. For the test, these faults are simulated on the ECU pin and the respective behavior and diagnostic entry documented. Typically, such fault simulations are used for function tests during development, for testing, release and validation of ECUs and components, as well as for integration validation during HiL testing or at the Functional Mock-Up (FMU).

With the xTCU telematics gateway from Globalmatix in combination with Memotec measurement technology – comprehensive information everywhere in real time. In racing, it is often just tiny details that make the difference between victory and defeat. In addition to the driver’s skill, it also depends on the racing team having the appropriate expertise. Among other things, data acquisition and measurement technology is installed in the vehicle in order to constantly monitor and ultimately optimize it.

It is a long journey from the start of engineering to the installation of all vehicle components and ECUs in the production vehicle. Comprehensive testing of the electronic components during the entire engineering process is essential. This is the only way to thoroughly safeguard and optimize hardware and software functions. Errors can be detected and remedied quickly – the earlier the better.

SOVD – The Diagnostic Standard of Tomorrow

SOVD - Service Oriented Vehicle Diagnostics

Due to current megatrends such as autonomous driving, significantly higher computing power is required in the vehicle than can be provided by today's ECUs. Consequently high-performance computers (HPCs) are being installed in the vehicle to implement both centralized control and diagnostic functions. Standardization of the interface is therefore an obvious step, and is currently being carried out in ASAM e.V. under the name SOVD (Service Oriented Vehicle Diagnostics).

Invitation to the Virtual Softing Automotive Convention | May 5-6, 2021

Invitation to the Virtual “Softing Automotive Convention” | May 5-6, 2021

Invitation to the Virtual Softing Automotive Convention on May 5-6, 2021 | Due to the severe restriction of personal contact options since last year, we had to completely rethink events and customer appointments. With a creative digitalization concept based on current technology, we have created a virtual space that offers us the ideal event location. It allows our customers and partners to experience software solutions and exhibits in the office or at home.
