New Solution Spotlight "Automated ECU Communication Test"

With easy to create automated communication tests, the large number of ECUs and their variants as well as the wide variety of diagnostic services and parameterizations can be conveniently verified. With the Test Case Editor in Softing OTX.studio, the validation of ECUs is created quickly and easily by using an intuitive drag & drop function. It is also possible to visualize the results in XML or HTML format and map the statistics of the test campaigns. In this video you can see how simple it is to create ECU communication tests.

Vehicle Data in Human Readable Form with Ed & Ted – Get it Done!

A fully equipped vehicle produces several gigabits of data per second. In particular, this data provides information about the technical condition of the vehicle. In raw format and also in standardized data description formats, however, this data is generally not comprehensible to humans. Therefore, they are interpreted by software and converted into human-readable information. Softing's Smart Diagnostic Engine (SDA) is a platform-independent runtime system that interprets and executes diagnostic functions, simple diagnostic services and even complex and automated diagnostic sequences for precisely this purpose.

"Solution Spotlights" | Get to know our new short videos!

Our new video series "Solution Spotlights" is now available for you. Our trainers use practical examples to introduce you to the challenges of automotive electronics as well as concrete solution approaches and their benefits. The short videos are not only suitable for experts, but also for beginners from the areas of development, production as well as aftersales. Each topic is explained in an easy-to-understand manner and is also clearly illustrated by a short demo of the use case from practice.

Efficient Vehicle Simulation with Ed & Ted – Get it Done!

Simulations are used to increase efficiency and minimize risks throughout the vehicle life cycle. Solutions for diagnostic simulation of ECUs and vehicles enable process-safe regression testing of diagnostic testers ("test the tester"), facilitate the commissioning of test sequences, and provide the best possible training for employees, as all required vehicle variants, including fault patterns, can be easily simulated.

Parallel Access to ECUs and Vehicles with Ed & Ted – Get it Done!

Increase efficiency with parallel access to ECUs and vehicles! Discover how parallel testing and updating of ECU software can help you significantly enhance engineering efficiency, improve vehicle quality, increase the flexibility of software management, and enable faster adaptation to changing requirements.

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.

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.

Test the Tester – Regression Testing Made Simple

Test the Tester - Regression Testing Made Simple

The complexity in the E/E architecture continues to increase - and with it the required test effort. This applies both with regard to the validation of functionalities and to ongoing regression tests of the test methods. The latter are of particular importance due to the strong creation of variants of vehicles, both in terms of functionality and via software and hardware variants released over time. Different motorizations, for example, are generated both via different engines and via coding.
