Automotive Trends such as electric and autonomous driving are leading to paradigm shifts in the E/E architecture. This in turn is leading to new challenges in vehicle diagnostics, but at the same time is opening up opportunities for improving the quality of diagnostics and increasing efficiency. there will be new ways of diagnosis with even cloud-based systems.
Softing published an technical article "Integrated Diagnosis for SOTA" about the advantages of using a lean diagnostic runtime system on a high-performance vehicle interface: Vehicles of the future will require complex vehicle diagnostics. To satisfy these requirements, Softing now offers a new VCI generation as well as an easy-to-use software component which can be implemented universally for running diagnostic tasks. The combination of the two products covers new use cases and offers users particular benefits.
Diagnostics over Internet Protocol (DoIP) is increasingly finding its way into modern vehicle architectures. The Ethernet-based communication protocol is a prerequisite for highly efficient vehicle access by the diverse range of applications in vehicle diagnostics and measurement data recording.
