Vehicles are turning into software-defined, motorized high-performance computers with an ever greater number of functions and are producing masses of data in the process. In particular, this data provides information on the technical state of the vehicle. But in its raw state, this data is not usually comprehensible to just anyone. Therefore, it is interpreted by software using standardized data descriptions and converted into human readable information.
It is precisely for this purpose that Softing offers the Smart Diagnostic Engine (SDE): a platform-independent runtime system which interprets and runs diagnostic functions, simple diagnostic services and even complex and automated diagnostic runs. It is based on the common standardized diagnostic formats ODX and OTX, adding to them a simple-to-use functional API. The Smart Diagnostic API (SDA) focuses on the function-oriented application of diagnostics without requiring any special diagnostic knowledge. At the same time, the SDE enables remote access of the API interface and thus the future-proof use, among other things, for Software Over-the-Air (SOTA) applications. Platform independence ensures continuous reusability in the product life cycle - in any tools, in the cloud, but also directly in the vehicle.
This is made possible by the universal reusability of diagnostic data and sequences as well as high-performance diagnostics independent of time and location by a particularly compact, remote-capable runtime format.
