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.
Join them on their journey through the world of automotive electronics and discover new ways to increase efficiency and quality in development, production and service.
Be one step ahead with Softing's diagnostic and test solutions.
ECU diagnostics is crucial to meet the growing demands on vehicle performance, safety and environmental friendliness. As ECUs are becoming increasingly complex and have multi-layered communication levels, a detailed insight into their functions is essential. The diagnosis of control units is therefore one of the central tasks in the development, production and servicing of vehicles. This is the only way to identify, analyze and solve potential problems quickly, efficiently and in good time.
The ongoing networking of vehicles with their environment opens up completely new possibilities. Remote access across the entire vehicle life cycle enables considerable time and cost savings as well as profitable business models by extending the vehicle into the cloud. Remote engineering, i.e. remote access to test objects, enables the efficient use of global resources in diagnostic development and test procedures, for example. For example, development projects can be worked on in parallel by globally distributed teams, regardless of location and time.
Reading out and documenting ECUs, vehicles, test setups as well as test fleets is very time-consuming. Softing offers an elegant solution for this, allowing repetitive, time-consuming tasks to be performed in parallel and thus more efficiently. Learn how parallel testing and updating can significantly accelerate the development cycle, improve the quality of vehicles, and respond quickly to changing requirements.
Diagnostic Simulations are used to increase efficiency and minimize risks throughout the vehicle lifecycle. 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.
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. Softing's Smart Diagnostic Engine interprets these vehicle data and translates it into human-readable information.
