E/E in the Vehicle Manufacturing of the Future

The automotive industry has realized that software is assuming an increasingly important role in vehicle technology. In the process, the number of lines of code in vehicles has risen many times over. To meet these requirements, the industry is cooperating more and more with technology companies. In this partnership, cloud technologies and mobile platforms are being explored to optimize software processes and digitize vehicle production. In the future, autonomous vehicle systems are conceivable that perform their own tests, updates and coding.

Visit us at the 16th Conference on Diagnostics in Dresden, Germany

Softing Automotive welcomes you again this year to the Diagnostics Conference in Dresden. On May 23 and 24, you will learn everything about diagnostics in mechatronic vehicle systems. Among others, Jürgen Heilmeier, Manager Innovation & Test at Softing Automotive, and Markus Steffelbauer, Head of Product Management at Softing Automitive, will present the innovations in SOVD in development - from ECU to vehicle.

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.

Standardization Drives Quality and Efficiency in Vehicle Diagnostics – Interview with Professor Dr.-Ing. Goß

The fields of innovation, electric and alternative drives, as well as increasing digitalization and automated driving, are of particular importance in the mobility of the future. We would like to know the professional view of an independent expert from the field of vehicle systems technology on this topic. To this end, we have arranged an interview with Prof. Dr.-Ing. Stefan Goß and would like to know how he views current developments in the automotive industry and their impact on standardization in vehicle diagnostics.

Free Webinar "OBDII goes UDS" | Recording online!

Webinar "OBDII goes UDS" – Future Legislation, Diagnostics and Testing

The on-demand webinar shows the latest CAN technology enhancements (CAN, CAN FD, CAN XL) support UDS, what the new SAE J1979 regulations mean in practice for diagnostic testing, and how OEMs and Tier 1s can benefit. It will also provide an introduction to coupling Kvaser's U100 interface with Softing's TDX diagnostic test development suite for on-road vehicle and mobile machinery maintenance. The latter includes protocol templates for UDS that, once developed, can be reused.

Consistent Vehicle History: Utilizing Repair Data in the Vehicle Life Cycle

Consistent Vehicle History: Utilizing Repair Data in the Vehicle Life Cycle with Softing TDX

The digitization and automation of vehicles and mobile machines is advancing at an ever faster pace, driven by greater efficiency and convenience. The functions required for this are becoming increasingly complex and can only be implemented across systems. In the event of a fault, this makes clear fault localization and rapid rectification virtually impossible without suitable support. However, in order to achieve success quickly, Softing TDX enables every single diagnostic step and its result to be recorded and documented centrally in a database.
