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.

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.

Visit us at COMVEC™ 2023

Meet Softing Automotive at COMVEC™ on September 19-21, 2023 in Schaumburg, Illinois, USA. The COMVEC™ Technology Connection is the convening point for the community that develops vehicles and equipment spanning the on-highway, off-highway (agriculture, construction, industrial), ground defense, and mining sectors.

Optimized Test Preparation – Increased Efficiency with Diagnostic Simulation

Due to the rapid increase in electronics and software in the vehicle, testing ECUs is becoming increasingly complex. It is no longer only individual systems that have to be tested, but also the interactions between the systems. One possible key to the solution is test automation. While good results are already being achieved in many areas of vehicle electronics through simulations, this step still needs to be taken in vehicle diagnostics. It is obvious: An external device, the diagnostic tester, is developed or adapted to perform the test - but the necessary counterpart in the form of an ECU or vehicle is missing to test the tester. With Softing TCS, a configurable diagnostic simulation with real communication is available in time, which considerably accelerates the creation of automated tests.

Testing for the Mobility of the Future – Arnold NextG Relies on Softing's Testing and Telematics Solutions

Functional safety is the focus for Arnold NextG in the development of the unique NX NextMotion central control unit. For this reason, the technology forge Arnold NextG relies on the innovative solutions of Softing Automotive for the development of the control unit for automated driving!

Remote Expert Support with Softing TDX

Nowadays, modern vehicles are becoming more and more dynamic due to data and software-driven developments, which leads to more complex maintenance and repair processes for future vehicle generations. The acute, further increasing shortage of skilled workers is making this situation even more glaring! To close the large gap between demand and locally available expertise in workshops and mobile service teams, Remote Expert Support represents an innovative solution. Remote Expert Support is already integrated in our Softing TDX diagnostic tester. Service technicians on site can thus be supported remotely by an expert during complex maintenance and repair procedures.
