Remote Access over the Entire Vehicle Life Cycle with Ed & Ted

Remote Vehicle Access offers an innovative solution for vehicle diagnostics, measuring and testing ECUs. Using wireless communication technologies, electronic vehicle systems can be monitored, controlled and diagnosed remotely. This enables vehicle manufacturers and workshops to quickly detect and rectify faults in the vehicle without having to be physically on site.

New Diagnostic Interface VIN|ING 800

We expanded our Vehicle Communication Interface (VCI) portfolio with a universal, robust diagnostic interface via CAN/FD. The diagnostic interface VIN|ING 800 unites state-of-the-art hardware design for CAN/FD and maximum sturdiness with all-round impact protection at a highly attractive price. For many service applications requiring just one CAN interface, this device is the perfect choice as it provides a lean and at the same time powerful interface from the application to the vehicle. VIN|ING 800 can also be deployed to efficiently solve communication tasks in the engineering of vehicle systems.

Smart Diagnostics and Testing with Ed & Ted – Get it Done!

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.

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.

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.

Meet us at the SAE International WCX 2023

Meet Softing Automotive at the WCX World Congress Experience, April 18-20, 2023 in Detroit, MI, USA. On April 20 at 1:30 pm, Softing Automotive's Director of Business Development, Peter Subke, will speak about "UDSonCAN and OBDonUDS: CAN-Based Application Layer Protocols for the Diagnostic Communication between the In-Vehicle CAN and MVCI-Based External Test Equipment".

Join our presentation "Comparison of the Application Layer Protocols SAE J1979-2, SAE J1979-3 and ISO 27145" at the SAE OBD Symposium in Prague

SAE OBD Symposium 2023 presentation about "Comparison of current and future OBD Protocols (SAE/ISO)" by Peter Subke

Shape the future of on-board monitoring and calibration systems. This presentation starts with a short overview of the legacy SAE J1979/ ISO 15031 that have been in use for the communication of an OBD scan tool and the OSD-Il system of combustion engine vehicles for decades. In addition, the presentation will provide an introduction to UDS and demonstrate how to use the unified diagnostic services for OBD on UDS, ZEV on UDS and globally harmonized OBD.
