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.

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.

The First Diagnostic Simulation Boxes are on Their Way to the Customer!

The first diagnostic simulation boxes are on their way to the customer

Another great milestone for the TCS team: Just in time for the Christmas season, the first diagnostic simulations are on their way to the customer. Markus Steffelbauer, Head of Product Management at Softing Automotive, couldn't be prouder: "Our thanks go to the entire team, which has developed a solution in a really short time that will greatly simplify the work of our customers. In the next few months, we'll be adding a few more exciting features!"

NEW: Softing DTS.monaco 9.03 with Remote Interfaces, Parallel Diagnostics and Dynamic VCI Handling

Overview Remote Use Cases with Softing DTS and VIN|ING 2000

We are pleased to be able to inform you that a new version of our “Diagnostic Tool Set” is in the starting blocks. Version 9.03 of the diagnostic tester Softing DTS.monaco contains lots of new features that will make your work even simpler. Thanks to the integration of a new connect plug-in (dynamic VCI handling), both the integration and configuration of a VCI are now more convenient than before – regardless of whether the VCI is local or remote.

Digital Assets in Aftersales: Consistency in Data and Processes

Softing TDX: Digital Assets in Aftersales

Targeted maintenance and repair play an extremely important role in increasingly complex vehicles. The paradigm “fix it right the first time” avoids extra costs and increases customer satisfaction. Alongside intuitive operation of the repair shop tester, the seamless integration and intensive use of digital technologies are of particular importance.

New Solution for Efficient Diagnostic Simulation – Softing TCS Now Available

Softing TCS – The Configurable Diagnostic Simulation

The modern diagnostic simulation Softing TCS is the solution whenever the corresponding counterpart for testing is not yet or no longer available. This is typically the case when validating functionalities in early phases of component and vehicle engineering, conducting tester regression tests or when using in a teaching facility in which many different test objects in a wide range of variants are required for training purposes.

Efficient Diagnostic Testing with Simulation

Efficient Diagnostic Testing with Simulation

Testing and diagnosing modern vehicles is becoming increasingly complex. The evaluation of the data recorded during operation plays an important role here, as it forms the basis for diagnosing any errors that may occur. In the article, Softing shows how simulation methods can be used efficiently for the use of this data and the preparation of testing.

Diagnostic Test Meets Simulation

Softing TCS Diagnostic Test Meets Simulation

Softing TCS offers a modern diagnostic simulation consisting of the simulation hardware, a configuration application and an API for integrating the hardware into test automations. The hardware is flexibly tailored to current and future requirements due to the multicore Linux platform used. It has an OBD socket and thus provides a complete diagnostic view of a vehicle. Alternatively, CAN can also be accessed as usual via a D-SUB socket. Simulation files for different ECUs or vehicles are brought to the device via a LAN connection or USB stick.
