Innovative Telematics Solution for the New Dimension of Digital Mixed Fleet Management

"Connected Car" and "Shared Mobility" continue to be among the biggest trends in the automotive industry. The potential hidden is enormous. By providing innovative and smart functions, the driver's user experience will be increasingly enhanced. For managers of mixed fleets, there are countless opportunities to operate even more efficiently and cost-effectively. 

Softing subsidiary GlobalmatiX has developed an innovative telematics solution for this purpose that enables all conceivable "car to cloud to company" use cases of the digital mixed fleet management of the future. Regardless of the vehicle brand, the GlobalmatiX telematics interface is able to record and analyze all data measured by the vehicle control units, supplemented by state-of-the-art GPS tracking, in the highest quality and transmit it to the fleet operator "over the air" in almost real time. And all this with an unprecedented level of security against unauthorized access by third parties through a patented security procedure. Enabled by high-resolution vehicle data and artificial intelligence in the cloud, a qualified analysis of events and changes to the ideal state is possible.

Timm Burmeister will present you some of the countless use cases of the Globalmatix telematics solution for as well as projects that have already been successfully implemented at customers, such as:

  • Remote vehicle diagnostics, maintenance and repair
  • Predictive Maintenance
  • Detection and analysis of minor damages incl. damage claim report
  • Provision of an electronic, comprehensive vehicle file Car-CV
  • Vehicle GPS tracking with GEO fencing
  • Keyless vehicle access
  • Usage-based insurance (UBI)

Test the Tester – Simulation of DoIP Control Units as a New Challenge

In the course of the 'ECU Lifecycle', the required control unit or its communication environment is often not yet available (e.g. in test preparation) or no longer available (e.g. in tester regression tests). In the first case, the creation of test sequences is delayed due to the lack of a suitable communication partner. In the second case, regression tests, e.g. on workshop testers, cannot be performed to the required test depth. In both cases, simulation is the tried and tested method of increasing efficiency and minimizing risk. The simulation of DoIP ECUs via Ethernet poses new challenges here, which arise from the protocol and infrastructure. 

Markus Steffelbauer, Head of Product Management at Softing, will show you our solution for diagnostic simulation of CAN ECUs and DoIP communication – for process-safe regression testing as well as easy commissioning of test sequences.

Benefits of Parallel Remote Access in Vehicle Development – Demonstration of Various Use Cases

The development of control units and vehicles is globally distributed over several locations – increasingly also from the home office. In addition, the tasks to be completed for each test carrier or test vehicle are repeated during testing and verifications. Developers must therefore be able to access globally distributed vehicles and test vehicles. On the other hand, it is important that repetitive tasks run efficiently, i.e. in parallel. 

The solution for maximum efficiency in development is therefore a combination of parallel and remote access. In addition to simple remote testing, this allows, for example, parallel status queries for an entire test fleet or parallel test bench updates. The prerequisite for this, in addition to secure connection management, is a fully comprehensive, remote-capable developer application.

Diagnostic Applications Manager Mirko Braun uses the example of the special "Multitest" interface in the Softing DTS.monaco development tester to show you the possibilities of parallel remote access to a remote test bench as well as to a vehicle.

Perfect Match – Individual Workshop Tester Meets Rugged CAN/CAN FD Interface

Worldwide service networks are available for vehicles and mobile machinery. The primary goal is to reduce expensive downtimes or even longer breakdowns. The focus is on offering dynamic, efficient maintenance and repair services. However, this places special demands on the diagnostic tester, performance and secure data exchange. To ensure this, a consistent diagnostic concept, the use of a intuitive workshop tester and a high-performance, robust interface are essential.

Julian Mayer, product manager of Softing TDX, is looking forward to presenting an intuitive plug & play solution for all diagnostic tasks in aftersales. The Softing TDX.workshop repair shop tester enables service technicians and mechatronics engineers to easily localize faults, repair and commission individual components as well as entire vehicle systems. The diagnostic software is complemented by the high-performance CAN/FD interface U100 from Kvaser, which can withstand even the toughest demands in the workshop environment.
