Visit us at the virtual Softing Automotive Convention | May 5-6, 2021

Following the successful digital event premiere last fall, we would like to invite you to the second virtual event, the “Softing Automotive Convention” on May 5 and 6, 2021. Our virtual showroom gives you the opportunity to experience our software solutions and exhibits easily in the office or from home.

Highlights include a discovery tour through the virtual exhibition and various live demos. For example, our experts will be showing the advantages of flexible project solutions with the OTX standard, the 4G data logger gateway xTCU with integrated telematics in interaction with a vehicle and the cloud, as well as the efficient, scalable diagnostic solutions from Softing in the engineering process and after-sales. Of course, the team of experts will be available during the event for personal exchange via video chat.


❯ Virtual exhibition of our diagnostic and test solutions

Move freely around our digital showroom and, in addition to our diagnostic solutions, now also discover Softing's diverse test solutions in the new virtual "test lab", which are required, among other things, in the engineering of vehicle components and the integration of these components in the complete vehicle. In many exclusive videos and information material you can convince yourself of how efficiently our solutions can be used. And our vehicle interfaces (VCIs) of the VIN|ING family are also just waiting for you to take a closer look – true to the original and in 3D. Our team of experts will be available live during the event for any questions you may have. 

There’s lots to discover – stay curious!

Live-Demos and Presentations

Project Solutions and Vehicle Diagnostics

It is advisable to use established technologies and components in order to reliably manage the continuously increasing complexity of vehicles in the face of ever shorter development cycles. Building on our established diagnostic products and the expertise of our engineering teams, we at Softing implement customized (software) tools – for a wide variety of tasks in engineering, manufacturing and after-sales service.

Stefan Widder, Business Manager at Softing Engineering & Solutions GmbH, uses various custom implementations to illustrate the flexibility and possibilities offered by diagnosis-based project solutions.

4G CAN Data Logger Gateway xTCU with Integrated Telematics by Globalmatix

The Connected Car2Cloud™ solution from Globalmatix makes it possible for vehicle manufacturers, fleet managers, insurance companies, as well as leasing and car-sharing companies to collect and analyze vehicle data from ECUs. The data is collected by the gateway xTCU and transferred to the cloud worldwide where it is made available for further processing or presentation. Security by Design guarantees that every transaction is safe. Data signals can be acquired with high sampling rates.

In this live demo, Markus Niedermaier, CSO at GlobalmatiX AG, will demonstrate the interaction between the vehicle, xTCU and the cloud.

Efficient Diagnostics Through the Entire Engineering Process

The engineering and development process of a vehicle or individual ECUs is complex. A high-performance tool is required to ensure efficient diagnostics throughout the entire process, from communication development, data release and function tests to road tests. Here, Product Manager Christian Weiner presents Softing DTS as a complete diagnostic tool for the engineering and development sector, and will be showing examples of classic diagnostic tasks in the tool, such as: 

  • Measurement value acquisition and quick tests in road tests
  • Flash programming
  • Function tests

How to Keep the Machine Running Using Softing TDX

As an all-rounder among the repair shop solutions, Softing TDX offers a framework for creating proprietary solutions in the area of diagnosis and the parameterization of vehicles as well as their components. Its modular structure and scalability make Softing TDX the ideal tool for global use in service repair shops and road tests.

Product Manager Julian Erber shows you how smart diagnostic concepts can be implemented with Softing TDX and how the varied requirements of repair shop and after-sales service can be covered in a future-proof way. He will also be showing some classic use cases with the repair shop tester, such as:

  • Identification
  • Quick tests
  • Guided functions 
  • ECU programming
