Vector supports you with concerted diagnostic and flashing tools, that increase efficiency and at the same time improve the quality in the development process.
The diagnostic tool support ranges from specifying diagnostics, generating ECU auto code up to integration, validating and diagnostic testing. An off-the-shelf flash tool covers all use-cases throughout the entire lifecycle from ECU flashing up to flash parties after production.
Open interfaces and standards such as AUTOSAR, DoIP, WWH-OBD, ODX and UDS are supported perfectly.
Tools and Services
Increase your efficiency and improve your quality by the use of our optimally concerted tools.
Specification/Creating Diagnostic Data
User-oriented specification of ECU diagnostic data based on templates. Import and export of ODX data is supported.
The V-model shows Vector´s powerful software tools that are suitable for every phase of the complete automotive diagnostic development process: Beginning with the specification, continuing with implementation of ECU software, and finishing with integration and functional testing.
Service-oriented Architectures and Ethernet in Vehicles
Towards data centers on wheels with model-based methods
Service-oriented architectures (‘SOAs’) have been used for years in the IT industry to describe and structure distributed systems. However, service-oriented design is also becoming extremely significant in the automobile industry: how else can customers’ increasingly urgent demand to adapt the scope of functions of the automobile, similar to the possibilities of today’s smartphones, be met reliably? It is also necessary to handle additional requirements from model maintenance and to introduce technology such as autonomous driving and vehicle-to-X communication.
The development tool PREEvision supports the methodical, consistent design of a service-oriented architecture. The user is guided from the definition of the service interfaces, through specification of the interaction of services, to an AUTOSAR compliant Ethernet design through an integrated workflow. If other bus technologies such as CAN, LIN, or FlexRay are also to be used in addition to Ethernet, mixed topologies can also be designed. Thus PREEvision accompanies the system designer through the challenging task of combining classic embedded design with modern service orientation and the necessary back-end communication – and thereby supports the transformation of the automobile into a data center on wheels.
