    CANape

    Measuring, Calibrating and Logging of ECUs and ADAS Sensors

    ECU Calibration with CANape

    CANape's primary area of application is optimal parameterization (calibration) of ECUs. While the measurement is running, you change parameters and record signals at the same time. Communication between CANape and the ECUs takes place via protocols such as XCP or via microcontroller-specific interfaces with the VX1000 hardware. In addition, CANape supports various ADAS sensors such as radar, LIDAR and video. Combined with powerful hardware, CANape is capable of storing several gigabytes of data per second. Calibration data management and convenient measurement data evaluation including data management and reporting make CANape a complete tool for ECU calibration. Of course, CANape provides access to bus, diagnostic and analog measurement data.

    Advantages

    • Universally applicable platform through use of standards and open interfaces
    • Time-synchronous acquisition and recording of measurement data from a wide variety of sources, such as ECUs, vehicle buses, ADAS sensors, analog measurement technology, etc. 
    • Process-safe logging solution through interaction with CANape log
    • Automated measurement data evaluation through data mining locally on the hard disk and in the measurement data management system vMDM in the cloud

      ADAS sensors provide detailed information about the vehicle's environment. The sensor analyzes the data, identifies road users and describes information (position, speed ...) as data objects. For example, the sensor sends these data objects in the form of object lists to fusion control units.

      The transmission of the object lists is signal-based or as an already defined data object in form of a structure. A data object that describes a point cloud of a lidar, for example, can be used directly in CANape for visualization. In the case of a signal-based description, the signals must be assigned to the data objects. The assignment is performed by the Signal Object Adapter in CANape. Online measured signals or already stored measurement files serve as the source.

      For verification purposes, the data objects are clearly visualized in special ADAS windows. These windows also display additional information such as position data and videos from reference cameras. This allows you to quickly and easily see at which point of the environment the objects were detected.

      vSignalyzer is derived from CANape. All data evaluation options in CANape work exactly the same way in vSignalyzer.

      Your CANape license is installed in your vehicle, but you want to analyze your data at your desk? Simply continue using CANape. You only need one vSignalyzer license. CANape recognizes it and you can analyze your data without a vSignalyzer installation.

      Start CANape without a license and work in restricted mode. In this mode projects and configurations can be edited freely. Data analysis requires a license.

      Your CANape projects contain many hundreds of megabytes of description files (A2L, ARXML, ..)? Please excuse me, but it takes time to load these data volumes.

      To save you time, you can simply use vSignalyzer to load your CANape projects. This is fast because the description files are ignored. You will quickly see your configuration and the measured values. You do not need a separate license. vSignalyzer also works with a CANape license.

      In the Simulink model or C code, you define your function and place the CANape I/O function blocks at the inputs and outputs of the model. After code generation, compilation and linking, a DLL is available for integration in CANape.

      In CANape, the model's inputs and outputs are linked to the real signals from the ECU. An easy-to-perform configuration change automatically moves the bypassing algorithm from CANape to the VN8900. In the process, all relevant data and configurations are loaded into the VN8900. At runtime of the model on the VN8900, you acquire the necessary input data from the ECU via the VX1000 hardware, XCP on Ethernet, XCP on CAN, CAN, FlexRay, or I/O. The VN8900 is then used for the configuration. The results of the algorithm are again sent to the ECU via the same path. You then use CANape to measure and adjust both the bypass algorithm on the VN8900 and the code in the ECU.
