Diagnostics with CANoe


The Diagnostic Feature Set included with CANoe supports you in analyzing diagnostic communication via the KWP2000 and UDS standards. CANoe may be used both as a diagnostic tester and to simulate ECU diagnostics; it is parameterized via ODX or CANdelaStudio description files. In addition a complete OBD-II Tester is integrated in CANoe.

With CANoe.DiVa you can perform automated testing of diagnostic software implementations in ECUs. Reproducible test cases are generated based on an ECU diagnostic description in CANdela or ODX format. CANoe automatically executes these test cases and generates a conclusive test report.

With CANoe, you can also implement the diagnostic simulation of ECUs. In addition, the included Test Feature Set allows you to perform automated tests programmed in CAPL, XML,. NET, or with the help of vTESTstudio. CANoe can also automatically generate a test report in XML and HTML format on request.

Simulation of Entire Networks and Remaining Bus Simulation with CANoe


A simulation can be generated manually or automatically from the underlying communication data base. This remaining bus simulation of communication behavior of complete networks or individual ECUs is the basis for the subsequent analysis and testing phases.

Via specific OEM Packages the CANoe simulation can be adjusted to the requirements of the respective OEM. Such an OEM-specific remaining bus simulation is the basis for the function development. The developer may implement different test scenarios along the development process.

  • SIL (Software-in-the-Loop) – Execution of ECU code with vVITRUALtarget
  • MIL (Model-in-the-Loop) – Integration of MATLAB/Simulink models
  • HIL (Hardware-in-the-Loop) – Execute the simulation in real time with real hardware like VT System

Stimulation with CANoe


In stimulation with CANoe, you intentionally send out individual messages or signals to elicit reactions from ECUs in the network in a simple and quick way. The ECUs‘ responses give an indication abour their correct functionality. CANoe offers many different ways to stimulate ECUs in the network. The bandwidth ranges from pre-defined user interfaces to different programming options:

  • CAPL or .NET programs for setting signal and variable values.
  • Visual Sequencer to create command sequences easily
  • Signal Generator and Signal Replay for generating signal responses (sinusoidal, ramp, pulse, value list, etc.)
  • Interactive Generator or Frame Panel for stimulating the buses and conveniently sending modified signals
  • Panels for users to create customized graphic user interfaces.

Testing of ECUs and Entire Networks with CANoe


CANoe represents the state-of-the-art test environment. It is the ideal testing tool as well for the entire system as for efficient ECU testing. CANoe supports you with impressive performance on:

  • ECU tests
  • Module tests
  • Integration tests
  • Conformance tests
  • Regression tests
  • Testing of ECU prototypes

 

For your convenience the Test Feature Set (TFS) is integrated in CANoe. It performs both application-specific tests and standardized conformance tests.

On increased real-time requirements, you may also operate CANoe as a HIL (Hardware-in-the-Loop) system.

In the CANoe RT (Real Time) mode, real-time relevant simulation and test functions are executed on a dedicated computer, i.e. separate from the graphic user interface. This offers you an easy way to increase the overall system performance if necessary. Additionally it results in shorter latency times and more precise timers.


Application examples

CANoe’s many open interfaces make it easy to adapt it in your testing environment:

  • Integrating hardware for stimulation, measurement and injecting errors:
    VT System, digital and analog I/Os, automated measuring devices, controllable power supplies

Special Functions

Communication Concepts: Current Development

The classic signal-based communication is increasingly supplemented by service-oriented communication patterns. The AUTOSAR Adaptive platform, for example consistently uses service-oriented approach. Service-oriented communication is often based on the TCP/IP protocol stack and uses communication middleware, for example SOME/IP. The transmitted network message, i.e. the Ethernet frame, and the actual application view drift here much more apart than in case of signal based communication via CAN. In addition, the service interfaces and the associated data structures are defined in a way which is detached from a specific network transmission or network topology.

CANoe´s Communication Model

Graphic of CANoe´s Communication Model
Communication model of CANoe

CANoe supports this new design paradigm. To do so, databases are imported into the CANoe communication model. Via a built-in communication object editor you can define your own communication objects and edit the existing ones.

Graphic of CANoe´s service interfaces
Service Interfaces of the CANoe communication model

CANoe enables the use of the service interfaces directly as modeling artifact. The service interfaces support methods and events. Complex data types, used for example in the area of object detection, are supported directly. Endpoints which provide or use a service interface (providers and consumers) can be directly simulated in CANoe.

Workflow of CANoe .AMD/XCP

The CANoe option .AMD/XCP (AUTOSAR Monitoring and Debugging) supports access to internal parameters in the ECU. It gives you extensive test options and shortens your debug times substantially.

Especially with complex ECUs or distributed functions, a pure blackbox test is no longer adequate. Access to internal information in ECUs opens up new and comprehensive test options for your application or ECU stack. AUTOSAR ECUs, in particular, offer defined interfaces for measuring and stimulating test parameters due to their structured layout consisting of basic software (BSW), a runtime environment (RTE) and software components (SWCs).

 

Highlights:

  • Easy access to internal ECU parameters over XCP/CCP
  • Extensive measurement of the MICROSAR stack (supports all monitoring features, including generic measurement)
  • Update of A2L files with new addresses from the linker-map files (via the included ASAP2 Updater)

 

Application Areas:

  • Extended test options through access to ECU internal values
  • Analyzing and automated testing of ECU internal values, bus signals and I/O signals
  • Analysis of distributed functions with parallel access to several ECUs
  • Debugging in BSW and SWCs
  • Automatic configuration via ASAM A2L file

Technical Article "A Look Behind the Scenes"

Blackbox tests are typically conducted in the framework of ECU development or in analyzing faulty ECU behavior. This involves connecting an ECU‘s inputs and outputs to a test system for stimulation and measurement. Although this method lets the test engineer perform extensive analysis, certain tests require looking directly into the ECU. This is the only way to obtain meaningful test results or reduce testing effort.  (read more ...)

Regardless of whether raw data or physical quantities are required – CANoe .A429 provides powerful analysis functions on all levels. Users reach their goals quickly and also get a clear overview in complex network constellations.

 

Overview of Advantages

  • Reliable testing of data communication – from simple interactive tests to systematic automated tests
  • Automatically create test protocols
  • Easy monitoring of the data traffic and comprehensive network analysis
  • Just a single tool for accessing CAN, AFDX® and the Vector VT System, a modular test environment
  • Detect and correct error situations early in the development process

 

Symbolic Representation

ARINC 429 words for a bus can be described in a database. This involves assigning readable names to the ARINC 429 labels, and the data contents of the ARINC 429 words are also defined in detail. This not only includes the bit position within the ARINC 429 word, but also the data type and display name. For an interpreted display of physical parameters, you can also enter the units and define a conversion formula. A Database Editor is included with the product.

 

Display of Messages

The Trace Window lists the momentary ARINC 429 bus traffic clearly. When databases are available, the representation is symbolic – conversion formulas are automatically used. The layout of columns is user configurable, and three preconfigurable column layouts are available for quick toggling of the display.

Symbolic Display via Databases

The AFDX communication is described in ICD format. The aircraft manufacturer generally provides its suppliers with relevant description files. To ensure that this information is also usable in CANoe .AFDX, a converter is supplied that converts the ICD files into DBC files. The user adds these DBC files to a CANoe.AFDX configuration, which then enables access to symbolic information.

 

Message Display

The current AFDX message traffic is shown in the Trace window. If databases are available, the display is symbolic and is based on information from the converted ICD files. A Virtual Link is then no longer visualized numerically by its ID, but instead by its name. The display of columns is user configurable, and three preconfigurable column layouts are available for quick switchover. Refined search functions ensure that the user does not lose sight of key information among the large numbers of messages.
