Accelerated Development, Easy Testing

Solutions for Railway Systems Engineering

Accelerated development and simplified testing of embedded railway systems.

More advanced and complex: Embedded computers play critical roles aboard modern trains, in rail transportation, and tunnel and route monitoring. While meeting safety standards, railway computers and systems need robust, sophisticated networking, data collection and real-time control.

Vector offers proven, professional tools and comprehensive know-how for this purpose. Our field-approved testing and development concepts from the automotive field helps to simplify tasks in railway systems engineering:

With Vector solutions you can develop complex embedded systems efficiently and quickly; software testing becomes easier, is reliable and reproducible. Vector know-how supports you on the path towards durable, robust and reliable solutions for train and track control, passenger entertainment and monitoring.

Control Function Testing

DYNA4 and Driver Assistance Systems for Rail & Tram

  • Open simulation environment for virtual test driving of trains and trams
  • Develop and test your driver assistance control function from MIL, SIL to HIL
  • Realistic animation with traffic, pedestrians, animals and varying lighting effects
  • Sensors delivering either object lists or raw data: Camera, Lidar, Radar or Ultra-sonic
  • Modular Simulink model architecture
  • Test automation 

System Testing

Vector CANoe and Railway Systems and Networks

CANoe is our comprehensive software tool for development, test and analysis of individual microcontrollers and entire systems of connected microcontrollers.

It supports network designers, development and test engineers throughout the entire development process – from planning to system-level test.

CANoe represents a state-of-the-art test environment with support for single microcontroller tests, module tests, integration tests, conformance tests, regression tests, and testing of prototypes.

Software Testing

VectorCAST and Embedded Railroad Applications

Dynamic software testing is an essential part of ensuring the functional safety of software in railroad applications and is required by EN 50128 and EN 50657 and Cenelec standards.

VectorCAST is the solution for testing embedded applications in the railroad industry and supports the capture and reporting of structural code coverage at all levels required by EN 50128.

EN 50128 recommends the qualification of test tools to ensure suitability for the development of a safety-relevant application. Vector offers a standardized tool qualification package that proves the accuracy of VectorCAST output in embedded development environments.

Software Analytics

Vector Squore and Software Project Quality

With Squore we offer an innovative decision-making dashboard. It enables quality management of software development by improving project performance, driving software quality, and ensuring process and standard compliance.

All along the project lifecycle, the variant Squore/Software Analytics automatically collects and aggregates with its own results the measures from the various tools already in use in your environment, in order to provide an overall and historical insight on software products and processes.
