  • Overview

    Model Based Development (MBD) has become a norm for software development of in-vehicle Electronic Control Units (ECU). Rigorous testing and compliance with standards are two critical elements of technology development in this domain.

    Solution

    Softdel’s technology expertise in MBD, Automotive Open System Architecture (AUTOSAR) and Human Machine Interface (HMI) have made the company a long-term partner for a quality-conscious, Japanese automotive service provider.

    Model Based Development (MBD)

    MBD is used for powertrain, body electronics and chassis subsystems. Softdel applies its MBD expertise to develop software for ECUs. Softdel has helped develop body control modules, seat control modules and climate control modules through:
    • Requirement engineering
    • MBD and auto code generation
    • ECU software development
    • Algorithm development, porting and integration

    Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS)

    Automotive players are facing growing pressure from customers and regulators to enhance safety features. The focus on safety is compelling manufacturers to make automobiles intelligent, safe, and connected.
    Softdel has been helping automotive Tier 1 and Tier 2 manufacturers with various ADAS applications including air bag algorithm, lane departure warning, reverse park assist, blind spot detection, forward collision warning and reverse cross objects detection.

    ADAS Test House
    • Test strategy, design and execution
    • Software code verification
    • System testing
    • Validation of ADAS applications
    • Field tests across various parameters of target vehicle
    • Field events logging and report generation

    Development and Maintenance
    • Application development for field events analysis and parameter logging
    • Algorithm re-engineering, maintenance, fixing bugs
    • Migration from legacy code to MBD and code maintenance

    AUTOSAR

    AUTOSAR compliance unifies the data format for communication protocols and interaction with multiple ECUs in a vehicle network. It has been widely adopted in passenger and commercial vehicle segments and is gaining popularity in farm equipment and off-road vehicles. Softdel’s AUTOSAR services include:
    • Migration of legacy software to AUTOSAR compliant software
    • ECU configuration, integration and acceptance testing
    • OS Porting for different microcontrollers
    • Development of AUTOSAR BSW, MCAL and CDD modules
    • Porting platform software for different microcontrollers

    Infotainment & Cluster

    Car owners are demanding customized, feature-rich systems for instrument clusters, infotainment, rear seat entertainment, telematics and more. Reconfigurable HMIs, consolidation of displays, information prioritization, and smartphone connectivity are some of the major trends in this space. Softdel utilizes its expertise in HMI design and development to cater to these trends through:

    • HMI consulting services
    • HMI design and business logic development
    • HMI platform development and porting on Embedded Linux
    • Product design engineering services
    • Software maintenance

    Verification & Validation

    Innovations and changes in the automotive industry often have a direct impact on human life. Rigorous testing is necessary to ensures safety and reliability. Softdel has extensive experience testing devices and solutions for multiple domains as well as specialized testing skills for automotive engineering:

    • Unit testing (MATLAB model, static code)
    • Verification and validation of MATLAB Simulink models
    • MILS / SILS testing of Matlab Simulink Model
    • PIL Testing (WinAMS, HEW and Multi)
    • ECU testing using vector tools
    • Static code analysis (MISRA compliance check, PolySpace analysis)
    • PC based tool for searching and checking MATLAB Simulink models for quality and productivity improvements
