It is difficult to imagine new vehicles be successful without connectivity. And yet, the age of connected cars has just begun. The next generation of applications based on cellular V2X (C-V2X) or dedicated short-range communication (DSRC) will allow vehicles to ‘see through the eyes’ of their traffic fellows and significantly extend the sensing range provided by their own sensors, such as cameras, radar, or lidar.
Collective perception paired with cooperative driving will lift vehicles to the next level of safety, comfort, and efficiency. Over-the-air (OTA) applications will become a key enabler for software-defined vehicles, and 5G complemented by edge computing will ring in a new era of smart mobility and connected automated driving.
Our Solutions for V2X and Connected Services
No matter your requirements or preferences for communication technology, joint solutions from dSPACE and our cooperation partners will help implement your idea of connected cars and launch them on the market faster.
Central Test Method for Validating ECUs
The dSPACE HIL test systems provide a simulated environment for efficient and reproducible validation of real ECUs in the laboratory 24/7. This increases test coverage and shortens validation times significantly. Our HIL solutions cover all vehicle domains from autonomous driving to zero emissions – starting with component testing and up to virtual vehicle testing.
Software-in-the loop (SIL) testing with the powerful dSPACE solution for PC- and cloud-based simulation
With the dSPACE solution for software-in-the loop (SIL) testing, you can significantly accelerate your software development process by testing and validating virtually. dSPACE offers you a complete, modular, scalable development and test solution. You can conveniently simulate a device-under-test on a PC, connect it to physics-based models, run scalable tests in the cloud, and then easily reuse test scripts on hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) systems.
Data Management and Collaboration Software for Automated ECU Testing
SYNECT, our solution for the efficient and automated verification and validation of ECU software, helps engineers worldwide handle all test parameters, their dependencies, versions and variants, and the underlying requirements throughout the entire development process.
This results in consistent data versions and complete traceability as required in homologation processes, and an efficient reuse of data in other projects.
Development support from start to finish
Developing complex E/E systems and software with ever more safety-critical functions, especially in the area of autonomous systems, raises the question of guaranteeing function reliability. That's why dSPACE offers end-to-end expertise in functional safety, test strategy development as well as verification and validation in complex E/E processes - to support you from the earliest project stages to homologation.
dSPACE systems are easy to get up and running – however, if a project is more complex, if individual solutions are needed or if there is high time pressure, you can also trust dSPACE's fast, competent and reliable engineering services.
