The Communication Matrix Manager visualizes the modeled bus communication in a manageable way.
The Communication Matrix Manager offers different options to visualize your content, such as communication clusters, to simplify working with extremely large communication descriptions, new communication methods, and new bus systems.
The Communication Matrix Manager lets you easily compare two communication matrices. All displayed element properties can be used for comparing, for example, different payload lengths, or header IDs of PDUs. The result is provided both as an HTML and an XML file. You can display the HTML file with the well-formatted changes in your browser or forward the files, e.g., to the network department.
The XML file can be imported for an automatic analysis using third-party software which supports continuous integration processes in a very convenient way.
You can easily compare the properties of many communication matrix elements, e.g., clusters, channels, ECUs, or PDUs, that originate from several communication matrices. This makes it possible to find deviations quickly, even in log files. The software makes it easy and intuitive for you to detect changes and perform consistency checks. This helps you work with new bus systems and their complex communication structure even during agile development with fast version update rates.
For implementing new features in fields such as autonomous driving, such as end-to-end protection or cybersecurity, the AUTOSAR ARXML format is required. As these communication matrices are not human-readable, the Communication Matrix Manager provides essential support for developers and testers.
