Embedded software for automotive application has increased in complexity, there is a need to revisit and upgrade the conventional design approach to fulfilling the functional safety objectives. This not only affects the design, but there is also a need to improve the verification and validation process as more and more software-based units, such as ECU, continuously control or interact with critical systems, such as braking and steering. Process and development methodology play important role in addressing challenges such as complexity, quality and ultimately the productivity when implementing functional safety. The model-based design has been extensively used in the automotive software industry and both OEMs and suppliers have already started adopting and implanting Model-Based design for their embedded software development in addition to existing Embedded C development. Since different technologies, layered approach and independent development also those would get integrate by a system integrator. This integrated software needs to be validated to ensure the quality of the deliverables. We Provide extensive support to meet all your validation and verification requirement. We keep support and involve to establish testing methodologies part of software development process and post development as well. The different validation methodologies are,

Hardware in Loop testing

Simulating Realtime environment and signals to evaluate the controller. It’s a digital twin sometimes where we can do all type testing and observe Realtime behaviour of the hardware and software.

Software in Loop testing

Software In loop testing would be part of software development and sometimes post development where we can perform unit testing, functional testing and feature level testing. It can save product development life cycle to avoid spend more time or more iteration of HIL testing.

Testing Automation

Automating manual test cases would save time and money also it would avoid oversee misses which are happening during manual testing. We are expert is developing customized tool or framework as per your testing needs.

Functional Safety

In the automotive sector, ISO 26262 “Functional Safety – Road vehicles” is relevant for this purpose. It applies to all automotive manufacturers (OEMs) and their suppliers worldwide. “Functional” safety is intended to ensure that products can be operated safely – even if they fail. For example, your vehicle should only brake if the driver wants it to, but not in all other cases. The aim is therefore to prevent damage to people or the system environment – even if a system fails or runs incorrectly.

Root cause analysis

We do help our customer in root cause analysis for the specific failure scenarios and reproduce the same in our test environment to evaluate the circumstances and suggest supportive methodology overcome it.

On Field Validation

After all level of testing being performed in test environment, we have to evaluate certain scenarios and Realtime performance can be evaluate during on field validation. Later we could do comparison with the lap test result so that upgrade our testing environment simultaneously.
