Measuring and Calibrating of AUTOSAR Applications with XCP and CANape: The AUTOSAR Standard describes methods that enable standardized development of reusable and replaceable software components within vehicles. This approach minimizes the development effort for electronic control unit (ECU) software. The software is then optimized using CANape. Since the software developer cannot yet optimize the parameters for a control algorithm of the ECU at the time of implementation, these parameters are defined in the software as calibration parameters. The calibration parameters are ultimately variables in the source code that reside in RAM memory and remain unchanged by the algorithm itself. They can then be calibrated using CANape.

Vector has released CANape 11.0, which is the latest version of its development software for ECU calibration. CANape’s multi-configuration handling simplifies working with projects that have extensive configurations. Signal names can be anonymized, which protects development know-how and hides any relationships to the meanings of the signals. This is done by omitting the original signal names in A2L files when assigning measurement tasks to third parties. The tool also supports convenient changes to signal names over the entire development cycle.

The many different bus systems used in the development of electric/hybrid vehicles (EV/HEV) are pushing conventional hardware interfaces to their performance limits. A crucial factor in determining testing depth, analysis quality and simulation options is the degree of real-time performance in data exchange. Communication between vehicle networks and the test and simulation tools is of primary importance here. To satisfy these heightened requirements, Vector has added a modular high-performance interface with integrated real-time computer to its interfaces product line. This interface’s realtime performance leads to short deterministic cycle and response times and enables flexible use in the EV/HEV development field and in numerous new application areas.

Besides realizing new optimization potential by their own inventiveness, suppliers now also have more powerful tools available to them.
