In developing electronics for modern construction equipment, a large share can even be tested and simulated meaningfully on test benches. In later development stages, on the other hand, it is preferable to perform tests and trial runs under real conditions at construction sites or outdoor test sites. To avoid distracting the operator in the driver’s cabin with test equipment, a wireless interface has now been realized for the first time with the CANoe and CANalyzer development and analysis tools from Vector. Electronics developers at BOMAG GmbH now use this interface to log the communication on various vehicle buses at a distance and analyze it.

ECU tests may be very complex depending on the work area and the range of functional features. This is even more relevant when testing must cover a network of five to nine ECUs whose functionalities are inseparably intertwined and vary according to the vehicle type, features and special customer wishes. That is why EvoBus has started up a new component test bench based on the VT System from Vector. Its flexible, automated tests enable a high level of test coverage and precise reproducibility of all test cases.

The ISOBUS communication protocol has now essentially made it possible to use agricultural machines from different manufacturers together without any problems. However, this accomplishment is associated with enormous development and testing effort by the manufacturer. The agricultural equipment manufacturer AGCO/Fendt used the CANoe.ISO11783 simulation and test tool to assist in integrating high-performance test automation in its existing hardware-in-the-loop test environment. Systematic tests now improve product quality, and in an era of ‘precision farming’ it lets the company confidently address the trend towards further intelligent vehicle components.

Demo limitation: access to any hardware interface not possible. The time management is done with Windows timers, so it cannot be assumed that the time behaviour of the full version will be the same as of the demo. This means that the simulation time of the demo version does not necessarily correspond to real time.

The eye diagram is an analysis method for evaluating the signal quality of transmission networks with a moderate to high transmission speed. CAN networks can transmit information bit by bit from sender to partly distant receivers. The information transfer can, however, be easily corrupted by the network topology, cable length between the participants, line and terminating resistors as well as external electric influences. Both eye diagram analysis and serial bit mask analysis allow these influences to be identified and corrected early during the configuration phase of the CAN network.

The engineers at Hybrid Air Vehicles (HAV), builders of the Airlander 10 hybrid aircraft, decided to run complete test scenarios with the help of the Vector systems. The Airlander 10, the world’s longest aircraft, embodies a new type of hybrid concept, combining the best of aircraft and helicopters with lighter-than-air technology to bring brand-new capabilities to aircraft. In a pioneering project of this magnitude, meticulous testing of the control and communication systems is critical and plays an important role both before and during test flights.

CAN is the prevailing bus system for communication between electronic control units (ECUs) in today's vehicles. The communication demand has increased dramatically in recent years, and vehicle manufacturers are now reaching the limits of vehicle networking with CAN. Ethernet and CAN FD provide higher bandwidth and are taking over some of the tasks of existing bus systems. The higher bandwidth is one aspect, but also of high relevance is the introduction of new communication paradigms.

The CAN serial bus system has already been deployed in numerous aviation applications. Extensive activities in CAN standard working committees such as ARINC 825 and ARINC 812 indicate that aircraft manufacturers, suppliers, and airlines are increasingly relying on CAN systems in future aircraft programs. To meet the stringent requirements for robustness, reliability, and long service life, there is an increasing demand for efficient measurement and test methods, which also cover the CAN physical transmission layer.

CAN with a flexible data rate (CAN FD) is a technological evolution of the CAN bus. The complexity of the technology is equivalent to the standard CAN bus but it offers a significantly increased bandwidth. CAN FD is therefore an alternative for FlexRay or Ethernet Networks. The network specialists at Vector investigated two typical applications, Measurement of ECU internal signals via XCP and ECU reprogramming, using the CAN FD bus system.

Robert Bosch introduced the new CAN protocol CAN FD (CAN with Flexible Data rate) in March 2012. Key new features of this protocol are that it extends the useful data length from eight to 64 bytes and offers significantly higher data transmission rates. Based on its performance data, CAN FD is positioned between High Speed CAN (1 Mbit/s) and FlexRay (10 Mbit/s). It is ideal for filling the performance gap between these bus systems at low cost. This article explains, from the perspective of a tool supplier, what needs to be modified and the effects of such changes on CAN FD development and simulation. These modifications are made on various levels: from the hardware level to potential data ­formats and various communication layers.

If they use different platforms, this leads to high resource requirements in test creation and test management. Much more economical are solutions based on the tool CANoe for simulation and test, which is well-suited for tests on all development levels, due to its high scalability and flexibility.

However, no such tools are available for special engine controllers used for drag racing. Using Vector’s CANape measurement and calibration tool enables an engine controller to be calibrated for top performance without using a test stand while staying within a tight budget even under the continual risk of destroying the engine after just a few test runs.

When different bus systems are used in vehicles, the effort required for troubleshooting and analysis always increases. Laboratory tests are no longer sufficient to simulate real situations for communication in the total vehicle system. Only extensive test drives in the real environment can deliver the necessary testing depth. In test fleets, data loggers installed in the vehicles are the tool of choice for logging the data traffic of all buses and select I/O lines. This makes it possible to access the test drive data at any time in quality assurance tasks.

More and more electronic functions for safety and convenience are finding their way into the modern automobile. Since the number of ECUs is being held in check, however, this means that the complexity of individual devices must grow to compensate. Making an important contribution toward rationalization of the development process for these distributed systems is the XCP communication protocol, whose main tasks include measurement and calibration of ECU-internal variables at runtime. A tremendous advantage of this successor protocol to CCP is its independence of the physical transport layer.
