In ECU development, short innovation cycles and high cost pressure lead to a distribution of work, in which the software development process is separate from the process of adapting it to its desired behavior in the vehicle. In today's vehicles, tens of thousands of such calibration data values must be determined and managed and indeed for each individual vehicle variant. To avoid errors, quality standards are needed that have the same level as in the development of the actual software. This article discusses the requirements of tools for managing parameter values and presents a universal solution.

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.

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.

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.

Case Study Open/close the description + the download link (except appnotes, addons, demos and presentations)Audi: XCP-on-FlexRay - AUTOSAR-compatible XCP software modules for FlexRay ECUs
To adjust parameter values in FlexRay ECUs, Audi calibrates them via XCP-on-FlexRay. One of Audi’s requirements was AUTOSAR compatibility of the XCP embedded software modules in the ECUs. For this purpose Vector modified both the XCP master and slave software so that Audi’s electronic developers could perform efficient measurements and calibrations. This was possible thanks to dynamic allocation of the XCP bandwidth for FlexRay.

Turbochargers help engines, especially those with comparatively small displacements, to develop considerable torque and a high level of driving dynamics. Today’s engine charging systems must flexibly adapt to engine speed and momentary power requirements; therefore, turbocharger control requires careful optimization. For the automotive supplier BorgWarner Turbo Systems, use of the CANape software tool has produced enormous streamlining potential in developing demo vehicles and hardware equipment for road durability tests.

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.

This fall the first FlexRay production application will hit the streets. The Munich-based automotive manufacturer BMW is introducing the innovative bus system for the first time on its new X5 vehicle. From December 2004 to January 2006 tool producer Vector Informatik worked together with BMW on the FlexRay solution. FlexRay experts Martin Peteratzinger and Florian Steiner of BMW and Roel Schuermans of development partner and software provider Vector discussed their experiences in HANSER automotive.

The XCP STIM mechanism is a very effective method for bypassing parts of an ECU algorithm and can speed up software development cycles, depending on the duration of the alternative flash programming. The real-time suitability of the system composed of XCP master and slave depends on the operating systems used.
