To be able to evaluate the functionality of a single algorithm or an entire system, the relevant properties must be measured and recorded. This is performed through the use of measurement and calibration systems such as CANape in laboratories, on test benches or during vehicle testing. Depending on the combination and the number of sources, there are often several hundred thousand signals to acquire. The varying character of the interfaces and the temporal behavior of the sources pose special challenges on a measurement tool for synchronous recording.
This document provides you with an overview of how you can measure really everything with CANape and how other products can be integrated to form a complete solution.

The article describes an innovative monitoring concept for health and performance assessment of suburban electric multiple unit trains (EMUs) developed by Fishbone Solutions. A key factor behind this project was the desire to avoid installing extra hardware. Instead, useful engineering information should be extracted from operational data that was already being collected by the On-Train Monitoring Recorder (OMTR). OTMR records various channels of operational data, such as speed, acceleration, throttle position, brake setting and brake cylinder pressure, at time intervals typically down to 0·1 sec. In terms of data analytics, the key outputs are graphs and tables, which are not always easy to interpret when looking for a simple fix to a problem. This is where Vector stepped in, providing a CANape setup to analyse the data captured in the OMTR and to present performance and condition data in a more visual way.

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.

To avoid errors, quality standards are needed that have the same level as in the development of the actual software.

Transmission control units are often developed and calibrated for dozens or hundreds of vehicle variants. Not every possible variant is physically realised during development. Even the simulation of all variants on a HiL becomes infeasible with growing number of variants, since at least the control unit must then be physically realised and integrated into the HiL system. In such variant-rich cases, simulation of the entire system, including the control unit, becomes particularly attractive. Daimer, QTronic and Vector describe how Mercedes-Benz currently uses virtual ECUs to validate transmission control software for about 200 variants of the Sprinter series in a highly automated way on Windows PC.

In the development of electric and hybrid vehicles, in particular, the requirements for instrumentation used to measure internal ECU signals are very high. Nonetheless, measurement data rates of up to 30 Mbyte/s and the necessary sampling rates of 100 kHz can be achieved with the latest generations of microcontrollers and an intelligent measuring instrumentation solution. The ECU’s CPU is not loaded here.

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.

In calibrating engine controllers for production vehicles, electronic developers typically work with engine test stands and numerous test drives over different route scenarios. 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.

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.

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.
