Electric-electronic architectures (E/E) in vehicles – What’s the first thing that comes to mind? Complex systems which have been becoming increasingly more extensive for years? Where an ever-greater number of components build upon one another and are dependent on one another? Where the individual components are subject to continual adjustment and expansion during development? And that it’s becoming increasingly difficult to maintain an overview for recognizing cor-relations and dependencies? If so, you should take a closer look at the advantages of an integrated development tool and requirement management.

In common with many other industries, medical technology is facing a profound upheaval. Medical devices are networked, collect data, adapt behavior and can learn independently. The days of developing a single isolated medical device are long gone – today, development focuses on medical system solutions with widely varying complexity. To keep increasing complexity manageable, model-based processes for electrical/electronic development are now available.

Service-oriented architectures (‘SOAs’) have been used for years in the IT industry to describe and structure distributed systems. However, service-oriented design is also becoming extremely significant in the automobile industry: how else can customers’ increasingly urgent demand to adapt the scope of functions of the automobile, similar to the possibilities of today’s smartphones, be met reliably? It is also necessary to handle additional requirements from model maintenance and to introduce technology such as autonomous driving and vehicle-to-X communication.

Specification and modeling tools for subtasks in the development of electric/electronic systems are widely used today. This is not due in small part to the fact that their use is what enables today's complex development processes to be controlled. Abstraction allows for transparency in domain concepts and systematically avoids repeated maintenance, which increases development speed significantly. Integrated, model-based system development for the entire E/E architecture still seems like a far-off dream, though.

The development of modern electric/electronic (E/E) architectures is a challenge today more than ever. Numerous development criteria must be taken into account, and classic vehicle domains need to be linked to new functions in the areas of driver assistance and autonomous driving. Completely new functions that are no longer limited to just the vehicle, but are also provided as services in the “IT backend” outside the vehicle, are emerging here. The introduction of serviceoriented architectures and powerful domain computers, Ethernet to on-board communication, connectivity gateways and, last but not least, increasing safety and security requirements represent profound and radical changes for every development organization. To master these complex development tasks successfully as a team, a development platform and E/E database, which can be implemented in different ways, are required.

Design and optimization of modern electric/electronic architectures is more than ever a task for specialists. They must take into account numerous design criteria and connect classic vehicle domains with new requirements and trends: the introduction of domain computers, Ethernet for onboard communication, connectivity gateways and, last but not least, the increasing requirements for functional safety and information security. To master these complex tasks, model-based development tools such as PREEvision with versatile engineering functions are needed.

Started thirteen years ago, the AUTOSAR standards enables efficient electric/electronic development today. Besides continuous additions in recent years, the systems thinking remains a mainstay of the standard. Rather than focusing on the individual ECU or on a communication bus, AUTOSAR always looks at the whole system. This system view is playing a more and more important role in the digitization of the automotive industry and, together with the “Adaptive Platform”, is paving the way for the next generation of vehicle electronic systems.

Handwritten corrections on printouts, giant spreadsheets, and countless tool changeovers: these and similar approaches are used in an effort to keep a handle on the development of a vehicle wiring system. More efficient approaches are needed to control the complexity of modern electrical distribution systems in the long run. The model-based development methods already in successful use in many industrial sectors provide the needed tool for this.

„A fool with a tool remains a fool.“ Das wissen wir alle und trotzdem führen viele Unternehmen ein Requirements-Werkzeug ein in der Annahme, dass sich allein damit eine Verbesserung ergibt. Weit gefehlt! In der Regel sind die Mitarbeiter aufgrund der Komplexität des neuen Werkzeugs, aber auch des wahrgenommenem Formalismus frustriert. Klar ist, dass wirksames und effizientes Requirements Engineering (RE) ein passendes Werkzeug braucht. Automativierbare manuelle Tätigkeiten sind ineffizient und werden abgelehnt – egal wie gut die Intentionen dahinter waren. Doch vor dem Werkzeug steht eine umfassende Vorbereitung der Abläufe und Funktionen, damit das Werkzeug in die Umgebung passt. In diesem Beitrag zeige ich Ihnen, wie Sie das für Ihre Umgebung passende Werkzeug auswählen. Wesentliche Werkzeuge werden charakterisiert und bewertet. Sie erkennen, dass Prozesse und Werkzeuge systematisch eingeführt werden müssen. Das erfordert professionelles Veränderungsmanagement. Der Beitrag gibt zudem eine praxisnahe Übersicht zu aktuellen RE-Werkzeugen. Konkrete Praxistipps zur Tool-Auswahl und -Einführung runden ihn ab.

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.

An ongoing trend within the automotive industry is that evermore complex systems are required to meet the demands of highly developed markets and stricter legislative environments. These systems have the potential to make vehicles both more efficient and safer; however, the complex system interactions that they rely on may be difficult to diagnose when faults occur.
