Over the air updates – A new core technology for the automotive industry

Firmware and Software Updates over the air – each OEM worldwide is currently thinking about this technology and the importance for further business models. This technology is not only a way to save costs (e.g. for recalls) – it is also a base technology for new business opportunities.
EBs OTA solution is a reliable, scalable, flexible and secure toolchain for software and firmware updates over-the-air. EB’s OTA solution includes the software required to enable OTA within the car, as well as a secure communication channel between the car and the cloud, and a backend including a user interface (UI) for vehicle, campaign, and software management. EB provides all required services (e.g. deployment, operations, monitoring, testing etc.) to operate the EB OTA solution on the customer’s infrastructure of choice.
EB´s decade long experience in AUTOSAR, Automotive security topics, backend operations and vehicle diagnostics are the cornerstones of this FW and SW update OTA solution. Learn how you can use EBs product and EBs expertise to define and integrate an OTA solution in your business.

Moving from tool-based to platform-based HMI development

革新的な新しい技術やコネクティビティの導入、ユーザーの好みの変化は、自動車メーカーの自動車の開発方法に影響を与えています。ハイエンドなUXをユーザーに提供し、ブランドイメージを強化し、その上新しい機能を開発し、それらを統合するためのツールを使用することは、自動車メーカーに対してさらに負担になることを意味します。また、このようなUXとブランドイメージは、車内のインターフェイスとはつながりがありません。EBのHMIソリューションSuiteで、どのようにパーソナライズされたUXでも車内のインターフェイスと完全につなげることができます。これは、HMI開発に、Platformベースのマルチモーダルなアプローチを活用する方法です。技術の複雑性が増しているため、車と乗客の間のシームレスなやり取りを実現するために様々なシステムの統合が必要であり、その方法が解決できます。

Martin Riedl, Product Manager EB GUIDE, HMI

Enabling next-generation conversations with your car

スピーチダイアログの開発は、モノリシック(単一)なコマンドと制御から、異なるマルチモーダル対話システムの統合と共存へと移行しています。自動音声認識(ASR)とText-to-Speech(TTS)から始まった音声認識技術は、音声の認識と意味の認識に分かれるパワフルな認識機能を備えたクラウドベースのシステムに進化してきています。AppleのSiriやAmazonのAlexaといったスピーチアシスタントが急速に進化していることも、スピーチダイアログの開発に少なからず影響を与えています。そのため、次世代の車内のスピーチシステムは、ハイブリッドスピーチアーキテクチャを活用し、様々なクラウドサービスと接続できる柔軟性を持ち、常に最高の技術を利用できる必要があります。機械学習と文脈に合った意味認識の活用により、ユーザーの好みに合わせたユーザーエクスペリエンスを提供する方法を発見していただけます。

EB robinos: Highly automated driving from development to volume production

Development cycles in the automotive industry are rather long compared to other industries. Launching a major release of a car model often takes about 5-7 years. In the past consumers accepted these long development cycles because disruptive technologies with shorter innovation cycles were not on the horizon. At the latest with the expected introduction of automated driving in the next few years, product cycles need to be much shorter. The technology for automated driving is still under heavy development and a system that might be available at the vehicle’s launch date will be outdated in terms of safety, comfort, or security with high speed. Therefore, it is essential to shorten the development cycles and bring the latest, safest, and most sophisticated technology to the consumer, even when there is no major model release.

Different development tools and systems make it very challenging to shorten the time from advanced research and development (R&D) or pre-series development to mass production. In R&D, you often use rapid prototyping systems to show a function at a demonstration. These components are usually not developed according to mass production standards because the focus is on innovations. This creates the necessity to rewrite the codebase once it moves to series development. On the other hand using mass production software components for R&D purposes often fail due to the fact that these modules are not flexible enough and not running in rapid prototyping frameworks.

To overcome these hurdles and shorten the development cycles, Elektrobit developed an innovative software platform as well as a process to use the same software components in the overall development cycle from R&D to mass production. In this concept, a single algorithmic core is used which is separated from the execution environment. The core contains the functional part of a software component. It is highly configurable and flexible to serve R&D as well as mass production requirements. Plus, the core is developed according to mass production standards, which allows the direct use in a target ECU.

This approach shortens the development time of software components from R&D to mass production. Consumers will benefit faster from new ADAS and automated driving functions as well as from comfort or safety updates. Moreover, using the algorithmic core in multiple vehicle projects raises the quality and variety of software because the algorithms will be improved continuously.

Testing self-driving car software

Progressing from ADAS to highly automated driving (HAD) functions turns the testing infrastructure into a key part for a successful project. Along with an increase in complexity there are significant increases in test effort (hours, mileage, scenarios) and test data (large set of sensors e.g. video, radar, lidar, ultrasound, map, traffic) required.  An efficient and effective environment for verification and validation covers the whole project lifecycle from first prototypes to release for production. It combines test drives in real traffic and on proofing grounds with various types of simulation to handle the constraints in development time and budget. Get insights  on EB’s solutions for Video-HiL and our outlook towards testing highly automated driving systems.
