In today’s automotive industry, driver assistance features are a key differentiator. From the luxury market to the mass market, functions that enable safe, fuel-efficient, and comfortable driving are becoming standard and paving the way to autonomous driving. Innovations in those technologies mark the automotive leaders.
Increasing software complexity
The growing number of driver assistance functions and safety systems, as well as the trend towards self-driving vehicles, present challenges for carmakers and suppliers. Car2X communication, immediate environment detection, and rapid growth in the variety of sensors and technologies are increasing software complexity.
More than 90% of innovations in vehicles today are software-driven. Developing and implementing new features requires expertise in automotive software engineering.
Mastering the challenges
With more than two decades of embedded software engineering experience, EB Automotive delivers high-quality driver assistance applications. EB’s team of software developers, architects, and project managers uses the latest software development tools and methods, from traditional to agile. Our professional skills and the extensive knowledge acquired from completing multiple driver assistance projects allow us to produce valuable results for our customers.
EB’s driver assistance experts support car manufacturers and suppliers, and will assume responsibility for the complete software life cycle – everything from pre-development to series development projects. We excel at series-model-based and conventional software development.
Innovative engineering methods, sophisticated processes, proven standards
As a forward-looking and proactive software partner, EB developed the concept of the “EB Automotive Software Factory”. This engineering method implements recurring work processes to create a production line for software. That means that integration and validation steps can be reproduced and traced at any time in AUTOSAR-compliant or ISO 26262-compliant projects and also in conventional projects.
Customers trust our methods for industrialized integration and validation of driver assistance software for series production.
