How do you control essential functions in vehicles in the most efficient way?

Essential functions for every vehicle In vehicles, nowadays a lot of electronic control units (ECU’s) are available which control numerous of functions. To reduce weight, amount of wiring and cost of electronics the vehicle body related functions are often combined efficiently in Body Control Modules (BCM’s). BCM’s are central elements of vehicle electronics combining essential basic, comfort and security functions. As these functions require input from busses from multiple vehicle domains, BCM’s are often combined with Gateway functionality. Body Control Module The Business Unit Automotive & Mobility co-develops Body Control Modules for leading Tier-1 suppliers in the industry. The BCM is controlling essential functions such as interior and exterior lights, door locks, wiper functions. But also more sophisticated functions such as parking assistance, alarm and security. OEM’s typically request a scalable architecture and AUTOSAR compliant software modules, which they can easily adapt to customer requirements and specific vehicle brands. We have extensive knowledge in setting up software architectures for BCM on both AUTOSAR based architectures and proprietary platforms. We typically support in the design, implementation and test of the embedded software for BCM’s, ranging from basic controllers to advanced domain controllers. Official partner of AUTOSAR The Business Unit Automotive & Mobility is for more than 10 years partner of AUTOSAR and has co-developed and integrated a wide variety of AUTOSAR stacks for leading companies in the industry, ranging from AUTOSAR ‘light’ and fully compatible proprietary versions up to and including from tool vendors as Vector GmbH. Body & Security domain The Business Unit Automotive & Mobility is for more than 10 years partner of AUTOSAR and has co-developed and integrated a wide variety of AUTOSAR stacks for leading companies in the industry, ranging from AUTOSAR ‘light’ and fully compatible proprietary versions up to and including versions from tool vendors like Vector GmbH, for example. We closely work together with our customers in order to develop state-of-the-art production class embedded software with the right quality, on time and within budget.
