Mastering vehicle data networking
As the central electronic control unit for data network management within the vehicle, the Gateway (GW) transmits and evaluates data between busses of various vehicle domains, such as engine compartment bus, interior bus, optical multimedia bus and diagnostic bus for maintenance. The GW can also host additional applications and functions that require data from multiple of these vehicles domains, for example, energy management.
The Business Unit Automotive & Mobility co-develops Gateway Modules for leading Tier-1 suppliers in the industry. OEM’s typically request architectures and software modules compliant with AUTOSAR. We have extensive knowledge in setting up software architectures for GW on both AUTOSAR based architectures and proprietary platforms. We typically support in the design, implementation and test of the embedded software for several complex routing algorithms to exchange various data formats between busses and different protocols on CAN, FlexRay, Ethernet, MOST and LIN.
Connected Gateway, state-of-the-art technology
Besides mastering internal vehicle data networking, the Business Unit Automotive & Mobility is also co-innovating Connected Gateways together with its customers. Connected Gateways provide reliable networking between vehicles and roadside infrastructure. We typically support in the design, implementation and test of the embedded software for reliable and innovative telematics solutions for a wide range of applications and at the forefront of many of the latest developments. Advanced Connected Gateway architectures have a dedicated On-board Communication Unit (OCU) embedded on a second core in the same housing.
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.
Vehicle Telematics domain
The Business Unit Automotive & Mobility has intensive know-how on developing embedded software in the domain Vehicle & Telematics, such as On-board Communication Units (OCU), herewith enabling vehicles receiving useful information from roadside infrastructure and utilization of big data generated from vehicles. 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.
