Our Connecting Solutions interlink your existing tools and combine them with efficient and effective state-of-the-art methodologies. They are tailored to your specific needs and connect models, execution, data, automation and processes. This ensures consistent models, the use of the same test procedures across your entire development process and seamless data management. Together, they form an IODP that allows you to assess the maturity of your product at any stage of the development.
Prototypes are essential for this but relying on physical prototypes alone is not enough. Virtual prototypes use virtualization to extend the use of prototypes to early development phases. In later stages, a set of linked simulation models and hardware components or subsystems on testbeds can be used. And finally, the product can be tested in the real world. Virtual, mixed and real prototypes are at the core of an IODP enabling short feedback loops and sound decision making throughout the development.
With our Connecting Solutions, we solve current interoperability problems and pave the way for continuous V&V in the development process. This will be a key element of future CI/CD toolchains for software-defined vehicles.
