New technologies, highest demands on safety and security as well as more complex control units challenge the automotive industry
The amount of software in vehicles is growing, both in terms of value creation and development costs. This growth is driven by new technologies such as autonomous driving, Car2X communication, infotainment or connectivity in the car with CAN or Ethernet or the connection to the cloud via 5G. In addition to the classic AUTOSAR systems with safety and real-time requirements, there are more complex ECUs and multi-domain controllers with Adaptive AUTOSAR with high requirements for security and data integrity.
Even smaller ECUs have to be integrated into the complex architectures and thus achieve additional complexity through network and diagnostic capability.
Our customers have strict requirements for their software quality. These are implemented by monitoring compliance with coding guidelines such as MISRA or AUTOSAR C++14 or metrics such as HIS.
Axivion Suite is available both on the developer’s workstation and in the CI / DevOps pipeline on the build server or in the cloud. This makes Axivion Suite part of your CI/CD strategy and quality assurance.
Many of our customers have safety requirements in their projects according to ISO 26262 from QM to ASIL D. Our ISO 26262 solution integrates seamlessly into your safety process, from the configuration of the corresponding rules, the tool qualification kit to the reporting infrastructure.
With the architecture analysis, you can ensure compliance with your software architecture and additionally define safety or security architectures and monitor their compliance.
For the analysis of AUTOSAR-based architectures, Axivion Suite can import ECU extracts in arxml format. This allows the communication of SWCs via the RTE to be analysed more precisely and ensures compliance with the architecture.
Reference customers from the field of automotive
The complexity of automotive embedded software is further increased by software components with different ASIL requirements. With the ISO 26262 certified Axivion Suite, Schaeffler Automotive Buehl maintains the high quality of its mixed ASIL systems. Automated architecture verification reduces manual testing work and therefore creates free capacities for new developments in electromobility.
Schaeffler Automotive Buehl GmbH & Co. KG
“We have evaluated several static analysis tools, and Axivion Suite clearly stood out in our tests. The tool performed best in terms of AUTOSAR C++14 coverage and convinced us through its ease of use, control flow, and data analysis, and report generation. Axivion Suite has already become a mainstay component in our development workflow and a valuable component of our DevOps pipeline.”
Dejan Pangercic, CTO and Co-Founder of Apex.AI
„Our innovations are increasingly dependent on software. At the same time, the customer and market requirements are changing faster and faster, and the number of different versions is increasing. This calls for fast response times and the Axivion Suite helps us significantly in this respect.“
Gundolf Schmidt, Chief Engineer EPB Software System Development,
TRW Automotive GmbH
„The Axivion Suite helps us implement our architectural concepts flawlessly. The seamless integration into our UML tool chain went without a hitch and it has made our everyday work easier.“
Thomas Kremer, Teamleader Integration & Configuration EPB Software System Development, TRW Automotive GmbH
“The Axivion Suite is a real game changer. Thanks to continuous tests, the programmers go through a learning curve, which increases acceptance of the respective architectural requirements. In this kind of software archaeology project, this clears the way for reaching Level 3 of the Automotive SPICE standard.”
Kosmas Kopmeier, Director Engineering Consulting, SynSpace Group GmbH
„The Axivion Suite provides us with crucial support when implementing new features in EB street director and guaranteeing the quality of our software solutions in the long term.“
