QTronic Releases a New Technology for the Optimization of Engine Parameters

"ECU Chip Simulation" is a new technology that allows users to simulate and optimize native engine controller code on a PC. QTronic presents applications of this technology at the 7th International Design of Experiments (DoE) Conference in Berlin, Germany.

Berlin, Germany, May 21, 2013 --(PR.com)-- QTronic, a leading supplier of simulation-based tools for automotive software development, has recently completed the development of a new technology that allows to simulate native ECU controller code on a PC. At the 7th International DoE Conference, QTronic and engineers from Daimler AG jointly present how this new technology is applied to improve and speed-up the process of optimization of engine parameters. The presentation takes place in Berlin on June 19th, 2013. More details about this conference:

QTronic is also participating at the DoE 2013 exhibition where it demonstrates the latest versions of its innovative tools Silver and TestWeaver:

Silver is a tool used to move control development tasks from test rigs and HILs to Windows PC. Silver provides an environment that allows to quickly port control software (C Code or native HEX code) from real ECUs to Windows. This allows users to run the resulting virtual ECU in closed-loop with a simulated vehicle on the PC. Silver supports automotive standards for ECU communication, measurement and calibration. Silver is used for control development at Mercedes-Benz, BMW, AMG, IAV, Continental and others.

TestWeaver ("testing without test scripts") is a tool that autonomously searches for weak points and bugs in control software and calibration data. Users supply a simulation model, for instance, using MATLAB®/Simulink, Silver or HiL, and specify measurable quality indicators. TestWeaver automatically constructs driving scenarios that minimize these indicators. This helps to find bugs earlier and with much less effort than otherwise possible. TestWeaver supports several analysis tasks recommended by the ISO 26262. TestWeaver is used for software development at Mercedes-Benz, AMG, Toyota, Bosch, SAIC, ZF and others.
