Model-based functional and software development:
Whether it is the climate control model, R744 refrigeration circuit control, volume flow control or temperature flap control, through our competence we completely cover the automotive climate control software development field. Based on your requirements, we create models in "Matlab / Simulink" and "dSpace TargetLink". With the help of these tools, control algorithms can be specifically simulated, tested and implemented. The result is a Model in the Loop (MIL) and Software in the Loop (SIL) tested embedded software, which can be integrated into your ECU environment. Today, the AUTOSAR standard in control units plays a special role and enables a standardized interface definition, which facilitates communication between different software modules.
Process steps: Requirement analysis, specification of software requirements, system description and system analysis, modeling functionality, embedded code generation, MIL and SIL testing, integration in ECU environment.
Application of climate control systems:
We take care of the tuning, also known as application of climate control systems of 1-zone systems to 4-zone volume flow / mass flow systems for the premium segment. With the help of targeted vehicle tests, the software parameters are adjusted in order to achieve your desired results. Carrying out the vehicle tests at different stages of the development process will enable the efficient application of the climate control system based on a methodology developed by us. As a result, your developed software can be provided to your customer, which is successfully tested under all climatic conditions.
Process steps: Vehicle body planning, development phase planning, application test catalogue, vehicle test execution, evaluation of climate control system tests.
Conception and predevelopment of new climate control and thermal management concepts:
You want to integrate a new climate control concept into a new vehicle and are still at the beginning? We are happy to assist you with our experience and our proven development tools in order to enable you to reach your results quickly and efficiently in your concept phase. From clarifying your requirements over creating the concept to the implementation of prototypes, we are your competent and experienced partner.
Process steps: Requirements clarification, concept development, implementation planning, prototype development, documentation
Consulting and project management of software development projects in the area of interior air conditioning and thermal management:
With the experience of development projects, which were developed as software platforms for climate control and thermal management, a wide variety of brands and derivatives in the premium segment could be served. With this knowledge, we support you in your challenges in dealing with a wide range of stakeholders, development of working models, flowcharts, compatibility assurance and many other features, which are not longer manageable without lived procedures in an increasingly complex software structure with different parties. We are happy to advise you in all individual disciplines of the V-Model.
Process steps: Requirement clarification, development of processes, definitions and process role out, finding individual solutions
Software process development for climate control and thermal management projects:
Through years of experience in dealing with the V-Model development process, we can assist you in every aspect of the V-Model. Our focus is mainly on requirement engineering, change management, system engineering, software modeling,software test, test strategy, system test and application. We are happy to develop a tailored process together with you, which is practiced holistically by your team.
Process steps: Software process analysis, software process development, software process definition, software process roll-out
Prototyping of new software functions for automotive climate control and thermal management systems:
Whether particle measuring sensors or CO2 sensors, every new element in a climate control system also needs a suitable software function. With the help of "Matlab / Simulink" and "dSpace MicroAutobox" or a "Speedgoat" rapid prototyping system enables us to implement your new functions quickly and cost-effectively directly in your vehicle system environment, so that within a few weeks a prototype can be displayed with your desired function. In the future, more and more additional sensors will influence climate control and thermal management functions, so that prototyping and implementation in short cycles is becoming increasingly important.
Process steps: Requirement clarification, develpoment of functional specification, implementation planning, software function modeling, function simulation, vehicle implementation, functional tests and corrections, documentation
