  • Maximize Design Quality with Connected Engineering
    Toggle Abstract

    TECHNICAL SESSION As development cycles compress and the economic damage of product recalls mounts, attention is firmly focused on design quality. Today, industry leaders are embracing Systems Engineering to drive design quality. One key systems engineering principle is seamless and managed data integration: "digital continuity". Leading OEMs use a mix of best in class tools, but with an unswerving commitment to total communication.

    This session describes the latest integration technologies delivered by Mentor's Capital tools for electrical systems design, covering subjects ranging from requirements linking to resource library synchronization.

  • Speeding up ECU Integration Cycle Time: How to Shorten the time Between Reception of ECU Extract and Updating the Configurations of AUTOSAR ECUs
    Toggle Abstract

    TECHNICAL SESSION Integration cycles can take many months because of the impact that even small changes in redesigns have, in particular when the flow is discontinuous and scattered.

    This presentations talks about the concepts of integration that can reduce the time for the integration cycles dramatically, saving time & money - and gray hair for reduced risk in the process.

    Toggle Abstract

    TECHNICAL SESSION ADAS, in-vehicle infotainment (IVI), and Instrument Cluster systems will continue to see continued investment and growth. And while these areas contribute value on their own, cross-domain integration presents tremendous opportunity to deliver differentiated experiences. This session reviews advances in hardware, software, and development tools that help ensure that these systems can be designed and delivered in a cost effective manner.

  • Laser Headlamps: Latest Developments and Future Prospect
    Toggle Abstract

    TECHNICAL SESSION As LEDs are gradually setting standards in automotive head-lighting, we already have seen examples of laser headlamps touted as the future of high end automotive lighting. A diode laser pumped remote phosphor based white light source can much better than LEDs in terms of luminance and design flexibility. Diode lasers need smaller optics and hence, can offer sleek and unprecedented design possibilities.
    However, the 445 nm commercial blue laser diodes have a limited external quantum efficiency in the range of roughly 30% and heat management is a crucial issue for stable performance and durability.
    Also, the remote phosphor module is a very important component of the so called laser headlamp and the selection of the phosphor depends on its optical and thermal properties. This talk will focus on some latest developments and highlight the potential and challenges of laser headlamp technology.

  • Every Engineer is a Cost Engineer
    Toggle Abstract

    TECHNICAL SESSION Modern platforms support hundreds of end-customer features across thousands of configurations, and suffer high rates of design change. This creates an overwhelming design challenge that is highly error prone and impossible to optimize for minimum cost. A change of paradigm is needed.

    This session shows how synthesis technology can be applied to vehicle electrical system design, delivering detailed designs that are known to be correct. The process is rapid, and can be combined with dynamic metrics to guide engineers towards optimized solutions.

  • How to EarlyBbuild and Validate your Functional Design on a Real AUTOSAR Based ECU with no need of HW Test Benches
    Toggle Abstract

    TECHNICAL SESSION With vehicle system integrator (VSI) it's easily to create a simulated version of a real AUTOSAR-based system architecture using the full aspect of the AUTOSAR standard; it helps the integration between your algorithm over (Simulink ® and LABVIEW ® ) and a real AUTOSAR Basic SW (BSW). VSI provides a timing simulations and measurements that helps the functional developer and the architect to tune their design models/architecture to fit the system requirements with no need to a real HW test benches. with an instruction set simulation mode (ISS-Mode which describes the target) it's possible to obtain an early full timing specification of the system at the prototype phase.

    This presentations talks about the concepts of integration that can reduce the time for the integration cycles dramatically, saving time & money - and gray hair for reduced risk in the process.

  • Improving Driver Safety through Vehicle to Vehicle (V2V) and V2X Technology
    Toggle Abstract

    TECHNICAL SESSION V2V technology promises to improve vehicle safety by allowing cars to "talk" to each other, and ultimately avoid many crashes, by exchanging basic safety data, such as speed and position, 10 times per second. A range of communication technologies are available for V2x communication including IEEE 802.11p for wireless access in vehicular environments (WAVE). A case study will be presented by Choda Wirless on an antenna based V2X implementation using Mentors Nucleus® RTOS (Real Time Operating System).

  • Every Engineer is a Quality Engineer
    Toggle Abstract

    TECHNICAL SESSION Correct by construction design processes can be dramatically enhanced using simulation techniques, especially early in the design process. But simulation is too often the preserve of specialist staff, who may work disconnected from day-to-day design updates.

    This session highlights simulation and analysis tools that can be used by every electrical engineer, addressing topics ranging from functional verification to component sizing to failure modes & effects analysis. Furthermore, valuable results can be obtained with the simplest of models; and the models themselves can mature as the organization's use of simulation matures.

  • The Best Presentation : Managing multi-screen video and embedded graphics in an Automotive Environment
    Toggle Abstract

    TECHNICAL SESSION Hosting multiple high-resolution displays from a single Multi-Core SoCs presents design challenges both for performance, and graphical image manipulation. Open source technologies such as Wayland and Weston come pre-integrated into GENIVI Linux, but implementing them in production systems is a complex design task. This study will look at use-cases for front and rear-screen displays, utilizing embedded GPUs (Graphics Processing Units), and embedded windows capable of serving up windows for Smart-Hone displays, Android clients, Navigation and multi-media.

  • Managing Complex Design Change
    Toggle Abstract

    TECHNICAL SESSION Constant design change is a key factor in electrical systems & wire harness engineering: unless executed properly change can result in large engineering and manufacturing costs, and potentially serious product liability exposure.

    This session tracks a typical cross domain design change. We show how the change itself can be visualized and life-cycled, data flows controlled, verification undertaken, cost impacts assessed, and updated documentation created. Complex subjects such as out-of-sequence changes and robust communication between OEMs and suppliers are covered.

  • KSK - Kunden Spezifische Kommunikationsnetze (customer specific communication networks) Variant Rich Network Communication Design as the Next Industry Challenge?
    Toggle Abstract

    TECHNICAL SESSION Options and variants arrive in the communication, driving up the complexity of network design another notch. Decisions have to be made which physical layer will carry the information: CAN, Flexray, Ethernet.
    Designing a platform once and reusing it as often as possible is a typical approach, but the implementation of it is extremely challenging. One way (as far as we know the only way) of dealing with this is timing based analysis and synthesis process. This presentation will elaborate on variant handling for the communication design for vehicle platforms.

  • Optimizing & Driving the Harness Factory
    Toggle Abstract

    TECHNICAL SESSION In addition to digital descriptions of wire harnesses to be manufactured it is possible to create a digital description of the processes by which they will be built. From these design and/or manufacturing decisions can be made that minimize production costs and optimize inventory patterns, before flowing data onwards to ERP systems, wire processing equipment, and test equipment.

    This session focuses on software that supports manufacturing & costing engineers, and introduces a brand new tool called Capital Workbooks that automatically creates detailed work instructions for each stage of the assembly process. Together, these technologies can substantially improve the efficiency of harness manufacturing operations.
