Modular Connectivity for Simulation and Testing Systems
As code becomes the center of the software-defined vehicle (SDV), it is more important than ever to continuously examine performance and reduce unpredictable behaviors through a comprehensive testing and simulation framework. An optimal testing and simulation strategy will result in reduced time to market and lower costs, providing vehicle manufacturers with major competitive advantages.
The automotive industry has rapidly shifted to code-centric architectures, yet the variety of testing and simulation environments makes it complex for co-development teams to execute. Connext Drive provides the data-centric software framework needed to efficiently manage the complexity of modern testing and simulating across environments. Based on the Data Distribution Service (DDSTM) protocol, Connext Drive is a data-centric communications framework that supports modularity, co-development and interoperability between the different components. With Connext Drive, engineers can simulate, develop and test new features faster and more independently. Individual elements of the vehicle can be simulated and tested without completing the overall design, reducing time to market while mitigating risks.
Connext Drive interoperates across systems including cloud, protocols, operating systems, gaming engines and leading simulation and testing environments. It enables a modular development environment that scales to test entire vehicles and complex scenarios.
