Linux: Entering a New Era with Automotive Software-in-the-Loop Test Tools


Trends such as advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous driving (AD) make software the differentiating factor in the automotive industry. To keep pace with innovations and to shorten development cycles, testing of electronic control units (ECUs) must shift-left.

The use of software-in-the-loop (SiL) simulations is a recognized and established approach to frontload test activities to earlier development phases. Recently, Linux-based simulations have become increasingly popular, which also heralds a new era for test tools. This 30-minute Webinar shows how to enter this era by providing interactive and cloud-based SiL simulations on Linux.

An audience Q&A follows the technical presentation.
