QTronic GmbH

Tool Vendor

QTronic provides tools and services for model-based development. Our outstanding software tools are used by developers at Mercedes-Benz, AMG, BOSCH, ZF, IAV, Continental, Toyota, Honda, SAIC and others. Silver and TestWeaver support highly automated validation and test of virtual ECUs on Windows PCs. This helps to identify design problems much earlier and faster with much lower costs than ever possible.

Silver
Type
Virtual ECU on Windows PC
Functionalities
Silver is a tool used by automotive development engineers to simulate ECUs in closed loop with a vehicle model on Windows PC. This way, work on control development, test, and calibration can be selectively shifted from road, test rigs, and HiL to Windows PC where it can be performed faster, cheaper and without blocking limited resources. Silver provides built-in support for automotive standards such as ASAP2/A2L, MDF, CAN, and XCP to perform co-execution of control software and of vehicle simulation models. Silver also supports the FMI (Functional Mockup Interface), which greatly simplifies the import of models from simulation tools such as Dymola, SimulationX, MapleSim, AMESim, SIMPACK or JModelica into the Silver environment. Silver is a product partner of The MathWorks, which translates into seamless integration of Silver into the MATLAB®/Simulink tool chain. Silver can be connected to CANape or INCA for measurement and calibration, or can be used for rapid-control prototyping via CAN. Silver provides interfaces for test automation with Python, TestWeaver, ECU-TEST, TPT and others. Advanced testing support: range check for all measurements and characteristics, detection of common software bugs, measurement of speed and stack consumption for ECU tasks, back-to-back tests, code coverage and other criteria recommended by ISO26262. Silver is in use for control development at Mercedes-Benz, BMW, AMG, IAV, Continental and others.

TestWeaver
Type
Automated System Validation
Functionalities
TestWeaver (testing without test scripts) is a tool that autonomously searches for weak points and bugs in control software and calibration data. Users have to supply a simulation model (implemented e.g. using MATLAB®/Simulink, Silver or HiL) and to specify computable quality indicators. TestWeaver constructs automatically driving scenarios that minimize these indicators. This helps to find bugs early and with much less effort than otherwise possible. A typical ECU (software + calibration data) is checked within 24 hours on a standard PC. The automatic test case generation of TestWeaver can run with MiL, SiL, or HiL setups and allows to achieve a much higher test coverage with less effort than otherwise possible. TestWeaver is in use for software development at Mercedes-Benz, AMG, Bosch, ZF, SAIC and others.
