Elektrobit (EB) today introduced a cloud-based tool for end-to-end verification of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and autopilot (AD) systems .
Erlangen, Germany, October 16, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — As a global provider of visionary embedded and connected software products for the automotive industry, Elektrobit (EB) today launched a cloud-based tool for End-to-end verification of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and Autopilot (AD) systems. The new EB Assist Test Lab is available on Microsoft Azure, providing a single solution for distributed teams to more easily manage PB-level driving scene data generated during real-world and simulated test drives during verification and verification. Collaborate and ultimately bring the latest features to production faster.
- EB Assist Test Lab provides engineers with a powerful tool that can dramatically increase efficiency, streamline team workflows and bring systems and functions to production faster
- Cloud services including Microsoft Azure provide greater flexibility and scalability
For now, the automotive engineering team is forced to use multiple, often uncoordinated tools to handle the entire verification and verification process. As automotive systems become more complex and data becomes more dense, this process becomes correspondingly more challenging and complex. The expansion of these complex systems is even more of a problem. The process involves a range of people including test drivers, engineers, data specialists, IT professionals, and project managers, often located in different locations around the world, making data compilation and management more difficult.
The EB Assist Test Lab provides a unique end-to-end verification and verification methodology that brings together a “one-stop” solution that brings together existing tools on the market and complements key gaps with additional features. It covers the entire test cycle from data collection to data analysis, including optimized collaborative processes, integration with third-party tools and services, data processing and management. Comprehensive goals such as workflow improvement, efficiency improvement and eventual acceleration will be fully realized through the new EB products.
“We work closely with our customers to identify the difficulties in the current testing process and thoroughly build a new product to meet the needs of the validation and verification workflow,” said Martin Schleicher, Executive Vice President, Business Management, Elektrobit. “In addition, we have identified a network of best-in-class providers of cloud services, simulation technology and AI to provide the ultimate automotive test solution. We are proud to announce that at our partner Microsoft Supported by Azure’s EB Assist Test Lab, Microsoft’s Azure cloud computing platform will bring huge benefits to our customers, including global scalability, unparalleled flexibility and enterprise-class security, enabling automotive manufacturing companies to Quickly test and analyze data to get to market faster and eliminate the burden of infrastructure implementation and maintenance.”
By partnering with cloud partners such as Microsoft and data center providers such as Equinix, EB Assist Test Lab can scale infinitely to handle today’s increasingly complex systems equipped with radar, lidar and high-resolution cameras. Massive Data. Currently, a car’s average daily data collection is hundreds of MB per second, and in the next generation of cars, this number is expected to increase to several GB per second.
Collecting and storing data on a large scale and safely, and being available anytime, anywhere is critical to delivering automated driving solutions. “Microsoft is working with Elektrobit to help them cope with the increasingly challenging and time-consuming testing and verification process to accelerate the development of advanced driving applications,” said Sanjay Ravi, general manager of the automotive industry at Microsoft. ”
A recent McKinsey study showed that with the development and integration of automotive software, the workload of the verification and verification categories is experiencing rapid growth, with an expected growth of 10% per year between 2020 and 2030. Given the increasing demand for ADAS and AD systems, verification and verification is expected to account for approximately 29% of the entire automotive software market ($24 billion) by 2030.
The EB Assist Test Lab is available now, see the official website for more details.
