Elektrobit’s EB Assist Automotive Data and Time-Triggered Framework (ADTF) is already available as part of IPG Automotive’s CarMaker simulation software, used to develop, test, visualise and validate automated driving functions. Now the companies are partnering to optimise support for mutual customers. The collaboration could also be extended to other subject areas.
As a toolbox for the development of electronic control units, EB Assist ADTF combines a development environment and an interactive work environment. Using drag-and-drop, developers are able to create new configurations by means of the GUI and the available modules.
The data flow between the software components can be immediately defined and executed. Comprehensive libraries and toolboxes for various functionalities are intended to facilitate faster development of driver assistance and automation software modules.
EB Assist ADTF is designed for use both in the lab and on the test track. The coupling with the simulation software CarMaker allows test algorithms of assistance systems or sensor models to be performed in virtual test driving.
