Body control systems are an important component for increasing the comfort and safety of modern vehicles. They consist of several functional parts, usually distributed across multiple ECUs in the vehicle. To develop and test new or improved functionalities, dSPACE offers end-to-end solutions, starting with early simulation and real proof of concept with rapid prototyping systems, through production code generation, to subsequent testing with software in the loop (SIL) and hardware in the loop (HIL). In particular, test and development environments require a high degree of flexibility and scalability, as the requirements of the functional parts are different, e.g., interior lighting has completely different specifications to air conditioning or seat control.

With dSPACE tools, you can focus on developing and testing all essential areas for body & comfort electronics.

Body Electronics
  • Airbags
  • Seat belt tensioner
  • Central locking system
  • Immobilizer
  • Outdoor lighting
  • Front/rear wipers and defroster
  • Auxiliary heater
  • Power windows
  • Mirror control
  • ...and much more
Comfort Electronics
  • Heating, ventilation, air conditioning (HVAC)
  • Seat control
  • Interior lighting
  • Sunroof control
  • Trunk opener
  • Noise suppression
  • ...and much more

dSPACE solutions support you in developing, testing, and verifying these functionalities. While new developments in body & comfort electronics will overlap more and more with infotainment, cabin monitoring, automotive cyber security, and connectivity (V2X), developers can also benefit from a wide range of dSPACE solutions in such domains.

HIL Testing

Central Test Method for Validating ECUs

Central Test Method for Validating ECUs

The dSPACE HIL test systems provide a simulated environment for efficient and reproducible validation of real ECUs in the laboratory 24/7. This increases test coverage and shortens validation times significantly. Our HIL solutions cover all vehicle domains from autonomous driving to zero emissions – starting with component testing and up to virtual vehicle testing.

Production Software Development

Optimized Production Software Development

Optimized Production Software Development

The central challenges in production software development include the optimization of RAM resources, run time, and integration into the overall system. Furthermore, it must be possible to split the software in such a way that regular software updates are possible. And before the final software release, special validation and often a release process are required.

Consulting & Engineering Services

Development support from start to finish

Development support from start to finish

Developing complex E/E systems and software with ever more safety-critical functions, especially in the area of autonomous systems, raises the question of guaranteeing function reliability. That's why dSPACE offers end-to-end expertise in functional safety, test strategy development as well as verification and validation in complex E/E processes - to support you from the earliest project stages to homologation.

dSPACE systems are easy to get up and running – however, if a project is more complex, if individual solutions are needed or if there is high time pressure, you can also trust dSPACE's fast, competent and reliable engineering services.
