Comprehensive Support for Automotive Equipment Development

The automotive industry is set to remain one of the cornerstones of modern industry, with plans for the development of a wide variety of next-generation technologies. These include technologies for safety, driver assistance technologies for the implementation of advanced driver assistance systems (ADASs), and technologies for autonomous driving featuring intelligent transport systems (ITSs) and connected cars.

Software development is playing an ever-greater role in the development of these in-vehicle and management systems. Likewise, the demand for further safety improvement calls for new development practices that involve early-stage system design and the use of simulation environments for early-stage operational testing during the development of safety-critical in-vehicle systems. The aims are to reduce cost and to enable hazardous testing to be undertaken on a very large scale.

eSOL TRINITY provides powerful support to automotive companies by supplying the means to overcome the serious challenges that these represent, covering the three core areas of: [1] Solutions (consulting and professional services, etc.), [2] Tools, and [3] Engineer training.
