Automotive Technology

In automotive software development, softgate is an experienced and competent partner. In addition to software development, we work on the different test levels. We develop according to your individual requirements and according to our internal quality process which complies with Automotive Spice and ISO 26262.

Embedded Software Development for Automotive

Our services cover development of complex systems (e.g. a motorcycle ABS system), actuator control units, or automotive bus systems with CAN or CAN FD Ethernet. Design and implementation of a test concept which is in accordance with the normative regulations complete our range of services.

In cooperation with Friedrich-Alexander-University, Erlangen-Nuernberg, softgate was able to develop the CAN+ protocol. It allows the transmission of several protocols on a single network infrastructure and thus saves costs and weight.

Our project teams always develop in accordance with current standards and regulations.

Software Development Process

softgate covers the whole development process:
Product lifecycle management / application lifecycle management, specification, requirement engineering, risk analysis, model based development, architecture, and design, tests on every V model level (code review, unit test, module test, integration system, system test, and acceptance tests).

We pay particular attention to automatable tests. For requirement tracing, we often count on an approach that allows us to link the document type of the respective level of development with other levels as well horizontally as vertically.

From Planning to Turn-Key Software Solution

Last but not least, we offer integration of hardware and software, control systems and communication systems, and embedded user interfaces or development of prototypes up to serial software.
