At this year’s HANOVER FAIR, in-tech was awarded the INDUSTRY AWARD
2016 with the “best of certificate” in the automotive category for the
systems orangeCtrl, orangeHiL and orangeRack. The industry prize has
been awarded once a year since 2006 by Huber Verlag für Neue Medien (a
German new media publisher) for particularly advanced industry products
and solutions. “This award completes our very successful fair
appearance. Besides many interesting conversations with potential
customers, visitors and journalists, the presentation by our industry
4.0 expert Dr. Klaus Wiltschi was well-attended”, in-tech manager
Christian Wagner stated.
As part of the INDUSTRY AWARD 2016, the following products were awarded the “best of” certificate in the automotive sector.
The orangeCtrl system consists of a hardware box and a complete Linux
operating system. The box is normally mounted in the trunk of the car
and directly connected to the relevant vehicle busses (CAN, FlexRay, LIN).
By the direct connection to available bus interfaces, almost the entire
communication within the vehicle can be intercepted. An Android app is
also provided. This solution picks up the sensor data at the CAN
bus and transfers the information wirelessly via WiFi or Bluetooth to
mobile terminal devices. The app visualizes and controls arbitrary
vehicle data in real-time.
This flexible measurement system enables energy supply and energy
management for all the measurement technology in the vehicle and enables
furthermore quick access to all communication busses via live analyses.
An integrated breakout unit provides all important communication
interfaces to the vehicle in order to connect data loggers, tablets and
PCs. CAN, LIN, Flexray, OBD
or analog signals: a variety of signals in the vehicle can be gathered
and measured easily, depending on the case of application.
The HiL system for component testing fulfills all requirements to a
full-value HiL testing station by providing a real-time test and
simulation environment. orangeHiL is modular-based and provides a
distributed structure across different areas due to modern Ethercat
technologies. Particular control units such as transmission control,
stability control and similar can be tested independently from the
vehicle at the test station. Therefore, a real vehicle in a real
environment is simulated for the control unit. The ECU is then connected (as later in the vehicle) to sensors and actuators via CAN, LIN,
Flexray bus systems and analog/digital/PWM interfaces. The results can
be received wirelessly via the orangeCtrl app developed by in-tech. The
Android solution gathers sensor data at the CAN
bus and the HiL system and transfers the information via WiFi or
Bluetooth to mobile terminal devices. Furthermore, the app enables users
to control the HiL system.
