in-tech represented at the Automotive Electronics Congress and the ConCarExpo

Wednesday, June 15th, 2016

Connected car, security, alternative drive technologies and intelligent validation – these are in-tech’s keywords for this year’s fairs. The engineering company will present its in-house developments orangeHiL and orangeCtrl at the International Congress on Advances in Automotive Electronics in Ludwigsburg (stand 6+7 on the ground floor) and the ConCarExpo (stand 33) in Düsseldorf. Both products have recently been awarded the “best of” certificate at HANOVER FAIR as part of the INDUSTRY AWARD 2016.

“We are glad to present our expertise and our vision in Ludwigsburg and for the first time in Düsseldorf at ConCarExpo. We also want to emphasize how important information exchange with present companies and experts is to us.” in-tech manager Christian Wagner stated. The Automotive Electronics Congress takes place on June 14 and 15 at the “Forum im Schlosspark” in Ludwigsburg. ConCarExpo is organized on June 29 and 30 in Düsseldorf by VDI Wissensforum. in-tech will present the following products at both events:

orangeCtrl: 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. Also provided is an Android app. 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.

orangeHiL: 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 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.
