research & Development for autotech
Diadrom’s offering in R&D includes development and verification of built-in software. i.e., software that is part of the product itself. The software is in the built-in computers (control units) that control / control physical module functions, such as the engine (ECM control unit) and gearbox (TECU control unit) in a vehicle. Communication via networks in vehicles has enabled an explosion of new functions, such as adaptive cruise control and automatic braking in the event of a collision risk.
Diadrom usually works with what is often called “Base Tech”. The term encompasses basic functions of diagnostics, i.e., configuration, software update, calibration, troubleshooting and logging. Previously, car manufacturers (or dominant T1 suppliers) usually developed the control and regulation functionality in the software internally, but in step with increased complexity and increasingly tough requirements for development speed, Diadrom sees new possible forms of delivery.
In 2015, Diadrom together with LG Innotek developed a reversing camera for the passenger car manufacturer CEVT (see Customer Case LG for details). This type of security-critical system requires extensive process control and rigid verification
