AUTOSAR for Agricultural Electronics

The agricultural machinery market demands ever more powerful customer functionalities like those of Precision Farming. The high diversity of products with low production volumes results in a high proportion of software development costs in systems. To date, AUTOSAR has not been ready for the agricultural machinery market because the network standard ISOBUS was not supported. To bridge this gap, ITK Engineering has developed a solution which expands AUTOSAR with ISOBUS.

Trusted Execution Environments in Vehicles

Trusted Execution Environments (TEEs) can be applied to harden electronic control unit software against attackers. ITK Engineering compares existing TEE approaches and highlights their differences. TEE approaches isolate security-relevant from non-security-relevant software and, thus, reduce the surface for attacks on security-relevant software components.

ISO 26262 - Consequences on automated test bays

Ensuring the functional safety of mechatronic systems is a sensitive issue in the development of automobiles, medical equipment and aircraft. Especially in the automotive sector the standard ISO 26262 applies and considerably affects the development and validation of the system depending on its risk potential. But which points of contact can arise in the validation of safety-critical systems? The answer gives ITK.
