Our Competencies

Software development: We program electronic control units to govern several vehicle parts.

We program in C/C++ and use the most efficient and advanced development approaches such as Model Based Design and Basic Software Code generation in AUTOSAR environment.

All our development processes are efficient too, like agile V-Cycle, SPICE, and bilateral traceability to client specifications. We guarantee its reliability with quality assurance, tools, configuration and project management support processes.

Our code complies with coding safety, security, portability and reliability rules (MISRA,ISO26262).

Software Validation: The Kineton automotive validation department is an industry leader, and we cover the complete automotive validation lifecycle both in our own laboratories and at the client site, including:

Test Case definition

HIL configuration

HIL validation

In-vehicle validation

The development is referred to all main architecture layers:

SW Architecture

Application

Basic Software (BSW/CDD/MCAL)

HIL Configuration and Modelling: One of the most difficult technical services we provide is the configuration of simulators, insomuch as we are one of the few companies in Italy able to configure a simulator (dSPACE, NI) from scratch and deliver it to the customer perfectly functional and customized according to their needs.

Specifically, we at Kineton:

Choose the simulator that best reflects the client’s needs, selecting the most suitable interface;

Develop and actualize all of the hardware connections between the simulator and the ECU being tested;

Actualize the software configuration for the exchange of information between the simulator and the ECU;

Implement the engine and vehicle simulation model;

HIL and In-Vehicle Validation:

Software validation is carried out in two different testing environments:

Simulated environment

Vehicle

In both cases, we perform all of the tests necessary to certify that the software functions properly.

In particular, we run tests on the following parts of software:

Safety and diagnosis

Vehicle functions

CAN and LIN communication protocol

As automotive software validation is one of the main things we do at Kineton, we have created four testing labs:

Two laboratories (Naples, Turin) for tests in simulated environments;

Two laboratories (Naples, Turin) for tests in vehicles;

Our testing activities are done not only in our labs, but also at various client locations, where we develop test automation and carefully report the work we do.

We run tests on all the ECUs present in a vehicle: powertrain, body, ABS, cluster, infotainment, and more.
