Software Engineering

Today, software in vehicles is increasingly becoming complex and growing exponentially with millions of lines of code. Vehicle manufacturers are realizing that traditional ways of software coding are not sufficient to meet stringent quality norms and tightening schedules. Model Based Design approach will ease the design complexity and help you meet required quality standards.

Plant Model

Development of scalable controllers for complex multi domain systems & subsystems requires multiple iterations and huge infrastructure investments. KPIT's expertise in mathematical and physics-based plant modeling reduces the cost and development time, by enabling desktop-based closed loop evaluation of controllers. The plant models are developed with parameters that can be tuned to match field data. Further, these plant models can be tailored for multiple usage viz., sizing analysis, closed loop MIL/SIL/HIL testing and advanced control engineering. KPIT has a team of experts, who develop plant models using tools such as GT Power, MATLAB as per your requirement
Plant Model Development
System / component Model development (GT Power, MATLAB/Simulink, SimScape, Dymola, Python)
Plant Model Correlation with field data
Software Integration

KPIT works spans across AUTOSAR & Non-AUTOSAR software development, integration and validation. AUTOSAR related development includes AUTOSAR Composition creation, Application layer integration for AUTOSAR Components, RTE Generation for entire application components, Integration with key diagnostics functionalities such as DEM and FIM, Integration of Complex Device Drivers (CDD's) and Integration with BSW modules. Non-AUTOSAR development includes integration with key diagnostics module & integration of application component with legacy BSW modules.
AUTOSAR S/W Integration
AUTOSAR based S/W integration for Powertrain controls

There is a shift in Verification and Validation (V&V) approach. In the traditional V-cycle, left side is associated with development whereas the right side for validation. Now V&V has shifted more towards the left side of V-cycle, with development and validation tools brought together. KPIT offers a combination of methodologies and tools to provide high quality V&V solutions.
