Our customers need skills, competence and rigour in managing complex projects.
EMA is able to meet their needs, supporting them throughout the project life cycle.
As software is becoming more and more complex in vehicles, Car Makers and OEMs require TIER1 and TIER2 suppliers to comply to Automotive SPICE in their software projects. This guarantees that customers and suppliers work with consistent and measurable standards to improve software quality and reduce risks of potential issues in later phases.
The advent of electric mobility marked a decisive leap forward in the integration of multiple safety-critical ECUs in the vehicle environment, with the increased need of new devices interconnected in a renovated powertrain architecture. The car makers are now trying to keep up with the innovation pace without compromises on safety.
Time is always critical during production. The development of specialized and optimized systems to speed up the construction of the electronic devices is of paramount importance for the constructor to reach the market rapidly. The implementation of cost-effective solutions that interact with different tools and sensor in an intelligent way is a critical asset for an efficient plant.
The capabilities of microcontrollers have much increased in the latest years, allowing for more complex applications also in the automotive industry. Even when overly complex operating systems are not necessary, structured, layered, configurable and easily testable SW is required to develop reliable solutions more quickly.
The European Train Control System (ETCS) is the signalling and control component of the European Rail Traffic Management System (ERTMS). The ETCS will introduce a cross-border interoperability through Europe by creating a single standard for railway signalling thanks to a continuous communication-based signalling system, avoiding train movement interruption and ensuring passengers’ safety.
The customer has to design and manufacture a Seat Control Unit (SCU) for a new vehicle, requiring support on software design and development. The SCU receives commands through buttons and CAN network, it actuates motors and stores user-defined positions. It forwards other commands to a slave LIN ECU for additional functionalities.
Automotive Aftermarket requires car components to replace original parts produced by OEMs when they become worn or damaged. These equivalent components must work at the same way of the original ones, but they are usually designed and produced in a different way. This job is often carried out without the help of the original component specification and a reverse engineering is needed to study its behavior.
