Follow the Money -- Latest Challenges in the Automotive Industry and how they are affecting OEMs, customers and YOU

Environmental quality, dependence on petroleum, the decline in auto sales and changing consumer requirements are driving fundamental changes at the auto makers. Just follow the money and you see investments in autonomy, shaving payrolls in ICE powertrain and electric vehicles on the mind of many governments. All of these changes are driving monumental changes to our vehicle network architectures. These changes require new toolsets and new approaches. Get a whirlwind tour of the Intrepid’s new software and vehicle networks tools to meet the challenge

Wait! I Only Have a 1TB Drive!?! Welcome to the Age of Autonomous Vehicle Logging

In the days of J1850, one could easily log an entire month of data on a 512 MB memory card. With the advent of electric and hybrid vehicles, one could log an entire shift of data from a vehicle. Autonomous vehicles produce on the order of 5-10 Gb per second! That could fill your laptop in minutes! How do you deal with logging Terabytes of data? Are the days of “sneaker-net” back again? This presentation will provide a look into SerDes sensors, LIDAR, RADAR and autonomous architectures, and how to log data from these sensors/architectures.

Cut the Cord -- Advances in gathering data remotely from your captive test fleet and remote test benches

Gathering data manually is labor intensive, and getting the vehicle in hand is a challenge. With the financial pressures to reduce a captive test fleet, this only amplifies the issues. Whether you have a large fleet or a small fleet, or remote test benches, we discuss the challenges of remote data capture and providing solutions to connect wirelessly to your vehicles.

Automotive Ethernet PHY Linking: The Missing Link! (Joint Presentation by Keysight and Intrepid Control Systems)

Those familiar with Automotive Ethernet know that each connection has a “master” and “slave”, and this refers to how they link together. But few fully understand the process of PHY linking and what it can mean for you. This presentation will provide a full overview of the linking process.

Vehicle Spy X -- Vehicle Spy as a cross-platform solution (macOS / Linux / Web / Windows)

The world does not revolve around Windows alone. If you are in autonomy or using ROS, or have been a lifelong Apple user, you have probably wished for a Vehicle Spy for Linux or macOS. Finally, your wishes are beginning to come true. Come get a sneak peak at Vehicle Spy X, the evolution of Vehicle Spy a true cross-platform (Windows, Mac, Linux, web) solution with a fully scriptable Python interface.

Amazon AWS IoT Connected vehicles for low cost data capture (Joint presentation by Amazon AWS and Intrepid Control Systems)

A customizable low-cost vehicle network interface is often desired in enabling various consumer and after-market applications. Those devices usually come in the form of an OBDII dongle, but the existing products on the market pose numerous limitations. There are only a few devices that support custom programming capability and even a fewer devices that allow in-software access to raw data across multiple types of vehicle networks. Even with the right hardware, addressing scalability, reliability, and security can be difficult when deploying connected vehicle solutions. Join us and learn how Intrepid’s neoOBD2 line of wireless interfaces, powered by rich set of AWS services, enables a cost-efficient and reliable way for you to quickly develop, deploy, and manage your own custom connected vehicle solutions.

CAN Fuzzing - What it is, what it can do and why you need to do it!

“Fuzzing” is the process of sending large amounts of random or pseudo-random data on the bus to find potential vulnerabilities. Many cybersecurity trainees get their first exposure to Vehicle Spy by creating some function block scripts to fuzz on CAN or otherwise brute-force potential diagnostic requests. Vehicle Spy R3D is Intrepid’s first full-feature CAN fuzzing tool, implemented to perform OEM-level pen test/vuln testing functions. Get an overview of fuzzing, various techniques used in vulnerability testing, and the new automation for these tests in Vehicle Spy R3D. Future plans for Ethernet fuzzing will also be discussed.

Media Converters for Automotive Ethernet & Applications in Testing / Validation

Connecting your PC’s NIC to an Automotive Ethernet ECU is just one of the applications for a media converter. But it’s certainly not the only one. What happens when you need to connect mismatched data rates? Convert a managed switch into 100/1000BASE-T1? Create a new port with a USB to Automotive Ethernet dongle? Take a look at the various use cases for media converters, and some unique products that can save you time and money.

Active Taps -- When You Need a "Man In The Middle"

Latency testing is impossible when adding switches into your DUT. You cannot depend on the Windows clock and freeware to give you a reliable measurement. When troubleshooting, techniques like “divide and conquer” are difficult when introducing a switch — is the switch dropping the packet? If so, why? Sometimes, you really need to know when a frame “hits the wire”. All of these problems are solved with an active tap. Learn how active taps work, and how they are used in these applications and more.

Analog I/O with Intrepid's RAD IO 2 Series -- An Open System for Analog IO

Many analog I/O solutions like to “entangle” you in their toolchain, leaving your pocketbook even lighter. They love to charge you extra for the isolation you need. What if we told you that you can have an open system and you can get it at a much lower price? See how the RAD IO 2 Open I/O solution provides channel-to-channel isolation at an affordable price.

Making Networks "Play Nice With Each Other" -- How to program a custom gateway without spending $20K+

Old test equipment and benches may not be compatible with your next generation. So what do you do when your dyno works with the old protocol but can’t support the new protocol? Can your testing support the massive data rates in contemporary vehicle networks? No worries! Use your neoVI as a high-performance embedded gateway. Make a stand-alone “translator”, “custom gateway”, decryption device, or filter. Translate between CAN and CAN FD, CAN and LIN, or even CAN and Ethernet!

SOME/IP - A Service Oriented Architecture

Ethernet and TCP/IP were not developed with the automotive use case in mind. Therefore, we need to have some “middleware” that bridges between TCP/IP and the services we need to access and control in the vehicle. Service Oriented MiddlewarE over IP or SOME/IP bridges this gap. It provides a messaging header and payload between devices, a way to make requests and get responses, and to discover/manage services. Think of it as the equivalent of a “last mile delivery”. We will provide an overview of what SOME/IP is, and how to work with it.

We got all the data... NOW WHAT?!? Automated Analysis of Data with Integrated Post Anaysis (IPA) and DataSpy

Often our engineering efforts focus on getting all the potentially useful data. But that amounts to a huge “haystack” which we must sift through to find that “needle”. You need a 21st century solution, one that can automatically process the data and present reports to share throughout your organization. You need IPA and DataSpy. See an overview and demonstration of processing datasets of 1+ TB in just a few seconds.

Advances in ECU Flashing Solutions

Flashing ECUs within Vehicle Spy has been long absent. At the same time, new methods have been developed for our changing architectures. Not only flashing via DoIP and SoAd are now possible, a new Flash View has been created to allow you to quickly create flash “recipes” for flashing ECUs. This presentation will provide an overview of how to flash via Vehicle Spy, expanded to include more use cases.
