Daimler’s Challenge with Simulation

Automotive giant Daimler wrestles with the best way to incorporate hardware-software verification and integration tools in future designs.

Recently, I talked with the engineers at Daimler Truck North America (DTNA) about trends in automotive hardware-software verification and integration. There were two main themes that ran throughout my presentation:

  1. Growing system complexity and cost combined with shrinking time-to-market cycles means that model-based, IP-rich simulations will replace many hardware-in-the-loop-based verification techniques.
  2. Hardware is indeed becoming a commodity, but it will never completely be replaced by software. Furthermore, hardware will evolve into tangential markets.
