Luxoft LuxTrace delivers 10x improvement in automotive trace timing analysis
March 27, 2018
According to Luxoft, the web-based LuxTrace tools performs large traces up to 10x faster than previous versions, and can be operated by multiple users simultaneously.
MUNICH, GERMANY. Luxoft has announced LuxTrace, a web-based version of the TraceAnalyzer 4.0 timing analysis tool for electronic control units (ECUs), controllers, processors, buses, and networks. According to Luxoft, LuxTrace performs large traces up to 10x faster than previous versions, and can be operated by multiple users simultaneously thanks to a centralized server configuration available from the company.
LuxTrace allows engineers to visualize system timing and formulate their requirements using test case-centric representations. The Python-based tool can be integrated into continuous integration workflows and automatically test complex timing requirements, with a database-backed repository for housing trace data. Test reports are available in the browser or in user-specified formats.
The tool also provides simple templates for general tests cases.
“With autonomous cars around the corner, the need for more accurate and faster real-time software testing has never been more critical,” says Dr. Marek Jersak, Director of Autonomous Drive, Luxoft. “For an engineer, understanding system timing and performance is fundamental to designing and verifying real-time systems. [With LuxTrace] it is now easier to specify timing requirements, while the accuracy of timing measurements has also improved. The ability to perform analyses 10x faster will accelerate the development of driverless projects and ultimately help develop smoother driving experiences.”
