No matter if CAN or FlexRay are to be extended, partly replaced or if new use cases are to be developed: with the PREEvision design tool, Ethernet networks or clusters can be described comprehensibly, clearly and from scratch. A dedicated user interface helps to design services and service interfaces, to implement the interfaces with software components and to define the IP-based communication including the configuration of VLANs and switches.
Besides dedicated tables for data input several diagrams in PREEvision guarantee a good overview: quality of service mechanisms of switches can be graphically modelled with the QoS switch diagram and the network diagram provides a highlighting for VLANs. Service-oriented architectures (SOA) can be developed with the UML-based SOA diagram. And packet diagrams visualize the relations and dependencies of services.
Based on a service design, PREEvision generates the corresponding software types and software interfaces and can automatically connect the services. A good deal of the communication artefacts is also automatically generated. Furthermore, PREEvision checks for completeness and secures a AUTOSAR-compliant description. PREEvision 8.5 supports AUTOSAR classic to version 4.2.2 – PREEvision 9.0 will bring an extension to AUTOSAR 4.3 and AUTOSAR adaptive.
