Production Heavy Duty Diesel Engine Controls Software Development

One of Pi Innovo’s engineering services is to provide experienced engineers to serve as an integrated portion of a customer’s team on production programs.  Pi Innovo has been involved in developing & validating production software for a variety of features within a large Tier 1’s standard engine control system.   Most recently, a team of systems and software engineers was provided to extend the customer’s team during periods of intensive Euro VI development work. The work included:

High level & low level requirements
Specification development
System modelling
Test development for a variety of features within the engine control system including new diagnostics for engine functions required by Euro VI legislation
Developed the Layer 2 safety system using EGAS as a guideline in preparation for the day when ISO 26262 is extended to include heavy duty
System design in Simulink and writing the corresponding test specs
The experienced gained by working as a portion of an integrated Tier 1 team developing, validating, and launching production engine control software continues to build Pi Innovo’s overall production engine control software expertise.
