Understanding and Using the SAE J2534-1 API to Access Vehicle Networks

With the increase in vehicle electronics, the need to gather data from the vehicle has never been greater. From vehicle development, through vehicle test to vehicle validation, engineers are required to collect data from the vehicle's network. The SAE J2534-1 API (Recommended Practice for Pass-Thru Vehicle Programming) gives engineers the tool to collect vehicle data from multiple network types including CAN, ISO15765, J1850, ISO9141 and Chrysler SCI, using standard J2534 interface devices. In addition, the aftermarket can access the vehicle's OBDII information from the diagnostic connector.

Keys to Creating a Cybersecurity Process from the J3061 Process Framework

Connected vehicles are increasingly seen as a potential target for cybersecurity attacks. A key differentiator for the automotive industry is the use of cyber-physical systems, where a successful cybersecurity attack could affect physical entities. Often involving embedded electronics and real time control, these systems require different solutions in addition to established IT security principles and reactive responses to threats. Cybersecurity needs to be designed and built into cyber-physical systems throughout the development lifecycle to provide defense in depth.

Introduction to the Secure Microkernel, seL4

2019-07-16
Security continues to be an ever-growing concern in more and more design spaces. There are daily articles about security breaches and there is a need for much higher security through the entire system stack. Thorough testing of systems can lead to stronger security in systems, but testing can only expose so many vulnerabilities. Formal methods is another solution that ensures specific behaviors will not occur. seL4 is the first formally proven microkernel and it is open-source. This makes it a great solution for systems that need strong security.

Controller Area Network (CAN) for Vehicle Applications

2019-05-23
The Controller Area Network has become the standard of choice for most automotive manufacturers. Approved for use as an ISO and EPA diagnostic network, its usage continues to grow. This seminar covers the theory and use of the CAN protocol, and its applications in the automotive industry. Details on how the CAN protocol and other standards (J2411, J2284, J1939, ISO 11898, etc.) complement each other will be presented. Attendees will learn about CAN application layers; the latest J1939, J2284, J2411, and IDB standards, regulations, and implementation requirements; and details of device hardware and software interfaces.

Advanced Power Electronics in Automotive Applications

2019-05-07
It’s estimated that over 40% of the on-board components in the entire car are electronic based and that percentage is expected to rise with the growth of hybrid and autonomous vehicles and will continue to be an enabling technology for a wide range of future loads with new features and functions. From lighting, infotainment, and safety systems, to powertrain systems and beyond, power electronics has become one of the most important areas of the automotive subsystem and bringing this technology to non-electrical engineers will help bridge a knowledge gap that will drive teams forward quicker and more efficiently.

Design Considerations for Secure Embedded Systems

2019-04-22
Embedded hardware is everywhere you look today from your vehicle’s infotainment system to refrigerator to medical devices and everything else in-between. With so much exposure one would think that such devices are secure against attack; however, sadly for many devices this is not the case. For proof, just look no further than your local news reports. They are full of reports on devices being hacked. So, as engineers, how do we go about first identifying and mitigating (or capitalizing) the potential security vulnerabilities within these devices?

Introduction to Radar for Automotive Applications

2019-04-08
This introduction to radar focuses on understanding how radars work and the trade offs that must be made to achieve its specified performance, focusing on applications to automotive safety and autonomy. The class includes demonstrations of radar signal outputs and describes the chain of hardware and software processing found in most radar systems. Participants will be exposed to all aspects of radar design at a level detailed enough to understand system engineering estimates for the major functions by examining the basic functions of radars, from the waveform generation in the transmitter, all the way to target detection in the receiver.

High Voltage Vehicle Safety Systems

Anytime
This four-part course from SAE training partner FutureTech* is most beneficial if completed before servicing hybrid, plug-in and electric vehicles. These vehicles contain high voltage DC and AC safety systems that are monitored by vehicle systems controllers that will maintain a safety barrier between the vehicle operator and the vehicle body/chassis to mitigate the possibility of electrical shock. This presentation will provide the technical information and background to know how these systems operate and affect vehicle operation and driveability.

Introduction to Hybrid Electric Vehicle Systems

Anytime
Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV) models currently populating the vehicle electrification landscape indicate their dominance in the market. Although electric, plug-in, and fuel cell vehicles are making inroads in the market, the HEV stands as the market leader in adoption, and manufacturers have no plans on diminishing HEV production. HEV powertrain operation is totally different from the traditional vehicle. It is essential to understand the various operating modes and how failure modes in the hybrid system affect its operation.
