Vehicles the world over are required to be certified according to specific regulations in order to be fit for sale and to be on the road.  One of the core tenets of UNECE WP.29 is that once type-approved, components or systems may not be changed neither in software, nor in hardware, unless there is an updated Type Approval.  Automotive engineers are faced with a dilemma – how to ensure compliance of software updated through the vehicle lifecycle? Aurora Labs’ Software Intelligence product suite enables manufacturers to monitor and track all software behavior and changes, down to the line of code, and document any changes, even in the most minute shifts.

Eliminate unnecessary documentation for software updates

UNECE WP.29 requires that OEMs “shall contact the relevant Type Approval Authority to seek an extension or new certification for the affected systems, for all updates, except for: If the update does not impact the compliance of any type approved systems, for example to fix software bugs, the vehicle manufacturer may conduct the update without need to contact the Type Approval Authority.” Aurora Labs provides specific evidence for software updates that do not affect functionality behavior. This evidence and documentation can be used to provide type-approval exemptions for non-affected functionality.

Reduce Type Approval processing time

By providing detailed and accurate evidence of software update affect on vehicle functionality, engineers can pinpoint evidence to the affected areas and save vital time on documentation and procedures.
