Research reveals budget re-allocation to prioritize UI and UX development
According to a research study conducted on behalf of Qt Group, vehicle manufacturers are directing development budgets toward improving user interfaces and the user experience (UI/UX) to enhance their competitiveness.
Findings showed that more than half (52%) of respondents plan to spend at least 30% of their product development budget on improving UI/UX in vehicles over the next 12 months, with 23% planning to invest between 40-49% of that budget in UI/UX. In contrast, only 25% of respondents allocated above 30% of their budget towards UI/UX in the previous year, indicating growing recognition of the link between UI/UX and business success.

Precise, responsive and stable temperature control for material tests and test benches
Temperature control is a critical factor in stress and load testing during the development of alternative drive solutions, batteries, materials and other vehicle components.
This type of testing often dictates that the heat transfer fluid (HTF) used is a water-ethylene glycol mixture. For these applications, Huber has expanded its portfolio to include temperature control systems designed and tested specifically for use with water-ethylene glycol over the temperature range of -45°C to 95°C for the auto industry.

UniCarRagil project concludes: development details for four AV concepts revealed
The UniCarRagil project, which brought together 16 universities and companies at 10 locations in Germany to conduct interdisciplinary R&D on autonomous vehicles, concluded at the end of May. Disruptive modular architectures in hardware and software for automated vehicle concepts were developed, and four fully automated prototypes for the shuttle, cab, bus and cargo sectors were built.
IPG Automotive contributed its CarMaker simulation platform. For the sub-project on configuration and setup of a SIL and HIL environment for modular validation, IPG Automotive worked closely with the Institute of Automotive Engineering at the Technical University of Darmstadt (FZD), with its focus on modular validation, motion control and safe stopping.

Frontloading verification efforts using requirements-in-the-loop
Bernd Holzmueller, senior expert systems engineering at ITK Engineering, reveals how a requirements-in-the-loop approach can identify inconsistent, incomplete and incorrect behavior using simulation at a very early stage in a project.
What are the fundamentals of a requirements-in-the-loop approach?
Over the past ~20 years, several ‘in-the-loop’ approaches, including hardware-in-the-loop and software-in-the-loop, have been introduced in the industry, aiming to shift test effort from the final system to earlier development phases using appropriate virtualization of the environment for the system under test.

The rising role of synthetic data in the automotive industry
Synthetic data refers to computer-generated data designed to mimic real-world data, often with a focus on specific scenarios or use cases. It is becoming increasingly important for a wide range of applications. From training self-driving car algorithms to testing safety features in new vehicle models, it is a powerful tool for the automotive industry and is helping to accelerate development.
Applications of synthetic data
Synthetic data has proven to be an invaluable tool in the development of self-driving cars, which rely on sensors and machine learning algorithms to operate safely and accurately.
