Raptor Tip of the Month- Detecting Misfire using the Raptor ECM196 Engine Controller

To design and calibrate OBD monitors, especially misfire, expensive and complicated development ECU hardware is typically used to collect data quickly enough to analyze each individual firing event, like the picture below.

This expensive development hardware is no longer a requirement thanks to Raptor and the ECM196, according to New Eagle Engineer, George Kelly. In Raptor, he set up a trigger to capture and store faster data in the ECU that would not be available over the slower CAN XCP link. Basically, all one has to do is trigger it once and it fills arrays in the ECU memory at a high speed, then you can read out those arrays more slowly over CAN XCP later.

Two pictures below are parts of the misfire detection using Raptor ECM196.  Raptor is an Embedded Model-Based Development (eMBD) development tool for rapid development of production control systems.  The ECM196 is an open automotive controller programmed with Raptor and exclusively available from New Eagle and its network partners.

Autonomous Vehicle Technology World Expo – Recap

After our trip to Stuttgart, Germany for the Autonomous Vehicle Technology World Expo, it’s great to be back in our Ann Arbor nest!

New Eagle’s booth in Stuttgart, Germany at the Autonomous Vehicle Technology World Expo.

In Stuttgart, we connected with many industry innovators and autonomous vehicle designers to discuss the future of control system creation and integration in autonomous vehicles. We were joined in our booth by our friends from Ann Arbor SPARK and our German partner, 3E-motion.

We shared about how Raptor, our efficient control system development platform, can be used to create reliable control systems for autonomous machines.

We also introduced our newest autonomous control solution—the Drive-By-Wire Kit. This kit is a Raptor-based solution that contains all the production hardware components and software tools needed to transform vehicles from OEMs to drive-by-wire machines.

While the Drive-By-Wire kit has been demonstrated on a Chrysler Pacifica, it can also be tailored for other vehicles. New Eagle’s ASIL-certified engineering expertise can help create and integrate custom control systems to carry emerging autonomous machines from prototype through production.

If you missed us in Germany, read more about it on Autonomous Vehicle Technology’s website, and save the date for our upcoming appearance at the Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Technology Expo in Novi, Michigan! We’ll be exhibiting in booth 316 on September 11-13, 2018.
