Writing applications which run on automotive head unit is not as straightforward as writing applications for a smartphone. In addition, testing such applications after they are coded is an another uphill task. The different challenges which vehicle manufacturers and OEMs have to deal here are multiple. First, the developer should be an automotive expert who understands the complexity vehicle functions. Second, the developer must have access to a physical vehicle or hardware to deploy, run and test the applications. With cars now becoming smartphone on wheels, the current scenario leaves out a large chunk of developer community who can contribute in developing innovative solutions – but cannot do so just because they are not automotive experts or do not have access to vehicle.

Auto Emulator solves this problem by abstracting the complexity of vehicle architecture. It’s a tool using which any developer is able to write and test CAN data driven applications. Auto Emulator consists of an emulator in which the applications can be dragged-drop to run, log files can be imported to visualize real CAN data and more.
