New CANoe4SW version supports Python

New Products |
Software tool vendor Vector has integrated basic functions into its newly released version 15 of CANoe4SW: For Software-in-the-Loop testing in virtual environments, the tool now supports Python as a programming language. Users in the automotive, aerospace, railroad, automation and medical technology industries will benefit from this, the company claims.

CANoe4SW is used for developing, testing and analyzing software in cyber-physical systems. Throughout the development process of distributed systems and IoT devices, CANoe4SW supports software developers and testers in many industries. Users benefit from achieving high software quality at an early stage of development in virtual execution environments on the computer, in virtual machines or in the cloud.

The new version 15 of CANoe4SW supports Python in addition to the previous programming languages C and C++. Now, users in the IoT market in particular – where Python is widely used – can also benefit from the advantages of SIL testing with CANoe4SW.

With CANoe4SW, independence from available hardware enables testing early in the development cycle with convenient debugging options in the development environment instead of on the target. Other participants in the system, such as the back end, can be realized as models. This enables the simulation of failure scenarios such as the down time of cloud services, for example. The realization of simulation models like the back end and other software components is also possible based on Python.
