Elektrobit (EB), a supplier of embedded and connected software products for the automotive industry, announced it provided the software design, development and integration services for Weltmeister (WM) Motor’s electric vehicle, the WM EX5, a compact sports utility vehicle.

EB was brought in specifically for the design and development of basic software for electronic control units (ECUs) associated with the new vehicle’s communication systems supporting diagnostics and AUTOSAR network management. EB also supplied vehicle software products to support over-the-air (OTA) updates, which were designed at the very beginning of the development of the EX5.

With its software powering over 1 billion devices in more than 100 million vehicles globally, EB offered WM Motor with expertise, significant resources—including a local team out of EB’s China office—and a commitment to excellence. The company used its lean and agile development approach to facilitate collaboration and stay on top of the schedule. EB also worked with various Tier 1 suppliers involved in the project, creating documentation, user manuals and training materials to ensure all teams were aligned.

WM Motor is using EB tresos, which enables implementation of AUTOSAR- and OSEK/VDX-compliant basic software for automotive ECUs. It also enables customization of basic software to meet WM Motor’s specific requirements.
