Dynamically tune components in real-time

Ensure motors, sensors, and actuators operate at peak performance under diverse driving conditions by automatically tuning their Electronic Control Units (ECUs) in real-time.

Software Defined Component overview

The full promise of Software-Defined Vehicles is realized when all electronic components in vehicles can be continuously updated and improved throughout their lifetimes. The Sonatus Software-Defined Component Solution, consisting of the Sonatus Collector and Automator products, lets OEMs and their suppliers establish a closed-loop process to apply real-world, data-driven analysis and automated updates to tune vehicle ECUs, ensuring maximum component performance under any driving and vehicle conditions.

Collect Real World
Driving Data

Sonatus Collector allows OEMs to precisely gather real world data to analyze component performance under diverse conditions.

  • Define targeted policies to collect data in varying real-world scenarios 
  • Instantly deploy policies to a single vehicle or millions
  • Gain access to all vehicle signals – CAN, Ethernet, ECU, Logs, media, and more
Improve Efficiency
of Cloud-Based Analysis

Data collected in different driving situations streamlines OEM and partner cloud analysis.

  • Feed precise and relevant data into OEM or supplier models
  • Leverage leading-edge cloud data analysis including AI/ML
  • Continuously improve models with ongoing data gathering
Automate Real-Time
ECU Tuning

Sonatus Automator’s automation routines dynamically apply optimal tuning changes based on vehicle status and varying driving conditions.  

  • Compact policies deliver optimized parameters efficiently in kilobytes
  • Optimized parameter sets are dynamically applied in various driving conditions
  • Tuning is deployed in real-time, without the need for OTA updates
