Overview

In automotive and other transportation-related industries, several standards have been developed to ensure effective communication protocols, database formats, file formats, and so on. National Instruments offers tools specifically designed to comply with these standards and significantly reduce development time. This overview paper will review some of the most common transportation-related standards and how NI software tools address them.

1. National Instruments Tools for Automotive Standards Support

The table below describes the following National Instruments products and their support for automotive standards.  

  • NI-XNET driver software and hardware interfaces: High-performance CAN, LIN, and FlexRay interfaces combined with powerful driver software that is compatible with several standards.
  • NI-CAN driver software and hardware interfaces: Legacy CAN and LIN interfaces that use the previous-generation NI-CAN driver.
  • Automotive Diagnostic Command Set: Software package designed to simplify the communication with diagnostic protocols.
  • NI ECU Measurement and Calibration Toolkit: Software package designed to simplify the communication with calibration protocols.
  • NI LabVIEW: System design software that provides engineers and scientists with the tools they need to create and deploy measurement and control systems through unprecedented hardware integration.
  • NI LabWindows™/CVI: A proven ANSI C development environment for test and measurement that increases the productivity of engineers and scientists.
  • NI VeriStand: A powerful out-of-the-box software tool for performing real-time testing applications more efficiently.
  • NI DIAdem: A single software tool for quickly locating, loading, visualizing, analyzing, and reporting measurement data collected during data acquisition and/or generated during simulations.
