A modern car contains more than 200 millions lines of code, many of them running on powerful vehicle computers. With this shift to more computational power and faster innovation cycles, value creation for a vehicle - that is a mobility service provider - shifts to software. Today these systems are still developed in silos by each car manufacturer or OEM in-house. However, maintaining 100s of millions of lines of code in separate silos for separate product lines is neither time- nor cost effective. The open Eclipse KUKSA project aims to provide shared building blocks for connected car ecosystems usbale across the industry, providing performance, quality and scalability.

KUKSA CANOPi Prototyping platform for Software Defined Vehicle applications

on March 24, 2022

If you have followed KUKSA over the last years you know the KUKSA OBD Prototyping Platform, a Raspberry CM3-based OBD dongle. Now we are proud to present the second iteration of the KUKSA hardware. As we are not limited to OBD anymore, a small rename was in order, so let’s welcome the KUKSA CANOPi Platform a Rapid Prototyping Hardware for Software Defined Vehicle Applications. So what is new? Two independent MCP251xFD based CAN-FD interfaces.

Kuksa.val for SCR Anti-Tampering in trucks [Talk]

on June 24, 2021

The DIAS project used Eclipse KUKSA to detect tampering in the exhaust cleaning system of a modern truck. Modern internal combustion engines have several advanced exhaust treatment systems to meet emission standards and legislation. In case of Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) for diesel engines, a catalyst (“AdBlue®”) is used as consumable. This incurs costs for the operator of diesel vehicles and provides an incentive to unlawfully circumvent those systems. The talk presents how the Eclipse KUKSA stack has been used to realize an anti-tampering system for commercial heavy-duty trucks exhaust systems.

Eclipse Kuksa.val DBC Feeder Demo [Video]

on August 18, 2020

Eclipse Kuksa.val DBC Feeder Demo [Video] This demo showcases the features of the kuksa.val (https://github.com/eclipse/kuksa.val) server. While the automotive world is full of standards, there are not a lot of useful standards for an I(o)T world. Useful here means Standardize on semantics, not technology only Usable across vendors, by anyone (car manufacturers, suppiers, aftermarket, third parties) Building on, or interacting with, common IT technologies One of the more useful approaches in this context is the Genivi Vehicle signal specification (VSS) (https://github.
