About the project

The objective of RESCAR 2.0 is the development of a standard procedure which — for the first time — provides a convenient means to comprehend OEMs’ robustness requirements, both prior to and throughout ECU component design, in a reliable and verifiable way. In order to account for the increasing sensitivity of new technologies to their operational environment, three especially robustness-critical issues are dealt with in depth: ageing effects and the influence of both temperature and voltage fluctuations.

In RESCAR 2.0, robustness is precisely specified as a design command variable for the first time ever. It is taken into account throughout the entire development process, from project commencement to final verification. The procedure comprehends the whole value chain from the auto manufacturer (OEM) and the ECU producer (Tier 1), up to the semiconductor components provider (Tier 2).
