OpenECU™ products from Pi Innovo rapidly deliver cost-effective electronic control system solutions for single research prototypes or for volume production systems. OpenECU field-ready electronic hardware is supported by OpenECU tools that integrate with MATLAB® and Simulink® to generate royalty-free ECU software from control strategies generated within MATLAB. Using OpenECU significantly reduces the time and cost to create rugged prototypes or to move from prototype to volume production.
The Pi Innovo team offers science and engineering skills related to vehicle electronics, with experts in electrical engineering (hardware design), physics (vehicle dynamics, electromagnetic wave emissions, magnetic circuit modelling), chemistry (battery chemistry and exhaust gas emissions), and computer science (system architecture and software development).
Pi Innovo has over 25 years of experience working on all aspects of electronic control for vehicles, including full safety-critical applications. Building on their initial motorsport expertise, Pi Innovo has expanded to work in most vehicle market sectors including passenger car, commercial, hybrid, specialist, off-road, and military, as well as some marine and aerospace applications. More recently, they have expanded into advanced technology infotainment and instrumentation systems.
Pi Innovo offers a range of engagement models to match the skills and expertise of customers' in-house resources. They can work independently to deliver complete systems or provide specialist skills to complement existing project teams. Pi Innovo engineers can train customer engineers while working alongside them to ensure transfer of knowledge for the future.
Pi Innovo has expertise in development life cycles built around MATLAB and Simulink and offers system integration solutions that fit the needs of customers building new systems or enhancing existing systems. With offices in Cambridge, U.K., and Plymouth, Michigan, Pi Innovo works with a global client base.
