SODA AI began to pioneer the integration of AI throughout the entire automotive development lifecycle. As a result, we created a comprehensive AI framework that encompassed every aspect of vehicle mastering, from concept to production. This framework enables seamless collaboration between human experts and AI agents, leveraging the strengths of both to achieve unprecedented levels of efficiency and innovation.

One key component of this framework is the AI Hub, which presents a set of smart apps for vehicle engineering functions. These apps are powered by SODA smart agents specializing in various aspects of automotive development, such as analyzing automotive standards, generating requirements documentation, and optimizing testing processes.

SODA AI agents act as employees, keeping track of updates to automotive standards and analyzing them in detail. They can assess multiple versions of ISO documents for clarity and evaluate each item based on guardrails and best practices, determining whether each item was a requirement or recommendation.

These agents work with requirements at different levels, from code to architecture, automatically generating significant portion of the feature library requirement documentation.

The AI agents also analyze unit tests, application tests, and validation scenarios, providing engineers with faster results that are adapted to the specific details of their testing environment. This streamlines the testing process and improves overall efficiency within SODA.Validate with test Co-Pilot.

SODA agents can also run in a real car. Imagine a climate control system that goes beyond manual adjustments, actively adapting to your unique needs. SODA car comfort AI agent integrates with your smart watch, analyzing biometric data like heart rate, skin temperature, and activity levels in real-time. Using this data, it dynamically adjusts cabin temperature, humidity, and airflow, ensuring you're always in your optimal comfort zone.

In addition to these capabilities, SODA is developing functional safety and cybersequrity tooling to assist human experts simplifying and optimizing the processes according to relevant industry standard frameworks.

By integrating AI throughout the automotive development lifecycle, SODA revolutionizes the way vehicles are created. The collaboration between human experts and AI systems leads to faster, more efficient, and more innovative vehicle development, setting a new standard for the industry.

Automotive AI today with SODA: Real-World Applications and Case Studies

SODA AI-driven approach has already demonstrated its effectiveness in several real-world applications. SODA implements AI in each of its customer-facing products SODA.Sim, SODA.Validate, SODA.Create as well as running internal AI workstreams with tactical goals on its AI technology map.

SODA AI landscape consists of the following fundamental pieces:

  • AI Hub with AI Apps - showcases lightweight apps for automotive experiences.

  • AI Co-Pilots - power SODA products like Validate, Sim and Create.

  • Autonomous Agents Platform - automate processes around well established domains.

SODA Automotive AI Hub

SODA Automotive AI Hub is available on our webiste as the central repository for a variety of AI applications for the automotive industry.

It offers tools that assist in vehicle design & development, including system engineering, software development, testing & validation, certification, compliance, product marketing and more.

The Hub aggregates apps from multiple AI platforms, providing a single source for both OpenAI-based solutions as well as bespoke AI apps developed by SODA.

An example is Requirements Assistant - an essential tool for managing the lifecycle of software requirements in the automotive sector. It assists in crafting clear requirements, tracking their progress, and ensuring they are met, thus contributing to the development of high-quality vehicle software.

There is a path we see from a lightwight AI Hub app prototype used to engage with SODA users, gather feedback and understand the problem better to a fully autonomous agent running with a minimal supervision from human employees.

As the use-case matures it turns into more integrated form, usually embedded into one of SODA products, to help working faster and better by augumenting human capabilities with AI.

SODA AI Co-Pilots

An example of SODA application that exists in the form of co-pilot is SODA.Validate. It is known from GitHub Co-Pilot case study, this form of automation helps to complete up to 40% of the human work volume (in case of GitHub Co-Pilot, portion of code generated). Today SODA.Validate Co-Pilot helps engineers to write tests more effectively faster.

Another use case was implemented by SODA after the request from UK top sports car manufacturer is an automated ISO specification analysis pipeline, that separates requirements from recommendations and prepares them for upload to requirement management system. As a result, a 200-page long ISO PDF documents turned into a versioned set of requirements with a clear indication of the minimal scope to comply with.

As a SODA co-pilot gathers more data and matures using human feedback loop, it turns into independent agent capable of working on its own, while still being constantly validated by humans using standard peer-review practices.

SODA Autonomous Agents

One of the autonomous agents working at SODA today is a Feature Library Specification Agent looking into Feature Library source code and as it changes, updating SODA Feature Library documentation. It later gets reviewed by human employees and got shipped 80% faster with 90% less human worktime spent.

Specification Agent and other SODA autonomous systems are built on multi-agent architecture supported by open source tools that enable much better output from generative AI by leveraging dialog between individual agents. An agent swarm members working in a collaboration are Requerements Assistant, Standards Expert, Automotive Engineer, Systems Architect, Security Analyst, Critic and others.

As result of collective work of these agents SODA gets improved specifications that surpass the quality of both non-augumented human and AI-only work resulting in a clean and well written specification drafts generated by a single prompt only, as simple as 'generate a specification for EV traction control'.

It is impressive how the system that gets a single prompt as input, generates high quality specifications in our test runs!

Current SODA AI agent pool incudes more than a dozen agents, and this number is growing day by day. Many lightweight versions of our agents get published to AI Hub for public access.

Measurable Impact on Automotive Development Processes

The impact of SODA's AI-driven approach on automotive development processes is quantifiable and substantial. In a study developed in collaboration with VS Optima, the implementation of SODA AI-powered tools resulted in a 2.5x times faster in delivering vehicle software features and a 49% decrease in the development cost.
