Nowadays cars are becoming more modern. High-resolution displays have overtaken analog fittings and software has become the fuel of engine control systems. It’s no wonder why new cars are displayed at computer fairs instead of car shows.
However, there is another reason why a car’s software is interesting. Car owners have the possibility to configure or code it themselves! Let’s dive into what is car coding and how it works.
A car is a complex machine with many functions that are controlled by a computer. Today, cars are equipped with assistance systems, hands-free options, and other smart services. However, not all of these embedded functions are enabled (or activated) by the manufacturer.
A car’s on-board computer takes over many functions that we aren’t aware of. Car drivers would be overwhelmed if they had to operate these functions manually. This is because the on-board computer also performs these functions simultaneously. Moreover, the functions can be classified according to various criteria.
Some basic coding functions:
Deactivating the Start/Stop function.
Beeping when unlocking and locking.
Locking the doors once a certain speed is reached (e.g. from 15 km/h).
Seatbelt warning sounds.
Mirrors automatically folding and unfolding.
Closing the windows after locking the car door with the key.
Flashing the brake lights during emergency braking.
Activating/deactivating daytime running lights.
Changing the brightness of daytime running lights.
Flashing of the headlights when locking or unlocking the doors via the remote control.
Flashing of the headlights when the alarm system is triggered.
