”Julinar” has been adopted for the EPS of Nissan’s new ‘Rogue’.

The AUTOSAR conformant software platform “Julinar®”  *1, which is being developed and sold by APTJ Corporation, has been adopted for EPS *2 developed by JTEKT Corporation.
This EPS will be installed in the new Nissan “Rogue” *3 for North America, which will go on sale in October 2020.

Among the basic functions of a vehicle such as driving, turning, and stopping, EPS is an important system for “turning”.
For this reason, EPS needs to be highly safe and reliable.
In the development of the software for the EPS, both companies worked closely together, taking advantage of JTEKT’s expertise in functional safety and APTJ’s expertise in software platforms.

As a result, JTEKT and APTJ were able to commercialize the software by efficiently solving implementation issues such as meeting high safety requirements, smooth integration with other modules, and reduction of overhead time.

APTJ will continue to provide a software platform that achieves high safety and reliability to domestic and overseas automotive manufacturers and automotive parts manufacturers.
