AUTOSAR and its impact on automotive software development

AUTOSAR and its impact on automotive software development

Publication Date: 05/04/2022

The recent rapid increase of software-based functionality has introduced various challenges in the automotive industry with respect to processes, tools, product development models, and maintenance. Software and IoT can transform vehicle capabilities, while simultaneously creating development challenges for automotive companies. An end-to-end approach integrating independent software elements into a common platform can improve functionality and decrease complexity between stakeholders. OEMs, suppliers, and tool developers might compete for market share, but they will cooperate on standards, especially when companies have a common interest.

Automotive Open System Architecture (AUTOSAR) is an open system and standardized automotive software architecture developed by a consortium of automotive OEMs and suppliers to improve ECU software quality, reduce development costs, enable reusability of components, and maintain a common standard among the stakeholders.

AUTOSAR introduces a layered architecture to create and establish open standards for the automotive electrical and electronics architecture, which is jointly developed by automobile manufacturers, suppliers, and tool developers.
