Adaptive AUTOSAR - The New AUTOSAR Architecture
AUTOSAR Expert, ETAS Ltd
The challenges facing the automotive industry: connectivity, autonomy, mobility as a service and new powertrains, are driving the rapid evolution of vehicle’s E/E architectures. To support such challenges the systems are adding to the existing functional distribution model a centralized vehicle computing layer for decision making, and ultimately, to integrated cloud-based systems. Classic AUTOSAR provides strong support for functionally distributed behaviour, however, the challenges facing automotive require an ECU architecture that is more powerful, more flexible and more open. Adaptive AUTOSAR is designed to address those needs providing a run-time updatable platform with dynamic communication, concurrency and security. In this presentation we introduce the platform, discuss some of its capabilities and look to the challenges that the platform itself has when expanding into support for non-automotive sectors and high-integrity systems.
