AUTOSAR : how this standard shaped the world of automotive electronics

Back in 2003 : automotive OEMs and suppliers founded the AUTOSAR consortium (AUTomotive Open System ARchitecture) in 2003. Its standardization would make it possible to integrate algorithms, in unmodified form, into the ECUs of different manufacturers, and this would support the distribution of functions to multiple ECUs much better.

Ten years later, AUTOSAR is still a hot topic, and with good reason. Over 100 companies have developed specifications in a number of working groups. Meanwhile, the fourth main version has been published. Vehicles with AUTOSAR are in production, many automotive OEMs are currently developing vehicles with AUTOSAR, and nearly all of the others are showing excited interest and will hop aboard the train sooner or later.

However, the full benefits of AUTOSAR can only be achieved when all of its elements are implemented systematically. And not only basic software.

AUTOSAR makes it possible to derive and share precise machine-readable specification requirements that come from a design of the total “vehicle electronics” system. Different suppliers can implement these requirements with assured processes and high efficiency.

The introduction of this new methodology requires a re-alignment of the methodologies of all participants in the supplier chain.
