The AUTOSAR (AUTomotive Open System ARchitecture) standard is a worldwide development partnership for automotive engineering that aims to establish an open and standardized software architecture of Electronic Control Units (ECUs). It opens opportunities for innovative automotive electronic and software systems that improve performance, safety, and environmental compatibility.
The greatest benefits of using the AUTOSAR standard are standardization, re-usability of the software components and scalability.
Through these the stakeholders save important time and money. Furthermore, it brings higher performance.
The newness it brings is in its layered architecture. The impact of any change in the processes is minimal. Classically, any change in the process required changes in all interconnected areas. With the layered architecture of AUTOSAR any change impacts only the layer is directly connected with. Thus, other layers are intact.
Supposedly there is a need to add a new software component. Using the standard, the focus will only be on implementing the inside algorithm, without having to adapt to the OEM environment.
Moreover, the software is completely independent of the hardware. Consequently, the software components don’t need to be redeveloped in accordance the underlying hardware component. Hence, these can be used again.
