Software-defined vehicle trends

Automotive OEMs are increasing their vertical integration in software platforms and systems development to accelerate the availability of the technologies they need in software-defined vehicle development. This involves working with new partners deeper down the hardware and software technology stacks and bringing new skills, methods, and processes in-house while working with some traditional tier-one supplier partners. The results are wide-ranging; architecture and integration teams now collaborate horizontally with internal and external suppliers and may need disruptive new methods like software factories.

Read the white paper to learn about the software-defined vehicle trends affecting automotive manufacturers and Tier 1 suppliers and the impact of new collaborations between OEMs, technology vendors, and standards organizations.

Leverage new tools and services to meet evolving requirements for designing modern vehicles

The pace of innovation in software development is ever-increasing, requiring rapid, high-quality development and the ability to be responsive to market changes. Meanwhile, software platform complexity is also increasing, increasing the need for heterogeneous software platforms, software-intensive features, and the ability to update those features over the vehicle's life.

Automotive software development is transforming to accommodate these trends. Software factories are being created to support vertical integration and new horizontal collaborations. This new paradigm is enabled by standards such as AUTOSAR and others to support interoperability, new networking technologies, and enhanced relationships with service organizations and technology vendors.
