The market trends in the automotive industry point towards connected, increasingly autonomous, highly customized, electric and networked vehicles. A collection of completely new software functions increases the volume of onboard software by orders of magnitude. In the context of dynamic updates and extensions, manufacturers need to move from static ECU images toward a dynamic architecture more resembling general-purpose IT systems. In addition, time-to-market pressure keeps building, and product complexity frequently leads to defects that aren’t detected until late in the process when they are more expensive to fix.
Are you struggling with increasing onboard software volume and quality, a large number of variants and time-to-market pressure?
