Automotive Open System Architecture
AUTOSAR (AUTomotive Open System ARchitecture) is a standardization initiative of leading automotive manufacturers and suppliers that was founded in autumn of 2003. The goal is the development of a reference architecture for ECU software that can manage the growing complexity of ECUs in modern vehicles.
In 2017, the AUTOSAR development partnership added a new standard to its line-up that is based on POSIX operating systems: the AUTOSAR Adaptive Platform. The previous AUTOSAR standard will be continued under the name AUTOSAR Classic Platform. Vector provides a field-proven AUTOSAR solution which is tuned to your needs – offering a comprehensive tool range of design and development tools, ECU software and services around AUTOSAR.
