Dynamic AUTOSAR Adaptive Software Platform

The Solution for High-Performance ECUs according to AUTOSAR Adaptive

Adaptive MICROSAR is the Vector solution for vehicles with an E/E architecture based on the AUTOSAR Adaptive Platform. It provides the AUTOSAR Runtime for Adaptive Applications (ARA) and comprises an efficient development environment integrated in Eclipse. Adaptive MICROSAR targets high performance ECUs such as in-vehicle application servers, ADAS ECUs and infotainment systems. Vector provides you with a complete safety solution up to ASIL D, ranging from the hypervisor, the POSIX operating system to the ARA.
