The megatrends cyber security, connected car, IoT and autonomous driving are bringing about far-reaching changes in the automotive industry. Version 1.0 of the AUTOSAR Adaptive Platform marks the introduction of a new standard for service-oriented communication in automotive E/E architectures.
For developers of multi-sensor applications, vADASdeveloper is a fast and easy means of visualizing sensor data. CANoe and CANalyzer, now available in version 10.0, have been extended in areas such as automotive Ethernet and Car2x. The tool for automotive E/E design PREEvision now also makes it possible to develop Ethernet networks easily from scratch. Adaptive MICROSAR, a basic software package for the AUTOSAR Adaptive Platform, is an extension of Vector’s proven MICROSAR solution. In the area of cyber security Vector provides embedded software, services and tools for protecting embedded systems against cyber attacks.
Vector Software Inc., Rhode Island, USA, and Timing-Architects, Regensburg, Germany, have become part of the Vector Group. Vector Software’s main product, VectorCast, is for automated testing of embedded software. Timing-Architects specializes in the evaluation and optimization of embedded multi-core and many-core real-time systems. In Regensburg the occupants of the first Vector building are moving in, and on the Vector Campus in Stuttgart a new extension will be built. The year ended very successfully for Vector with the hiring of its 2,000th employee and the record sales revenue of more than 520 million €.
