NEW YORK, September 1, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Read the full report: defined vehicle (SDV) software and defined vehicle architecture have recently been the subject of intense debate among insiders. But the technical standard – AUTOSAR – is essential for them. AUTomotive Open System ARchitecture (AUTOSAR) is a global development partnership between automotive manufacturers, suppliers, service providers and companies in the automotive electronics, semiconductor and software industry. Since 2003, they have been working on the development and deployment of several open and standardized software platforms for the automotive industry. AUTOSAR`s “key partners” are BMW Group, Bosch, Continental, Daimler, Ford, General Motors, PSA Group, Toyota and the Volkswagen Group. Since May 2020 AUTOSAR has hosted 284 members, including several Chinese companies such as Great Wall Motor, FAW, Dongfeng Motor, HiRain Technologies, iSoft Infrastructure Software, SAIC and Neusoft Reach. It seems that there are not many Chinese companies on the LIST of AUTOSAR members. Nevertheless, the Automotive Software Ecosystem Member Organization of China (AUTOSEMO), established in July 2020, includes 9 automakers (FAW, SAIC, GAC, NIO, Geely, Great Wall Motor, Dongfeng Motor, FAW Jiefang and Xiaopeng Motors) and 6 suppliers (Neusoft Reach, HiRain Technologies, Shanghai Nasn Automotive Electronics, Shenzhen VMAX Power, Shanghai Re-Fire Technology and Horizon Robotics). Based on AUTOSAR, AUTOSEMO strives to develop basic software architecture standards and an industrial ecosystem run by Chinese companies. AUTOSEMO will not temporarily include API standards already under development of the AUTOSAR application programming interface (body, transmission, power, chassis, passive security, HMI, multimedia and telematics) in the commercial field of standard working groups.

AUTOSEMO`s system software and control standards are autoSAR compliant. It turns out that AUTOSEMO is fundamentally compatible with AUTOSAR. The AUTOSAR standard aims to ensure the standardization, reuse and interoperability of software. Two complementary platforms have been set up, AUTOSAR Classic and AUTOSAR Adaptive (AP). The AUTOSAR adaptive platform has been set up to meet the development needs of next-generation, intelligently connected and electrified autonomous vehicles, with high-flexibility, high-performance, HPC support, dynamic communication and management update functions. The latest version was released R19-11 in November 2019. R19-11 is a multilayered architecture. It implements the AUTOSAR Runtime for Adaptive Applications (ARA), which consists of a foundation and a service consisting of several modules with separate functions.

The service consists of three functional modules: State Management (SM), Network Management (NM) and Update – Configuration Management (UCM); The Foundation includes: Communication Management (COM), Cryptography (Crypto), Log – Trace (Log), Diagnostics (Diag), Persistency (Per), Execution Management (Exec), Time Synchronization (Tsync), etc.
