Automotive Embedded Software is enabling remarkable new business opportunities in the automotive industry and fueling innovation in connectivity, user experience, and autonomous vehicle development. However, managing automotive software development complexity requires a strong software architecture, software development expertise and a well-managed talent pool. Hardware and software integration, and co-development, is a major challenge and a key contributor to quality issues, launch delays, and recall related penalties. It requires an overall understanding of the interplay of the sub-systems to enable component based development with portability, reconfigurability and extensibility, together with guaranteed reliability and performance levels. Automotive OEMs and Tier-1 suppliers need the help of partners with extensive experience in automotive integration processes with large, global teams.
