Keynote address

"AUTOSAR at the cutting edge of automotive technology"

Rafael Zalman1 and Bert Böddeker 2
1 Infineon Technologies AG, Automotive Electronics, Munich, Germany.
2 DENSO AUTOMOTIVE Deutschland GmbH, Eching, Germany.
Abstract: AUTOSAR is not only the platform of the automotive industry for standardization of a common software platform but is also a forum for early discussions and promotion of new technology and research. Due to the claim to be universal, AUTOSAR has to adopt cutting edge technologies to fulfill today’s challenges. One of the main innovation driving forces comes from the new standard for automotive functional safety, ISO 26262. The history of AUTOSAR and the functional safety evolution for road vehicles will be presented together with a short overview of typical and potential future implementations, some of which being still matter of research. The always present challenge to cope with a growing number of functions and complexity is complemented recently by the need for energy efficiency to fulfill new EU regulations and to be applied in electric vehicles. These needs find their way into new emerging multi-core processing architectures which are again influencing AUTOSAR and the future automotive systems through specific requirements on the software system architecture.

Dr. Bert Böddeker is working for DENSO Automotive Dtl. GmbH since 2005. He has received his PhD for computational physics at the University of Göttingen in 1999. He has worked for Berner & Mattner Systemtechnik GmbH in the automotive business unit as project manager for Bluetooth. At DENSO in Europe, he is responsible for automotive software architecture advanced research and functional safety. In this context, he represents DENSO in standardization and research bodies like AUTOSAR, FAT, and several public research projects.

Dr. Rafael Zalman has been working for Infineon Technologies AG (former Siemens Semiconductor Division) since 2001. He received his diploma in electrical / electronic engineering from the Polythenical Institute Bucharest in 1993 and a PhD in Aerospace Engineering from the same institute in 2005. Prior to 2001, he worked in the energy production and transportation domain as a research engineer and later as technical director in the Energy Research Institute in Bucharest. After joining Infineon he was working in the R&D department for automotive area especially in the area of Infotainment and automotive software development. Since 2007 he is leading the software development group in Munich and is responsible for the microcontroller software development methodology. He is also active in the domain of functional safety and is representing Infineon in strategic initiatives and organizations like AUTOSAR and VDA. He is also author of patents and papers in the fields of functional safety and automotive software.
