AUTOSAR – A Worldwide Standard is on the Road .


Summary The AUTomotive Open System ARchitecture (AUTOSAR) was founded as a development partnership in 2003 and produced the first set of major specifications by the end of its Phase I in 2006. In Phase II (2007-2009) Releases 3.0 and 3.1 were made available, while AUTOSAR Release 4.0 will follow by the end of 2009. With Release 2.1 and Release 3.0/3.1 the majority of partners and members started their series roll-out of AUTOSAR. When introducing the AUTOSAR standard in series products dedicated migration scenarios need to be applied. The use-cases for these different migration scenarios will be presented and there will be shown ways of how to further migrate to a fully AUTOSAR compliant solution. Release 4.0 will be the next big step of AUTOSAR in providing the features that were demanded by the different applications of the domains AUTOSAR is covering. In the following, a top-level overview is provided. Since the current AUTOSAR development contract ends by the end of 2009, the AUTOSAR Core Partners have set up a new contract for AUTOSAR Phase III lasting from the beginning of 2010 to the end of 2012. The focus of Phase III will be on maintenance, increasing maturity, supporting new hardware mechanisms and further enhancing the existing AUTOSAR system. Details on AUTOSAR Phase III will be given with respect to
