Software Defined Vehicle Working Group gegründet

Together with leading companies in the industry, including Bosch and Microsoft, the Eclipse Foundation has set up the Software Defined Vehicle Working Group. The aim is a manufacturer-independent open source ecosystem of software development for the automobile.

The Eclipse Foundation, together with several leading companies in the industry, including Bosch and Microsoft, issued an open invitation to technology leaders to participate in the definition of a new working group that deals specifically with the “Software-Defined Vehicle”. The goal is to create a vendor independent open source ecosystem with a vibrant community of contributors focused on laying the foundation for a new era of automotive software development. The announcement serves as a call for all interested parties to join this initiative and help shape the future of mobility.

Developers of next-generation vehicles are now relying on software-based solutions for their new designs. The Eclipse Foundation believes this will lead to an open source revolution that will result in software defined vehicles. These will enable vehicle manufacturers and automotive suppliers to put software at the center of vehicle development, while the hardware is only considered later.

Mike Milinkovich, Executive Director of the Eclipse Foundation: “We are very excited to be developing this new project here at the Eclipse Foundation. While we are deeply rooted in the automotive industry, a project of this size and magnitude has never been tackled before. This initiative enables participants to be at the grassroots level and ensure that they have an equal voice on this project. ”

In order to achieve this significant change in the development process, the new working group wants to create the basis for an open ecosystem for the provision, configuration and monitoring of vehicle software in a secure manner.

The ultimate goal of the open source initiative for software-defined vehicles is to scale the in-vehicle software across vehicle models, product lines, brands, organizations and time periods.
