Software is becoming a critical differentiator in the automotive industry. It enables key features that set you apart from your competition. So picking the right architecture can have a lasting market impact.
The architecture sets engineering boundaries and provides rules and cornerstones to which applications and software modules must conform. The architecture has to enable modularity and it has to define interface standards and create a platform that can be used reliably by application developers.
EB has the know-how to help you choose and define the right Software Architecture and building blocks. EB can help you define infotainment and electronic control unit (ECU) Software Architectures that offer a separation of elements, easy maintenance, and the ability to reuse assets. Selecting the right kind of architecture is especially critical to ensure successful large-scale software projects and to enable software reuse—which reduces development time and costs.
Avoid supplier lock-in and gain control of your code.
Decrease costs and save time by reusing software code for future devices and car models, as well as by reusing the custom development environment (Software Factory) in future projects.
Reduce time to market
Reduce time to market and overall costs by making the right choice and using proven third-party software and open-source systems. Use modern software development methods to shorten development cycles and become more responsive to market changes.
- Identifying relevant trends and technologies to provide a basis for your software strategy
- Defining and implementing software strategies that enable hardware/software separation
- Creating Software Architecture and ownership criteria
- Ensuring reusability of selected assets
Integration with other EB Automotive products and services
Conventional software development methods don’t effectively support the complexity involved in automotive software development projects. So EB Automotive developed the Software Factory concept to overcome that complexity.
EB Automotive provides products and solutions to carmakers and Tier 1 suppliers for all phases of the development cycle. Software engineering is a particularly important and often underestimated aspect of development projects. Rely on EB for assistance.
