The primary goal of the AUTOSAR partnership is the standardization of a common methodology, basic system functions and functional interfaces. This enables development partners to integrate, exchange, re-use and transfer functions within a vehicle network and substantially improves their efficiency of development. Having this goal in mind, AUTOSAR pushes the paradigm shift from an ECU-based to a function-based system design attempt in automotive software development and enables the management of the ever-growing software and E/E complexity with respect to technology and economics.
