This first aspect of this is the extension of AUTOSAR partnership types to include Associate Partner Light, which will be available for free and grant exploitation rights for a very limited scope of AUTOSAR standards. The goal is to provide easier access to AUTOSAR compatible components or products.

Second, is the Automotive API Project, which is in the intermediate mode of bridging the AUTOSAR Open Framework. Included here is the AUTOSAR Working Group Cloud (WG-CLD) and the AUTOSAR – COVESA Collaboration.

Furthermore, AUTOSAR believes it is time to stabilize the Adaptive Platform APIs to meet market demand. Already, the Release R24-11 is planned to be a stabilization release for Adaptive Platform.

In summary, the Opening Strategy is well on its way to being finalized. With this strategy, AUTOSAR is well prepared for upcoming trends for SDVs. Currently, a collaboration with COVESA, Eclipse SDV and SOAFEE, known as the SDV Alliance, has been initiated.

AUTOSAR wants to thank the AUTOSAR community for the discussions, the quality, and the focus contributed to this Release R23-11.
