With the motto “AUTOSAR enables development of smart, safe and secure vehicles”, over 250 participants are expected to join the 11th AUTOSAR Open Conference on Nov. 6th and 7th, 2018 in Shanghai, China.

New applications such as advanced driving assistance, autonomous driving and V2X as well as new connectivity requirements and possibilities from the “Internet of Things” demand changes to the system architecture of automotive electronics. Likewise, safety and security must be considered with high priority to ensure robust autonomous driving vehicles, electric mobility and offboard connectivity.

AUTOSAR focuses on standardization with the goal of reliability, scalability and maintainability by developing common specifications, architecture and methodology for dependable automotive systems. It pursues the objective of creating and establishing an open and standardized system architecture for automotive electronic control units (ECUs). Founded in 2003, the AUTOSAR development partnership is a strong community with more than 200 leading companies from automotive, electronics, semiconductor and software industries.

AUTOSAR partners recognize the value of collaboration to develop long-term scalable system solutions for the global automotive industry.
