AUTOSAR Release Event

In this event we will present the newest Release of the AUTOSAR Standard to the AUTOSAR (AUTomotive Open System ARchitecture) development partnership and interested public. You will get a high-level overview of the AUTOSAR platforms and organizational aspects as well as an outlook for the coming year. Furthermore, detailed features and highlights will be presented for selected concepts.

With the latest Release we want to support the developers with a parallel, well synchronized release of new features and improvements both for the Classic as well as the Adaptive Platform. This release supports the users of the AUTOSAR standard in various areas such as service-oriented architectures, Diagnostics over IP (DoIP), security, over-the-air updates as well as in the AUTOSAR methodology. Additionally, the release fixes some compatibility issues between the two platforms.

AUTOSAR Release R20-11

The AUTOSAR Release R20-11 includes several new concepts such as:

  • Identity and Access Management with Specific Functional Clusters (Adaptive Platform) Cryptographic API (Adaptive Platform) which will allow the user to handle encrypted and/or signed data in order to authenticate ECUs, communication partners, or services.
  • System Health Management will allow the user to operate, within the adaptive platform, multiple PHM instances in a daisy chain, coordinate error handling across multiple controllers and virtual machines, and monitor multiple instances of AP.
  • Safety requirements for the AUTOSAR Platforms closes the gap between the AUTOSAR main requirements and the software specification level in order to achieve traceability between these levels.
  • Automated Driving Sensor Interfaces define all aspects of the interfaces to make them fully compliant to the AUTOSAR Adaptive Platform and achieve compatibility between sensors from different suppliers and the connected data fusion algorithm layer.
  • Classic Platform flexibility splits today’s monolithic AUTOSAR Classic Platform binary into several software clusters which can be independently developed, integrated, tested, released and programmed on the target ECU.
  • Vehicle Motion Control Interface (Classic Platform) standardizes the logical architecture and interface between ADAS and actuators to support efficient development and deployment.
  • Intrusion Detection System Manager adds an additional important security control to AUTOSAR based systems. It allows basic software components, functional clusters and applications to report onboard security events.
  • Deterministic Synchronization addresses these synchronization issues to complement the safety and security feature set of AUTOSAR up to software lockstep solutions.   
  • Static Configuration of Remote ECU Identity and Access Management (SCREIAM) prevents an attacker that has gained control of an ECU from going beyond the ECU’s intended functionality.
  • ara Communications Group provides a method to speed up the mode switching process. Making the interdependent applications interconnected in a standardized way in order to exchange status information and to perform the mode switching without communication clashes.
  • Rework of PNC related ComM and NM handling enables a synchronized shutdown of Partial Network Clusters (PNCs) and using PNC network management within advanced network topologies, including synchronized shutdown and forwarding of PNC requests.
