Autosar presented its Adaptive Platform on March 31, 2017 as a standardized integration platform for electronic control units (ECUs). This "Adaptive" platform is based on Posix operating systems and will be positioned as the ECU standard software environment for new automotive megatrends. It combines the security of microcontroller-based ECUs with the high performance of microprocessor-based control units, predominantly in the infotainment sector. Thus, the new standard avoids the costly alternative for OEMs and their suppliers to constantly redevelop the critical and complicated functionality of such a software platform with proprietary and individual approaches.
Autosar (AUTomotive Open System ARchitecture) is a worldwide development partnership founded in 2003 between automotive manufacturers, suppliers and other companies from the electronics, semiconductor and software industries. Autosar's Core Partners are BMW, Bosch, Continental, Daimler AG, Ford, General Motors, PSA, Toyota and the Volkswagen Group.
