Delphi Developing AUTOSAR-Based Platform for Future Body Computer Modules
TROY, MI-- Delphi Corp. (PINKSHEETS: DPHIQ) announced today it is developing a new generation of vehicle body control electronics based on the requirements of AUTOSAR (AUTomotive System Open ARchitecture). The effort is in preparation for customers that are likely to require compliance with these requirements in body and security products in the near future.
AUTOSAR initiatives are aimed at establishing open standards in vehicle E/E architecture that provide a common infrastructure.
Using Delphi-developed AUTOSAR-compliant software, Delphi engineers are developing modular body computer systems that can be used across generations of vehicles. The software provides flexibility for product modification and scalability of solutions for product lines. Delphi plans to reuse proven pieces of software within and across vehicle lines to enhance overall quality of the E/E architecture.
“Delphi is committed to meeting evolving customer requirements with speed and flexibility,” said Jugal Vijayvargiya, Delphi product business unit executive. “We believe the development of AUTOSAR-based body control technologies is evidence of our ability to apply innovative technology to address customers’ business needs.”
With experts in vehicle software development, systems integration and manufacturing electronic vehicle systems, Delphi has developed basic software modules for the AUTOSAR core including Runtime Environment (RTE), communication management (CAN and LIN), COM services, error handling, device drivers, memory management, mode management and operating system hardware. Delphi is also developing basic software modules for FlexRay.
Delphi has also designed a strategy for automated, tool-assisted configuration and integration of AUTOSAR-compatible control units.
“Our modular strategy is based on the widely used Eclipse open source framework,” Vijayvargiya said. “One of the key features is that it works with a unified base of data. The various configuration tools are integrated as plug-ins and users are free to choose which tools to use. Our extensive experience in integrating systems into vehicles allows us to easily integrate third-party auto core modules.”
AUTOSAR is designed to address the increasing electronic content and complexity of electronics in vehicles that are driving the need for more standardization. The initiative is made up of automotive manufacturers and software and tool vendors whose objective is to create and promote the standardization of software in vehicles.
