dSPACE has joined the Scalable Open Architecture for Embedded Edge (SOAFEE) project as a voting member. dSPACE will bring more than 30 years of experience in simulation and validation to the project, drive solutions for system development and system integration, and help shape the future of the software-defined vehicle.
The initiative addresses the challenges of increasingly complex vehicle software development. It aims for unified and scalable architecture for the cloud-based development and deployment of automobile software.
dSPACE has a deep understanding of the complexity of software development in the automobile industry and already offers relevant solutions for developing and testing ECU software.
Vehicles in the future will have a completely new ECU architecture; more and more vehicle functions will be implemented with the help of software. This will also change the way software is developed and tested. As an active participant in the SOAFEE initiative, dSPACE will contribute its comprehensive experience in the field of developing and testing ECU software and develop relevant solutions and tools for software-defined vehicles.
“We look forward to working with the partners in the SOAFEE community. Together, we will pave the way to cloud-based development and significantly contribute to bringing software-defined vehicles onto the roads faster,” said Andre Rolfsmeier, Director of Strategic Product Management for Automated Driving and Software Solutions at dSPACE.
