The Future of Automotive Software Infrastructure – Building adaptive dependable systems

The automotive industry is undergoing significant change in the way software is structured, developed and maintained throughout its lifecycle. The industry trends of autonomous driving, of open connectivity and of electrification of vehicles call for platforms that provide enhanced compute power at lower hardware complexity, while ensuring safe and secure operation and providing capabilities to easily and remotely change software after deployment of the vehicle. This talk gives an overview of software architectures for next-generation vehicles that enable adaptive and dependable software systems.

Dr. Moritz Neukirchner is a senior expert and lead architect for the AutoCore (Classic AUTOSAR) and AdaptiveCore (Adaptive AUTOSAR) development at Elektrobit Automotive GmbH. His responsibilities include the definition of overall architectural concepts for in-vehicle software infrastructure. He received his Diploma and Ph.D. (both with distinction) in electrical engineering from the Technische Universität Braunschweig working in timing analysis and runtime support for safety-critical real-time systems.

Keynote by Prof. Dr. Sergio Montenegro - Aerospace Information Technology, Universität Würzburg

How to program space vehicles? Make it simple!

Prof. Montenegro has coordinated over 100 research projects in Fraunhofer Institute FIRST, he has headed the Department for Avionics Systems of the DLR Institute for Space Systems in Bremen and now holds the chair of Aerospace Information Technology at University of Würzburg. His research interests include dependable real-time distributed control systems, specially for aerospace applications. His group has developed and maintains the real time operating system RODOS, including its Middleware, which provides transparent communication between software and hardware modules (It is implemented in hardware too), between modules running in the same computer, or on different computers in the same satellite/UAV, or between modules (applications) running on different satellites/UAVs and even between satellites/UAVs applications and ground segment applications. RODOS is already running on several satellites and UAVs now in orbit and some others which will fly soon. Now Prof. Montenegro and his group is moving the same concepts to drones (UAVs) and networks of UAVs and even to under water autonomous vehicles and for Beehives monitorig.
