Enhancing Capital Embedded AR Classic for software-defined vehicles

By Sarah Bartash

Using Siemens Capital Embedded AR Classic, explore the latest advancements in the AUTOSAR standard, primarily focusing on its milestone R20-11 release. Learn the benefits of adopting these standards for automotive software development.

Automotive electrical and electronics (E/E) architectures continue to increase in complexity due to electrification, government regulations, data constraints and hardware limitations. Since E/E architectures are becoming more complex, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) are looking for software solutions to ease the design burdens.

Automotive interested parties created AUTomotive Open System ARchitecture (AUTOSAR) in 2003 with an objective to create and establish an open and standardized software architecture for automotive electronic control units (ECUs). Capital ™ Embedded AR Classic is the Siemens implementation of the AUTOSAR Classic standard basic software. It is part of the Siemens Xcelerator business platform of software, hardware and services.

AUTOSAR releases an annual standard update to support next generation of electrical/electronic (E/E) architectures. AUTOSAR release R20-11 brings huge functionality addition to the platform through addition of significant new features. In this webinar, learn about the challenge of E/E architectures, the AUTOSAR R20-11 release and how the Capital Embedded platform incorporates this release along with selected enhancements from later releases to meet OEM requirements.
