Vector Informatik GmbH and SYSGO AG join forces for AUTOSAR Adaptive

Stuttgart / Klein-Winternheim, (PresseBox) - The IT companies Vector and SYSGO have founded a joint venture for the development of embedded software. The aim of the cooperation is to create an integrated software platform consisting of the AUTOSAR adaptive basic software MICROSAR and the real-time operating system PikeOS.

SYSGO, Europe's leading provider of operating systems in critical environments, is contributing its comprehensive aviation safety and security expertise to the 50/50 joint venture. Vector, the Stuttgart-based specialist for embedded systems, has been developing secure AUTOSAR basic software according to ISO 26262 for many years. The combined expertise of both companies will provide ECU developers with an ideal solution for the new generation of high-performance ECUs based on the AUTOSAR Adaptive Standard. Control units for automated driving, multifunctional application servers and infotainment systems use the new AUTOSAR Adaptive Platform as a future-proof standard. The PikeOS hypervisor and the associated POSIX operating system form the basis of the common AUTOSAR Adaptive Software Architecture.

In future, the combination of Adaptive MICROSAR and PikeOS will be offered as part of the Vector AUTOSAR portfolio and by Vector worldwide. This provides AUTOSAR adaptive system developers with an optimally coordinated solution from a single source.

The joint development includes measures for the effective interaction between the PikeOS operating system and the Adaptive AUTOSAR basic software. For safety-relevant ECUs according to ISO 26262, this includes the isolation of individual applications in order to safely operate QM and ASIL software. In addition to ISO 26262 requirements up to ASIL D, the platform supports functions such as fast booting and modern security measures against unauthorized access. Both companies assume that in the future, several operating systems with their specific strengths will be used in parallel in ECUs. Therefore, the solution can be extended with additional system partitions for AUTOSAR Classic, Linux or other operating systems.

A release of the joint solution for prototype applications is planned by the end of 2017. Series releases for safety-relevant control units are planned for 2019.
