During the past years we have seen quite a disruption in the automotive industry. The main drivers behind this change were (and still are) electrification, autonomous driving and increased vehicle connectivity. But how is the automotive industry - the manufacturers, suppliers and partners ensuring functionality, safety, security and overall sanity of the software in these vehicles? The answer is - Adaptive AUTOSAR!

This talk aims to demystify AUTOSAR and specifically Adaptive AUTOSAR. Why is it developed? By whom? For what use? The explanation of the new emerging standards will be given together with a walkthrough of the core technologies used. Furthermore, we will take a deep-dive into the Adaptive AUTOSAR architecture, its building blocks and the artifacts created by the community. Finally, we will put all these puzzle pieces together and reflect on the big picture of tomorrow’s mobility.
