Vector in Germany is offering embedded software for ECUs that meets the highest safety requirements according to ISO 26262 for automated driving.

The MICROSAR Classic embedded software ensures reliable operation for autonomous driving and x-by-wire systems. This enables the development of safety-related systems that are not just able to detect faults but are also able to ensure a defined service to be executed reliably. Such software is the foundation for removing the driver as omnipresent fallback.

In contrast to existing solutions that can only detect faults, MICROSAR High Availability together with state-of-the-art software development processes and a unique safety architecture, are the basis for application software that is reliable in performing its defined tasks. Compared to the former solution, MICROSAR High Availability ensures a deterministic Worst Case Execution Time (WCET) which is essential for demanding autonomous driving applications.

“Our basic software meets the most demanding requirements of fully self-driving vehicles, x-by-wire applications, and other mission-critical applications outside the automotive industry. We offer our customers an already available solution for the reliable operation of increasingly complex systems, particularly in the Software-Defined Vehicle,” said Dr. Matthias Traub, Director Embedded Software and Systems at Vector.

MICROSAR High Availability is a key part of Vector’s software defined vehicle portfolio. Besides the safety-certified embedded software products, system designers can also get coaching and consulting expertise to make their safety architecture a reality. Combined with Vector’s leading basic software portfolio, MICROSAR High Availability provides a complete solution for all types of requirements – from sensor/actuator ECUs to runtime software for high-performance computers (HPCs) that form the brains of autonomous vehicles.
