About this book


This book presents the state of the art, challenges and future trends in automotive software engineering. The amount of automotive software has grown from just a few lines of code in the 1970s to millions of lines in today’s cars. And this trend seems destined to continue in the years to come, considering all the innovations in electric/hybrid, autonomous, and connected cars. Yet there are also concerns related to onboard software, such as security, robustness, and trust.

This book covers all essential aspects of the field. After a general introduction to the topic, it addresses automotive software development, automotive software reuse, E/E architectures and safety, C-ITS and security, and future trends. The specific topics discussed include requirements engineering for embedded software systems, tools and methods used in the automotive industry, software product lines, architectural frameworks, various related ISO standards, functional safety and safety cases, cooperative intelligent transportation systems, autonomous vehicles, and security and privacy issues.

The intended audience includes researchers from academia who want to learn what the fundamental challenges are and how they are being tackled in the industry, and practitioners looking for cutting-edge academic findings. Although the book is not written as lecture notes, it can also be used in advanced master’s-level courses on software and system engineering. The book also includes a number of case studies that can be used for student projects.

About the editors

Yanja Dajsuren is a program director of the PDEng Software Technology program and assistant professor at the Software Engineering and Technology (SET) group, Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). Prior to her PhD research in the area of automotive software architecture and engineering field, she worked as a scientist and senior scientist for half a decade working on various advanced software development projects at the Philips Research Lab, NXP Semiconductors (former Philips Semiconductors), and Virage Logic. She is currently working on system/software architecture and quality related topics of autonomous and cooperative driving vehicles as well as cooperative- intelligent transport systems.

Mark van den Brand is a graduate school dean at the Department of Mathematics and Computer department and a full professor at SET group of the TU/e which has been involved in the advancement of the automotive technologies in the context of Dutch and European projects. The group is currently involved in the i-CAVE (integrated Cooperative Automated VEhicles) research and innovation program funded by the Dutch technology foundation STW that addresses current transportation challenges regarding throughput and safety with an integrated approach to automated and cooperative driving. The group is also involved in the European H2020 project C-MobILE on supporting large-scale deployment of cooperative intelligent transport systems and services across Europe. Finally, he is involved in the Automotive Technology Master’s program.
