AUTOSAR is designed to bring structure, clean interfaces, and implicit methodologies to a process—in this case, the design of distributed systems within automobiles. AUTOSAR is essentially a set of standards encompassing interfaces and software module definitions. Most importantly, it sets forth a structure for the embedded software that ultimately operates a vehicle’s complex network-based distributed system. Mentor Graphics leads the way in AUTOSAR implementation with the industry’s most comprehensive tool suite of vehicle system design tools—Volcano VSx.

|Operating System||Other ‚AUTOSAR|
|Supported Tools/Features||The emerging AUTOSAR standard for vehicle software design has the potential to deliver new economies and efficiencies to automotive design and manufacturing. A vehicle’s electronic content approaches almost half the cost of the vehicle today, with much of that content running on embedded code. Software will enable differentiation among automobile platforms in the future, and AUTOSAR is poised to take the industry in that direction.|
