Support Information


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.
