Over the last few years, the AUTOSAR initiative (AUTomotive Open System ARchitecture, has successfully worked on establishing a standard for automotive software architectures. This course introduces you to the main goals and contents of this standard. Some of the aspects covered are the methodology behind AUTOSAR, the concept and purpose of the virtual functional bus (VFB), and the different layers of the standard software architecture, which are described in different templates (application layer, run-time environment (RTE), basic software).


  • System engineers, software architects, software developers
  • Anyone involved in the development process for automotive software


  • Get an overview of AUTOSAR with the main focus on application software and system modeling
  • Learn about the contents of and the relationship between the different documents and templates
  • Get to know the basic terminology (e.g. RTE, SWC, VFB)
