Auto IWG

Open Source Initiative for Automotive Software Development Tools

Objectives

Innovation in the automotive industry is mostly achieved by electronics and software functions. The system automobile is becoming increasingly complex, an open developer tool workbench that extends throughout the supply-chain is becoming a must for the industry. Improvements and innovations to these software development tools are required to accelerate product development, create high quality software features and improve integration across the automotive supply chain.

The Eclipse Foundation is pleased to announce the creation of a new open source initiative to define and implement a standard platform for the software development tools used in the automotive industry. The new Eclipse Automotive Industry Working Group will be open to any organizations that want to participate in the goal of establishing a standard tools platform that will be used throughout the automotive supply chain.

  • To provide an infrastructure for tool development required by the automotive industry
  • To address and support the needs for the whole automotive software development cycle
  • To avoid that the same non-competitive basic tool functionality is redeveloped over and over again
  • To join forces and meet current and future requirements in terms of tool runtime performance and memory consumption

Work Packages

WP1: Eclipse Automotive Tool Platform

Definition of a common Eclipse Automotive Tool Platform as reference for vendors and users of Eclipse-based automotive software design tools.

More information here: Auto_IWG_WP1

WP2: Big Model Support

Large models that exist in the automotive engineering space tend to create performance, loading, saving and other problems with the existing Eclipse implementations. The work package intents to find resolutions for these issues.

More information here: Auto_IWG_WP2

WP3: CDT Extensions

The development of embedded systems in the automotive area has additional requirements to CDT that will be collected, analyzed and supported from this working group.

More information here: Auto_IWG_WP3

WP4: Functional Safety Relevant Development Process and Environment

Focus of this WP shall be to analyze which functions should have a toolchain in a safety environment.
