Software for the mobility of the future – how open source can help and enable business
Increasing levels of automation require increased automotive embedded software complexity, putting new demands on the existing tools and frameworks. Instead of solving these challenges alone, the path forward is to partner in non-differentiating areas and collaborate. Bosch has adopted open source as a collaborative approach where all domains can meet and work together on common interests by partitioning software and data into differentiating (typically proprietary) and non-differentiating parts. Non-differentiating parts like software or data sets can be public for everyone, helping to save costs, creating de-facto standards by broad usage and making functionalities transparent, which can help the authorities while homologating vehicles. But there is also the possibility to make money – besides the cost-saving aspect – with public data and software. This presentation will outline the importance of open collaboration and the related monetization potential that will help transform the automotive industry.
