The need to most efficiently manage the constantly increasing complexity of electronically controlled functions in today's and future vehicles is evident. The goal of EAST-EEA is to enable a proper electronic integration through definition of an open architecture to reach hardware and software interoperability for mostly distributed hardware.
This will be achieved by defining a layered software architecture focussed on a middleware concept, which provides interfaces and services to support portability of embedded software modules on a high quality level. The architecture will include general commodity aspects as well as specific aspects of proprietary applications.
C-LAB contributes to the aspects Modelling Language, Middleware Architecture, Telematics Networks, and Human Machine Interface.
