Putting SDV Development on the Fast Track to Production

In the rapidly-shifting landscape of automotive technology, success — fast or slow — increasingly depends upon the vehicle software. The challenge for OEMs is how to get to market faster while adhering to strict safety guidelines. Expedited progress depends on architectural flexibility, adaptability and interoperability to minimize proprietary code development, while adhering to functional safety requirements that meet evolving regulatory challenges.

In the third annual RTI Automotive Forum, automotive technology leaders will convene to address how to optimize development on a production-ready path. Please join us in this 90-minute virtual forum to hear insights and best practices that enable automotive manufacturers to innovate fearlessly while accelerating success.

Automotive Keynote

Accelerating Innovation while navigating FuSa Compliance

The future winners in SDV will be characterized by speed of innovation. Yet compliance with mandatory functional safety and cybersecurity standards and regulations typically slows the pace of innovation. New certified software development tools and certified software components partly shifts the burden of FuSa and Cybersecurity compliance to auto suppliers, giving manufacturers the opportunity to focus on innovation. This presentation will review the state-of-the-art certified code generation tools, associated software libraries, and lifecycle support.
