AUTOSAR Essentials | #EnginEEringTheJigsaw | Episode F6

What is #AUTOSAR? Depending on the context, it can mean many things to an E/E systems engineer. Join our jigsaw master Iain on a walk through the basics of the “AUTomotive Open System ARchitecture”, its history, and topics like software and methodology.



#EnginEEringTheJigsaw is a new series from #VectorInformatik that explains the technologies and concepts that are being built into the electrical/electronic (‘E/E’) systems of modern vehicles, and how Vector helps engineers to simplify their daily work:

To help you approach the episodes, we are grading them according to the level of content, as ‘foundation’, ‘intermediate’ or ‘advanced’. For more information on the series, please watch our introduction episode:

    Thanks a lot for this very informative #EngineeringTheJigsaw series….
    I’ve a question…. in the video the presenter mentions HCPs for AUTOSAR Adaptive…What is HCP? Or is it HPC as in High Performance Controllers…
