The AUTomotive Open System Architecture (AUTOSAR) development partnership offers the latest revision of its Adaptive Platform, Release 17-10 that integrates several new features into the open system architecture standard. These include communication features such as time synchronization across all ECUs, full support for ISO 13400/ ISO 14229 diagnostic standards and execution management features such as machine state handling. On the conceptual level, safety and security features were also enhanced in this release. AUTOSAR made Release 17-10 available on its website on October 27th, 2017 according to its six-month publishing schedule.
One of the major achievements featured in AUTOSAR Adaptive Platform Release 17-10 is support for RESTful Web Services: Representational State Transfer (short: REST) is a programming paradigm for distributed systems (e.g., web services). REST-compliant web services allow requesting systems to access and manipulate textual representations of web resources using a uniform and predefined set of stateless operations, thus facilitating a unified interface.
Release 17-10 also contains multiple additions to the execution management, such as resource management, a recovery action framework and machine state handling. These modifications enable the platform to react to errors in a very flexible way and avoid interference.
Furthermore, the completion of ISO 13400/ ISO 14229 standard implementation allows compatibility with both diagnostics over IP and CAN-based diagnostics approaches. For more details, visit AUTOSAR.
