Abstract

HAL4SDV will focus on methods, technologies and processes to be used in series development of vehicles ready for market in 2030 onwards, extrapolating the expected dramatic developments in the constitutive areas of microelectronics, communication technologies, software engineering and AI for the period after 2030. The following assumptions about abstract requirements as basis for this period are: 1) Absolute data-centricity and complete code portability through appropriate hardware abstraction ensure maximum functional flexibility, reusability, and minimum time-to-market; 2) Ensure efficient fusion of decentralized, heterogeneous data streams for efficient high-performance processing using specialized, reliable hardware architectures; 3) Inside-out continuum, i.e., there is no longer a distinction between inside and outside the vehicle, all resources in the vehicle are accessible from the outside, and the vehicle has full access to all resources on the outside; 4) Unlimited horizontal scalability (between moving road users/ vehicles/infrastructure) and vertical scalability (e.g. vehicle sizes); 5)Real-time capability is guaranteed, adequate computational models and suitable hardware/software or E/E architectures are used; 6) Vehicles are fully “liable”, and they are defensible against cyber-attacks. With this overall and long-term vision in mind, HAL4SDV will focus on the short-term objectives of specifying the hardware abstraction layer, its standardisation, the development of appropriate tool chains and methodological aspects to achieve or regain technological leadership in core areas. Needless to say, the latter may also have an impact on subsequent projects (dedicated to the layers above the hardware abstraction) as well as on parallel development work in Europe, e.g. on chip design and fabrication, mobility services and software ecosystems in general.
