KPIT Technologies Ltd, a global partner of the automotive and mobility ecosystem for the realization of software-defined vehicles, has announced its membership of the SOAFEE SIG. The aim of the SOAFEE project is to leverage the benefits of a cloud-native development environment to address the specific challenges and constraints of the automotive domain, such as functional safety, fast and accurate real-time control.
As the automotive industry moves towards software-defined vehicles, each OEM builds its own vehicle’s operating system to provide a seamless software platform compatible with central computer architectures.
KPIT has an in-depth understanding of the complexities within automotive software thanks to new-age central-compute architectures at both a functional and architectural level. KPIT partners with leading OEMs on multiple middleware programs to build the vehicle operating systems through a combination of middleware development and integration services, architecture consulting services, and software accelerators. KPIT implements a cloud-based virtual validation platform with integrated CI/CT that enables faster integrated testing across the vehicle cycle, improved time-to-market, efficiency and software quality, while focusing on standards-based end-to-end processes.
Through the association with the SOAFEE SIG initiatives, KPIT will be able to contribute and share its rich experiences related to automotive software and reusable components, complex software integration, robust middleware platform and cloud-based virtual testing platform.
Anup Sable, Chief Technology Officer and Board Member of KPIT Technologies, said: “KPIT is excited to be a working group member of SOAFEE. We believe that through collaboration and collaboration with the ecosystem, we can provide scalable platforms for developing software-defined vehicles together. Through the SIG, we will work to decouple software from hardware so that we can move to cloud-native development without having to fundamentally redesign the underlying software.”
