RACE (Reliable Automation and Control Environment) developed an embedded ICT platform to enable autonomous driving. It allows the development of (new) functions for vehicles based on software and utilizing a standardized (RACE) hardware platform (instead of requiring a dedicated function-specific ECU hardware).
RACE platform replaces dedicated functional ECUs
Enables easy, fast and cheap integration of (new) vehicle functions through SW
Reduced complexity through open, standardized RACE platform:
- Lower number of hardware components
- Less wiring
Multi-use of sensors and actuators (standard HW components) for several functions
Fulfilling high safety & reliability standards (ISO26262) including fail operational behavior
