Edge Middleware Solution​

Accelerate feature launches​ and manage functions over lifetime – ​safely, securely, and efficiently

Experience the EDGE!​

The ongoing shift to the software-defined vehicle (SDV) is both a major achievement of, and a huge challenge for, the automotive industry worldwide. Customer expectations must be met, and new functions rolled out well after each vehicle hits the road. Vehicles must be regularly updated with new features as per ever changing trends throughout their lifecycle. Decoupling hardware and software and consolidating ECUs into a few powerful computing units is the next big evolutionary step. Processing data at the edge of a network is already an established way of managing complexity in other industries. We help you leverage it in hours!​

Simplify automotive software development by leveraging DevOps practices

Validated and long-established practices like abstracting vehicle APIs and containerization help simplify integration. As containers are platform-independent, software applications become portable and easily deployable across different hardware configurations and operating environments, increasing efficiency and reducing operational costs.​

ETAS` Edge Middleware Solution simplifies automotive software development by introducing mobile app like programming for body and comfort vehicle functions and unlocks the ability to easily read sensor data and safely control actuators. The solution consists of:​

  • Development & Operations Tooling: Integrated and easy-to-use DevOps tooling helping developers create, integrate, test, and manage vehicle applications​
  • In-Vehicle Middleware: A comprehensive open-source based software stack with a standardized vehicle abstraction layer to manage the safe and secure execution of vehicle services & applications​
  • System Integration & Engineering Services: Expert services to seamlessly integrate into existing software environment and infrastructure, and lifecycle management of the overall solution​
