Key Standards That Apply to Software and Hardware Development in Automotive Industry

The automotive industry is quite diverse with several stakeholders in the ecosystem. Although a vehice carries the brand name of an OEM, it is a joint-effort of various entities including the tier-1 suppliers, product engineering companies and after-market suppliers. These stakeholders have their tasks cut out for them.

For instance, an OEM might require an advanced automotive lighting solution for one of their flagship car models. The OEM would delegate this job to a suitable and trustworthy tier-1 supplier. The supplier also might need some protocol stacks, platform software, functional safety compliance, etc. for which they rely on product engineering companies.

Naturally, when components from a range of entities get fitted in a vehicle, some sort of standardization is mandatory. In addition to standardization, ensuring safety, security and complaince is another dimension that the automotive industry must consider.

In order to manage such constraints and future compatibity issues, various organizations and consortiums like ISO, SAE, AUTOSAR, etc. come up with standards. We have compiled a few of the key standards widely used and applied in the automotive industry, in the form of infographics.
