BEIJING–(BUSINESS WIRE)–ThunderSoft, the world’s leading provider of operating system products and technologies, has officially joined the SOAFEE SIG (Scalable Open Architecture for Embedded Edge Special Interest Group) as a voting member. Building on its technical strength in intelligent vehicles and AIOT, ThunderSoft will strengthen the group’s software ecosystem while continuing to define a software architecture and a reference software framework for the vehicles of the future.
SOAFEE was created to meet the need to meet the challenge of increasingly complex vehicle software and formed by Arm, the world leader in semiconductor intellectual property, bringing together industry experts such as Continental, Volkswagen CARIAD, Amazon Web Services and BOSCH. It aims to create a unified and scalable automotive software development architecture. Based on cloud-native technologies, SOAFEE places the entire automotive software development process (system architecture, application development and deployment, and functional testing) in the cloud, simulating the automotive software development environment and disregarding the underlying hardware. This allows a large part of the functional verification to be done in advance, which greatly reduces the development and maintenance cost of the whole automotive software system and benefits all companies and users in the production chain. ‘supply.
