Using existing open-source systems or components in automotive development sounds like an easy way to cost and time-to-market reduction. However, as in all software and systems, there are caveats regarding security vulnerabilities and general updates, bug fixes, and releases.

With recent new regulations like UNECE R and ISO/SAE 21434, cybersecurity and software updates in the automotive industry require automakers to take a proactive approach to software maintenance and support and to implement best practices for managing the security and reliability of their systems over the long term.

In this free, 60-minute webinar, Dr Joachim Schlosser from Elektrobit will discuss problems and possible solutions associated with open-source components and platforms in the automotive industry.

Key topics and takeaways:

  • Understand how regulations like UNECE R 155 and 156 mandate long periods of fixes and updates by automakers and suppliers
  • Discover how long-term maintenance of highly-customized software can impact a workforce negatively
  • Find out which solution paths are available today
