With the advent of innovative software and electronics, automotive companies are applying state-of-the-art technologies to improve safety, driver experience, and fuel efficiency. Increasing use of software has caused a paradigm shift by requiring automotive companies to develop their systems while using architecture and model-based techniques. Although model-based techniques using e.g. MATLAB/Simulink and Stateflow are being accepted in the automotive industry as standard languages and tooling for developing automotive control software, the techniques for system and software architecture and design are still far from being widely accepted apart from the AUTOSAR standard, which is used to create the software for the Electronic Control Units (ECU)s.
The journal of Automotive Software Engineering is dedicated to distribute research and industrial results in the field of automotive systems and software engineering as well as overview papers in this field. The subjects of interest to JASE cover the important aspects of the field, such as automotive systems/software architectures, software process and quality, safety and security, autonomous and cooperative driving vehicle technology, and intelligent transport systems. Additionally, submissions on the development of and challenges provided by forthcoming and future vehicles such as fully electric cars, hydrogen and solar cars are welcome.
The aim is to be relevant for academia as well as industry.
