The AUTOSAR architecture is based on a 3-layered architecture model, developed jointly by the stakeholders of the automotive industry including — the automobile manufacturers, the suppliers, and the tool developers.

Thus, MCAL helps in making the upper layers independent of the low lying hardware platform. While talking about the application layer implementation, three of the most important parts that should be considered are:.

The architscture software component constitutes the simplest form of an application with certain functionality. AUTOSAR defines standardized interfaces associated with all the application software components required to develop automotive applications.

These software components are connected with the help of well-defined ports. Runnable or Runnable Entities are defined within the VFB specifications and is part of an atomic software component described in a later section.

AUTOSAR – Automotive Open Systems Architecture

Runnable are defined as the smallest fragments of code or a sequence of instructions given by component and executed by RTE. A runnable entity is triggered either cyclically or during an event such as data reception. Depiction of a typical Software Component. The AUTOSAR Software Components use well-defined ports, which encapsulate certain interfaces as a guarantee for type safety while components are communicating with each other.


A port is mapped to a single component and represents a communication point between the components. As we discussed earlier, the AUTOSAR standard defines certain standardized interfaces for the application software components that are required to develop various automotive applications.

This definition of the interfaces helps in obtaining the required functionality of the vehicle application. The port interface required by an application software component serves as the input to the RTE port creation.

AUTOSAR – Why it is Future of Automotive?

The server performs the request service and sends a response to the request. The decision related to what all information should be exchanged through sender-receiver communication and which of the services should be called by the client-server communication — are taken by the interface. This virtual bus abstracts the applications from the infrastructure. The VFB communicates via dedicated ports, which means that the communication interfaces of the application software must be mapped to these ports.

Types of communication between the SW-Cs; Image credit: Autosra the inter and intra-ECU communication between the application software components communication is managed through the RTE.

The Role of RTE: Application layer exchanges data with the underlying layers via the sender and receiver ports of the RTE. And it is here that the Complex Device Driver comes into scenario. The concept of Complex driver is laayered for application components that call for a direct access to the hardware devices on the ECU.


Injection control or electronic valve control applications are good examples of such applications that require direct access to the hardware.

This will help you understand the software modules and device drivers associated with Memory Stack. The memory management services ensure access to the memory cluster, to the devices or software functions, for reading and writing data to non-volatile memory media like Flash or EEPROM. Ea module facilitates abstraction from the addressing scheme of underlying EEPROM driver and hence provides a uniform addressing scheme.

We will also share an introduction to specifications of CAN based communication stack.

For example, if the underlying Bus type of the in-vehicle network is CAN, then CAN implementation of the communication stack is executed. It packs the signals to a PDU at the transmitter and unpacks the received PDU to provide signal level access to the application at the receiver. PduR is also responsible for PDU level gatewaying i.

Gatewaying can also be done when a PDU is to be routed from one controller to another over the same protocol. Its main purpose is to autsoar the transition between normal operation and bus-sleep mode of the network. Work with us People at Embitel Celebrations at Embitel.
