AUTOSAR Coding Standard

What is AUTOSAR, and why should my team care?

The AUTOSAR coding standard was created by an alliance of hundreds of automotive manufacturers, developers, and suppliers. Formerly called “Guidelines for the use of the C++14 language in critical and safety-related systems,” the standard consists of nearly 400 requirements that industry experts agree will mitigate bugs, remove inconsistencies, and clarify C++ code. If you are part of the automotive industry, compliance is likely mandatory. However, due to the complexity of modern software systems, most teams will benefit by having a concrete coding standard in place, such as AUTOSAR.

It seems overwhelming. What tools are available to help?

Parasoft, Perforce, and Synopsis each have proven static analysis tools that help teams adopt coding standards such as AUTOSAR and MISRA. Many of our customers use these tools in conjunction with Understand, our code comprehension offering. However, these tools can be quite expensive, and many of our customers have asked for an alternative at a fraction of the cost. We are proud to announce that Understand will help your team become AUTOSAR compliant with a much lower barrier of entry than our competitors, both in time and cost.
