The list is not very long. I have some reasons why:
- Most research articles on automotive software architecture are written by researchers, not car manufacturers.
- Strategic decisions on software architecture can be seen as a business advantages and are therefore not published.
- I have a a quite long backlog of articles in the area of automotive software architecture which I have not read yet, there may be more among those.
