This research project started with the ambition to create opportunities provided by an R&D organisation in terms of new ways-of-working, new architectures, and possibly supporting new ecosystems. These opportunities could enable new business models for OEMs delivering mass-produced embedded systems.
This lead to three goals for an original equipment manufacturer aspiring to be world leading in software development:
- Minimise leadtime from idea to implementation of new software features.
- The ability to frequently deliver new software features to end customers
- Decoupling of software development from hardware and mechanical development, both in time and by the design dependencies
