On the road to the software-defined vehicle – developing andoperating software and services with greater efficiency

January 4, 2023

On the road to the software-defined vehicle
Digital platforms provide the basis for tool-assisted development and efficient operation of software-based vehicle functions and thus pave the way for various new use cases and business models. The platforms create an ecosystem that must serve as an attractive environment offering added value to both parties – i.e. the provider and the user of services. With PANTARIS, ETAS has developed a solution that is tailored to the specific requirements of the automotive sector. This enables faster development of new functions and easier integration of these functions into the vehicle.

Scudo: A Proposal for Resolving Software Supply Chain Insecurities in Vehicles

whitePaper | July 15, 2022

For many years supply chain security appears to have been something of a second-tier priority for both software developers and the companies that rely upon their product. It was more common to focus attention on what happens after the software is built, through code reviews, penetration testing, and the development and implementation of patches and updates. This type of approach overlooks the very real possibility that, even with all the efforts mentioned above, end users still have no guarantee they are actually installing the application originally conceived as a code base. Over time, this somewhat myopic vision has given malicious actors multiple opportunities to insert malware or damage images. But, recent events have rapidly forced the industry to take a wider perspective on how software security is defined.

These investments have dramatically improved the efficiency of global LSPs and forever reshaped the ways in which they move freight.

Relying On Drivers To Self-Report?

whitePaper | January 9, 2023

There are many risks associated with employing individuals with invalid motor vehicle records to drive on company time. At the top of the list is public safety. That’s why commercial driver license holders are mandated by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulation (FMCSA) to notify their employer of any motor vehicle violations within 30 days of conviction. If the driver’s commercial driver’s license (CDL) is suspended, revoked, canceled, or if he/she is disqualified from driving, the employee must notify the employer within one business day.¹ This allows the employer to take action immediately.
