Announcement of the guideline for funding research on electronics and software development methods for the digitalisation of automobility (MANNHEIM) of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).


The project will make an essential contribution to the development of modular updates of safety-critical driving functions and thus has high strategic importance for Germany's competitiveness and innovation dynamics as a high-tech location.

The developed results will be evaluated under the condition of industrial applicability. It will include essential components of the safety-oriented development process in a DevOps cycle: specifications, methods for the implementation and validation of design steps, mechanisms of the computing platforms and the middleware, implementation of update processes, validation and runtime system monitoring, as well as the consistent integration of these design steps. The verification obligations are examined in the context of relevant safety and security norms and standards with regard to their further development.
