Project Description

The ongoing growth of software complexity in the automotive industry is a key enabler for the introduction of high-performance computers and emerging networking technologies such as Ethernet. These technologies though well established in the IT world have not been very common in automotive industry so far. Beyond provisioning significant more resources for computation and commutation they also enable new system and software development paradigms in automotive like model-based system engineering, service-oriented communication or runtime adaptability.

In line with these paradigm shifts it is the main goal of this project is to support our customer in the re-design of the entire vehicle software architecture. Luxoft will take responsibility on architecture and detailed design of the software functionalities and on the planning and specification of the underlying software platform. One central design goal is to apply the philosophy of service-oriented architectures consequently throughout the whole product development lifecycle. We will support our customer in understanding how to approach the design of new architectures, related KPIs, methodologies, tools and technologies.


The central tasks encompass planning, critical path analysis, architecture, design, specification and configuration of the underlying software platform for various in-car high performance computers. The software platform design shall consequently apply the paradigm of service-oriented architectures. Following activities need to be conducted:

* Capturing of vehicle feature requirements for the corresponding domain and derive corresponding software platform requirements.

* Top-level planning of the software platform architecture (creation of block diagrams and high-level data flow).

* Identification of available solutions on the market in order to implement the software platform architecture, checking their suitability and identify gaps.

* Create recommendations and guidelines for configuration of those solutions

* Create a dedicated platform service layer architecture in order to close gaps identified above ("middleware layer") by providing additional OEM-specific services, including but not limited to areas such as e.g. diagnostics, vehicle status, data management, sensor fusion, connectivity, security.

* Refine platform service architecture and create detailed design (components diagram, internal structure of components/software modules and service, dynamic behavior (activates, state transitions) for specific platform services

* Cross-ECU risk and impact analysis of potential technical solutions

* Documentation of suggested solutions


Must have

* University degree in Engineering, Computer Science or comparable

* 8+ years of relevant experience including strong skills in embedded/automotive software development

* Strong experience working with POSIX OSs (QNX, Linux,...etc.) or in Autonomous Drive or with Telematics ECUs development.

* Good understanding of high performance Architectures

* Outstanding collaboration and communication skill are essential

* Knowledge of software development life-cycle, practical experience with related activities

Nice to have

Knowledge of communication protocols and automotive units is an advantage

Experience with Autosar (Classic/adaptive) system development/engineering

Experience with service-based infrastructure

Experience with Requirements Management

Experience with formal software development process (Automotive SPICE)

Knowledge of functional safety development (e.g. ISO 26262)
