Hyundai Mobis and Vector have agreed to the joint development of automotive software platforms. Vector, a German premium partner of AUTOSAR, which endorses global standards for automotive software, is a leading provider of development tools and software platforms to global automakers and suppliers worldwide.

Through this Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), the two companies are anticipating increased competitiveness of their automotive software in the global automotive industry.

The two companies will first install the co-developed software in core auto components related to next-generation parking systems, autonomous driving sensors, infotainment systems, and electrified parts. It is also expected that this list of core components installed with the platform will grow further.

As software platforms have become a critical component in defining competitiveness in vehicle manufacturing, global automakers are now requiring their automotive suppliers to adopt AUTOSAR-based software platforms with proven quality and versatility.

For Hyundai Mobis, this strategic partnership with Vector is only the beginning of more long-term partnerships to come with major software companies that have elemental technologies for automated driving. The first of these partnerships will most likely be concluded in the areas of automotive communication solutions and autonomous driving sensors.
