The AUTOSAR partnership with more than 300 partners provides a globally recognized standardized software framework for intelligent mobility. The AUTOSAR stand includes the Classic Platform used all over the world and the Adaptive Platform for modern E/E systems architectures. Some companies, including AUTOSAR partner companies, have announced their vehicle software development strategies to address the challenges in the mobility sector. Some strategies, for example, deal with the implementation

This paper presents the working hypothesis on the AUTOSAR "Vehicle Operating System", showing what can be understood by this and how even such radical-seeming approaches can be effectively supported with existing offerings from the AUTOSAR standard already today. At the same time, we can identify fields of action for the further evolution of the standard. Challenges in the Mobility Sector The stakeholders in the automotive industry are still addressing the challenges of future mobility, with the guiding principles of connectivity, autonomy, sharing and electrification (CASE), as well as increased user expectations, in various ways. A modern car is sometimes compared to a "mobile device," referring to our smartphones. That may be true when seen from the perspective of vehicle use. Here, key factors for the user experience play an essential role, for example end-to-end connectivity, applications for accessing vehicle functions, or even regular software updates in the background. In vehicle development, there are differences that have a significant influence on the complexity of the requirements. On the one hand, there are the requirements for real-time behavior or the scalability of memory and computing power, considering automated driving, for example. In addition, there are strict regulatory requirements for functional safety and
