Introducing Software Ecosystems for Mass-Produced Embedded Systems
Paper in proceedings, 2012
Embedded systems are today predominantly developed with an integration-centric approach. The paper identifies the need to remove full-scale integration and process synchronisation of involved development teams. The paper presents software ecosystem as an alternative approach to develop embedded software and identifies a set of key activities for how an original equipment manufacturer can introduce an ecosystem.
An example of a software ecosystem is presented for the car
industry together a case which implemented some of the ecosystem platform properties.
