Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), autonomous functions, and connected applications bring a revolution to automotive systems and software. In this talk, I will introduce several ongoing research topics in the domain of automotive systems and software: (1) a design-stage framework for connected applications with an emphasis on timing and security, (2) a flexible and customizable plug-and-play platform to support installations, updates, or activations of applications at dealership, before driving, or even during driving, (3) a certification protocol to certify outsourced software but keep source codes confidential, and (4) a message clustering approach to prevent congestion in the connected environment. Current achievements and research challenges will be covered in the talk.
