Virtual ECU for AUTOSAR-based Automotive Embedded System Validation 

The automotive industry is undergoing transformation rapidly, due to the rise of autonomous driving, electrification, and software-defined vehicles (SDVs), adding complexity to embedded system platforms. Traditional validation methods depending on the availability of target hardware are proving expensive and inefficient, particularly due to late-stage bug fixes and delay caused due to chip shortages. Virtualization is emerging as a key solution, allowing for early validation of embedded software in a simulated environment, which accelerates time to market. This practice is also crucial for the development of SDVs, the future of the industry.
