SOAFEE is an industry-led collaboration between companies across the automotive and technology sectors...


Working together to build open-source architecture for software-defined vehicles. Together we have one single goal - to create a shared platform for vehicles using cloud-native architecture that accommodates multiple hardware configurations. By making SOAFEE hardware agnostic, we plan to simplify vehicle software solutions radically.

SOAFEE Building Blocks

Achieving Software-Defined Vehicles

To achieve this goal, we are using a four-pillar principle, which helps guide our activities and roadmap to achieving software-defined vehicles.

The four pillars are:

  1. Standards
  2. New software architecture and methodologies
  3. Industry collaboration
  4. Vehicle simulation

The core principles of safety, security, and real time are inherent in each pillar.

Michael Huelsewies, SVP and Head of Architecture and Software, Continental

Continental is working closely with Arm on their SOAFEE and reference hardware ecosystem initiatives...

What is SOAFEE?

SOAFEE is a SIG consisting of companies operating involved with the automotive industry. All of these companies contribute their knowledge and experience to help develop the SOAFEE architecture together.


The SIG is designed to represent the needs of all its members that contribute toward the automotive industry. Therefore, we are ensuring that the SOAFEE membership represents that scale and all members use their collective intelligence to deliver the right solutions to technical challenges in a safety critical industry - it is paramount we all get this right.

How we work

How We Work

SOAFEE is a collection of working groups focussing on both technical and non-technical areas of the community.

Our technical working groups are currently exploring:

  • Cloud-native development
  • Cloud-native tools
  • Real time
  • Reference implementation
  • Technical steering
  • Blueprints

However, we expect that these will change and evolve in line with the iterative processes of our development.


Our non-technical working groups are currently looking at:

  • Marketing
  • Events
  • Social media
  • Business development
  • Membership

Our working groups meet monthly, but frequently share information and discuss community topics.
