The SOAFEE community are excited to welcome eSOL as a voting member of the SOAFEE SIG.

Why eSOL is joining the SOAFEE SIG

eSOL has been supporting open-source software standards such as ROS and Autoware for a very long time. We believe that our functional safe solutions based on our COTS products, eMCOS SDK, and automotive experienced engineering services are the foundation for applications with functionality based on open-source solutions.

Based on our many years of experience in the area of functional safe automotive software, we are very excited to be working on a complete software platform that will finally enable the safe and secure software-defined car for all OEMs.

Masaki Gondo, CTO and Senior Executive Vice President at eSOL

eSOL will help that the functional safety aspect is considered in SOAFEE and thus a safe framework for autonomous driving becomes available for all OEMs. We have worked with other SOAFEE members before and are looking forward to defining a common platform for future OEM software architectures for their software defined vehicles.
