Along with the software defined car, the automotive industry makes increasingly use of open source approaches for software outside the vehicle, too. Modularization of software components and API harmonization are key enabler for the use of open source, that can be seamlessly integrated in existing simulation tool chains.
We will show how we use openPASS as an ecosystem for co-creation: we commonly shape the MantleAPI as an agnostic interface, allowing to use e.g. the open source OpenSCENARIO engine of openPASS in different simulation environments.
This working model could be the blueprint for future code first standardization with regard to further open simulation standards and simulation models.
