  8. 8. Let’s start! © Codethink 2018
  9. 9. © Codethink 2018 Session structure When producing systems for automotive... 1. Disruption. 2. Hypothesis. 3. What to do 4. What to do then. 5. Takeaways. Total: 20 minutes
  10. 10. Disruption © Codethink 2018
  11. 11. © Codethink 2018 Disruption 2018 FROM TO AND THEN Mobile Phone that “does multiple other things”. Device you can make phone calls with. Computer that connects people. Automobile Car that “does multiple other things”. Device you can drive. Data/computing Center that connects people (digitally and physically)... autonomously.
  12. 12. © Codethink 2018 FLOSS revolution ● Open Source is the main revolution in software. ● The current disruption automotive is going through cannot be explained without software. ● Embracing Open Source will be key to become/remain as an industry leader.
  13. 13. © Codethink 2018 Challenges ● Complexity is exploding. ● Still lack of “software culture”. ● Little perception of software delivery as differentiation factor. ● Limited collaboration culture. ● Open Source consumers.
  14. 14. Hypothesis © Codethink 2018
  15. 15. © Codethink 2018 Hypothesis When it comes to producing the software systems for the coming world of autonomous vehicles: ● What we are doing today, won’t work. ● What we know today, won’t be enough.
  16. 16. © Codethink 2018 Hypothesis Are we at least learning fast enough, at least?
  17. 17. © Codethink 2018 Hypothesis Think, design, execute... to learn fast.
  18. 18. What to do to learn faster in software delivery. © Codethink 2018
  19. 19. © Codethink 2018 Embrace the Open Source journey The journey can be simplified in 5 stages: 1. FOSS consumer. 2. FOSS producer. 3. FOSS contributor. 4. Good FOSS citizen. 5. FOSS organization.
  20. 20. © Codethink 2018 Learn from other industries ● Hardware support strategies. ● From “X”aaS to SD”X” / “X” as Code. ● Updates at scale. Software maintenance/support. ● Deployment management. ● Many others...
  21. 21. © Codethink 2018 Adopt CD principles. ● Agile/Lean as principles not dogma. ● Open Source tools for better adaptability and interoperability. ● Shorten feedback loops… to the minimum. ● Release early, release often. ● Test: Emulation -> Simulation -> HW (lab, controlled env., EOL). ● Others...
  22. 22. © Codethink 2018 Software systems as portfolio ● Take ownership of your software stack thanks to FOSS. ● Adopt a software portfolio approach with a common codebase. ● R&D, pre-productization, production and maintenance/support should take place in parallel and feed one another. ● Many others...
  23. 23. © Codethink 2018 Software ecosystem vs supply chain. ● Collaboration requires trust, which requires transparency. ● Promote transparency within your company. ● From providers to partners. ● From code to specs to code. ● Learn from Open Source projects.
  24. 24. Takeaways © Codethink 2018
  25. 25. © Codethink 2018 Takeaways Who we are producing software systems today will not meet autonomous vehicles world demands.
  26. 26. © Codethink 2018 Takeaways With what we know today about software delivery, the industry will not be able to meet expectations either.
  27. 27. © Codethink 2018 Takeaways Companies need to set up strategies to learn faster when it comes to software delivery.
  28. 28. © Codethink 2018 Takeaways FOSS environments are the most efficient learning ecosystems. Embrace Open Source, become an Open Source company.
