This is an excellent proposal, a long felt need in the
Automotive industry. We welcome this idea !
At Bosch in India, we are working on a similar project
using the OSEE project ( (www.eclipse.org/osee)
as a platform.
This is an advanced proposal because we have a strong
workflow, an SCM, REQM, project management and reporting
modules already available,
ready to use from day One ! And this is more than an
IDE, it is a complete Application Life Cycle management tool.
With minimum or no configuration, one can start using this
ALM tool right away for simple automotive software projects.
In the last few months, we have been enhancing the OSEE
platform in co-ordination with the OSEE project leader from
We are enhancing features like traceability, dependency
analysis, version management, checklist driven reviews…...etc.
We will be more than happy to provide an enhanced version
of OSEE as a starting base for this new "Eclipse IDE for
With contributions from the Auto IWG group and the general
Eclipse community, we could develop this into a full-fledged
standard platform for Automotive software developers.
There are plans to cloud-enable the OSEE platform. We are
also working on including a Model-based framework into the
module of OSEE that can be used for domain-model driven ECU
With your suggestions and inputs, we could prioritise on
the basic features required to make this a standard platform
for automotive software development.
We invite your comments & feedback.
