Purpose and goal

1.Build competence in Sweden within the identified architectural areas, e.g. continuous integration and deployment, the car as a system in a system of systems, etc. 2.Identify use cases describing important future needs of an architecture in the automotive domain, this includes several aspects, e.g. continuous integration and deployment, the car as a system in a system of systems, etc. 3.Define architectural approaches evaluating and balancing the potentially contradicting future needs.

Expected results and effects

NGEA has structured the deliverables in a way that enhances collaboration between the academia and the automotive industry. The NGEA project has built competence by actively engaging with other FFI projects e.g. Heavy Road, BADA, FUSE, in exchange of competence. We have produced a number of FFI and Vinnova reports, of which several have been published in research journals and presented at different workshops and international conferences. An evaluation method for the link between the business and architecture has been developed by NGEA. Partners in NGEA are already using this method.

Planned approach and implementation

NGEA is a project with many partners within the industry and the academia, which has spread the knowledge wide. We have through publications and open workshops reached a broader audience. Throughout NGEA we have worked with scenarios as a starting point and by developing and analysing our scenarios we have reached an approach, which forms the foundation for the project’s focus areas. We have developed and used an evaluation method for analyzing the result and comparing it to the NGEA scenarios. We were organized in workgroups, which has enabled a close collaboration with all partners.
