The significance of software within modern cars increases continuously. A manufacturer’s competitive advantage relies more and more on compelling functionalities provided to the passengers. This raises the pressure on software architects of electronic automotive components. The successful integration of different software becomes a major challenge. This paper presents an approach to give support on that issue by the use of multicore hardware architectures. By reflecting the internal structure of the software in the underlying hardware, the scheduling of tasks performed in parallel can be determined based on the internal architecture rather than on performance aspects only.
