Background

Automated driving and connective are the primary drivers of the automotive transformation, shaping a new ecosystem for moving people and goods sustainable and efficiently.

Scope

Eclipse MoEc provides an open software development kit (SDK) for infrastructure-based planning, motion, parking and charging solutions within the Software Defined Vehicle (SDV) ecosystem.

Why Here?

Software Defined Vehicle (SDV) builds the foundation for the future automotive solution space.

Project Scheduling

Release 1.0.0 is planned for mid of 2024.

Description

Eclipse MoEc provides an open software development kit (SDK) for infrastructure-based planning, motion, parking and charging solutions within the Software Defined Vehicle (SDV) ecosystem.

The MoEc SDK covers the three primary "Software Defined Architecture" (SDA) pillars:

  1. MoEc.OS: Orchestration of demanded control-plane components such as Eclipse Leda and Eclipse Cyclone DDS.
  2. MoEc.MOTION: All necessary application-plane software-components and algorithm e.g., from "Simultaneous Localization And Mapping" (SLAM), through PID-controller for actuation, up to specific motion-controller for aspects such as lane-keeping.
  3. MoEc.INTEGRATION: Required data-plane software components for integration into specific environments such as CARLA Simulator, Eclipse SUMO Simulator and 1:10 RC vehicle via a "Common Vehicle Interface" (CVI).

Objective is to provide a straight forward implementation including a easy to understand documentation, making the related aspects such as robotic algorithm, multi agent systems (MAS) easy to understand.

Initial Contribution

The initial contributed code was developed in context of the publicly funded project SofDCar.

Source Repository Type

We'd like to create the project in the context of the Working Group "Software Defined Vehicle" (not sure whether this is the "parent project"?, but this was not available as an option
