The talk will focus on systems engineering a software-defined vehicle and its corresponding software development kit. We will introduce principles of a robotic vehicle platform, and app integration. We will then introduce the role of models to specify the APIs and behavior requirements, both for platform and App pieces. The models would need to be able to generate a test bench of a particular platform or platform-to-app integration. To do this, we will introduce a novel method for composing models of systems of systems. The talk will conclude with a discussion on agile development with cross-functional teams.
