The amount of software in cars has been growing over the years. Furthermore, cars in the future also expect to demand more and more software functionalities. Adding to the complexity, the automotive industry has specific constraints and requirements that mandate unique solutions. These specific constraints also bring many challenges to software engineering in cars. In this paper, the automotive software engineering concerns and challenges will be addressed. Software engineering methods such as traditional, agile and/or spiral will be evaluated against the unique environment found in the automotive industry.
