SOA is about to enter automotive networks based on the SOME/IP middleware and an Ethernet high-bandwidth communication layer. It promises to meet the growing demands on connectivity and flexibility for software components in modern cars. Largely heterogeneous service requirements and time-sensitive network functions make QoS agreements a vital building block within future automobiles. Existing middleware solutions, however, do not allow for a dynamic selection of QoS.

This paper presents a service-oriented middleware along with a multi-protocol stack, which support the different communication classes as derived from a thorough requirements analysis. A service protocol for QoS negotiations is part of our solution. We validate the feasibility of our approach in a case study and evaluate its performance in a simulation model of a realistic in-car network. Our findings indicate that QoS aware communication can indeed meet the requirements, while the impact of the service negotiations and setup times of the network remain acceptable provided the cross-traffic during negotiations stays below 70 % of the available bandwidth.
