ASAM e.V. – Home of ASAM ODS

ASAM (Association for Standardization of Automation and Measuring Systems) is an incorporated association under German law. The members are primarily international car manufacturers, suppliers as well as engineering service providers in the automotive industry.
ASAM coordinates the development of technical standards, which are developed by working groups composed of experts from our member companies. The organization pursues the vision, that the tools of a development process chain can be freely interconnected and allow a seamless exchange of data. The standards define protocols, data models, file formats, and application programming interfaces (APIs) for use in the development and testing of automotive electronic control units.

A large number of popular tools in the areas of simulation, measurement, calibration as well as test automation are compliant with ASAM standards. Compliance guarantees interoperability of tools from different vendors and allows data exchange without the need for converters. Furthermore, it facilitates the exchange of unambiguous specifications between customers and suppliers. – by ASAM e.V.
