The software development process is at the heart of intelligent vehicles (connected and autonomous vehicles), and it must be managed with diligence. The development of automaticity and connectivity is carried out through functional safety and, respectively, cybersecurity development processes, guided by standards that describe procedures, best practices, hazards, threats, and management strategies. By improving the software development process, the ergonomics of the intelligent vehicles will be increased. This paper presents the way on how to manage the process of achieving automaticity and connectivity through software development and if the COVID-19 pandemic could altered the management team strategy and software development process.
