Automotive applications can be described as distributed embedded software which perform real-time computation on top of a heterogeneous hardware platform. One key phase in designing distributed software systems is software deployment. Therein it is decided how software components are deployed over the hardware platform, and how the communication between software components is performed. These decisions significantly determine the system performance. This chapter tackles the software deployment problem, tailored to the needs of the automotive domain. Thereby, the focus is on two issues - the configuration of the communication infrastructure and how to handle design constraints. It is shown, how state-of-the-art approaches have to be extended in order to tackle these issues, and how the overall process can be performed efficiently, by utilizing search methodologies.
