Traditional methods for organization of controls development tend not to facilitate the speedy completion of complex tasks such as development of an experimental vehicle control system, particularly when staffing levels are low. This paper proposes the use of Scrum Agile software development methods to streamline the control development cycle for a prototype vehicle. The EcoCAR 2 competition vehicle at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University is used as a case study for this implementation. Specific protocols and workflows for development are outlined and examples of implementation on the EcoCAR 2 vehicle are provided. Implementation results indicate that the method allowed for an aggressive development schedule for the vehicle software without compromising reliability, maintainability, or upgradeability.
