Using software to unlock better driving experiences

Increasingly, today’s drivers are demanding vehicles and driving experiences that are integrated and connected into their digital lives. The old boundaries between automotive electronics and consumer electronics are blurring as vehicles evolve into software dominated systems delivering enhanced functions such as automated driving, full electric powertrain and V2X (Vehicle to everything) connectivity.

In 2010 the typical car had 10 million lines of code; today that figure has reached 100 million. To manage this increasing complexity and connectivity, automobile manufacturers need to develop innovative electronic architectures in which new software solutions, powerful vehicle computers and ECUs are integrated and capable of working seamlessly together.

And as well as reliably integrating new software and functionalities, manufacturers will still need to satisfy the stringent safety requirements of such as ISO 26262, the ASIL D standard (Automotive Safety Integrity Level D) – as well as meet critical cybersecurity requirements such as ISO 27001.
