Technical and Structural Approaches To Centralize Automotive E/E Architectures


A technical paper titled "Methodical Approach for Centralization Evaluation of Modern Automotive E/E Architectures" was published by researchers at University of Stuttgart and Daimler Truck AG. Abstract: "Centralization is considered as a key enabler to master the CPU-intensive features of the modern car. The development and architecture change towards the next generation car is influenced ... » read more

Ensure Functional Safety Using Siemens’ AUTOSAR Solutions


As the prevalence of automated driving, electrification, and connected vehicle applications increases, the complexity of electrical and electronic (E/E) vehicle architecture is increasing, and vehicle safety requirements are becoming more demanding. Solution architects and engineers are looking for ways to manage it all. And they can, with the help of our comprehensive AUTOSAR solution that pro... » read more

The Migration of Engine ECU Software From Single-Core to Multi-Core


Abstract "As multiple functions have been added to single-core-based engine electronic control units (ECUs) in vehicles, automotive researchers and manufacturers have actively studied multi-core architecture for engine ECUs. Multi-core architecture can provide load balancing and parallelism that can meet the requirements of international organization standard (ISO) 26262. However, since real-w... » read more

Big Changes Ahead For Connected Vehicles


Carmakers are reworking their electronic architectures so they can tap into a growing number of external services and internal options, similar to the way a data center taps into various services over its internal network. In the past, this has been largely confined to internal services such as on-board Internet connectivity, and external traffic routing and music. The current vision is to g... » read more

Using Hypervisor For IVI And AUTOSAR Consolidation On An ECU


Current approaches used to tackle the complexities described earlier in this paper (cockpit domain units) are both cost-prohibitive and lacking in performance. Utilizing virtualization in automotive software architecture provides a better approach when taking on these complexities. This can be achieved by encapsulating different heterogeneous automotive platforms inside virtual machines running... » read more

Blog Review: May 1


Synopsys' Melissa Kirschner questions whether a unified standard for safety-related code development will be enough to secure connected cars as MISRA and AUTOSAR merge C++ guidelines. In a podcast, Mentor's Brent Klingforth and John McMillan share questions and answers about rigid-flex PCB design, including the value of incorporating flexible circuits and the key challenges faced when doing ... » read more

Driving By Ethernet


The race to add more sophisticated and safety-critical electronics into cars is forcing carmakers to revisit the communications systems within increasingly electrified and connected vehicles. Until very recently, communication between components within a vehicle was simplistic, and communication between vehicles was non-existent. All of that is changing quickly. Rapid and secure communicatio... » read more

Autonomous Cars Drive New Software


Autonomous driving and other advanced features will require much more sophisticated software than what is used in vehicles today. To make this all work will require complex algorithms as well as co-designed hardware, which can make real-time decisions to avoid accidents and adjust to changing road conditions. Automobiles already take advantage of sophisticated software executed by a variety ... » read more

Self-Driving Cars Rattle Supply Chain


Automotive compute workloads are consolidating as carmakers push toward autonomous vehicles, but the changes necessary to make this all work are causing huge disruptions in an industry that has fine-tuned its supply chain over more than a century. Consolidation is essential for a variety of reasons, including efficiency of the computations, complexity management, and lower deployment costs. ... » read more

What’s New In Connected Autos


Connected cars and the Internet of Things go together like peanut butter and jelly. But realizing the future of autonomous vehicles will demand close attention to be paid to cybersecurity, functional-safety standards, and other critical factors. [getkc id="76" kc_name="IoT"] will advance the era of self-driving cars, which currently is dominated by Tesla Motors. At the same time, it will cha... » read more
