Future Automotive E/E Architectures

by fka

The radical transformation process currently observed in the automotive industry is most evident within vehicle Electrical/Electronic (E/E) architectures. As a basis for nearly all vehicle systems, the E/E architecture defines the structure of the entire E/E system in the vehicle and includes all E/E functions and components. More specifically, components of the E/E architecture cover:

  • Hardware components
  • Software components
  • Bus systems and network topology for data communication and
  • On-board energy network.

As a consequence of the manifold technological challenges for future E/E architectures, new development and implementation approaches for automotive E/E architectures are currently gaining traction. This whitepaper gives an overview of the current trends and technologies used by automotive OEMs.
