Just as cellphones morphed into pocket computers, vehicles have become connected smart devices on wheels. With more lines of code than the largest operating system, the current complexity of a software-defined vehicle (SDV) can negatively impact time-to-market and, ultimately, the pace of innovation. Even more importantly, at least for the automotive sector, these complexities can impede the ability to meet safety and security requirements.
Reimagining the vehicle architecture can address these challenges. With an ecosystem of partners to help them embrace this engineering revolution, manufacturers can separate safety and security from non-critical features, enabling them to ease the burden of certification while accelerating user-facing innovation using open-source tools. In the process, they can bring new features and functionality to market faster than ever before
