Today, embedded electronics represents in average more than 40% of the vehicle value. This can be explained by the great number of functions that it can provide: ADAS (Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems), engine management (ignition, injection…), transmission (clutch…), active security (ABS, ESP…) and passive security (airbag, parking aid…), comfort on board (navigation) etc.

This trend tends to grow with the developments tied to the electric and autonomous vehicle.

Related challenges

Dozens of calculators are now necessary in each vehicle. They continuously receive captors information, process data in real-time before they transfer their decisions to actuators which will adapt the system parameters.

For automotive suppliers, the challenge is to design 100% safe solutions which can adapt to each and every driving situation without the driver’s decisions, all the while providing the best on-board comfort for the passengers.
