Increasingly, consumers expect an in-vehicle experience that mirrors the personalized and seamless connected experience they have in their home or office. Automakers are tasked with creating this user experience while ensuring that critical systems are safe, secure and reliable. Additionally, Electronic Control Unit (ECU) consolidation is a growing trend in automotive electronic design. The vehicle cockpit is evolving with multiple sub-systems such as infotainment, digital instrument clusters, and heads-up displays running on a single high-performance system-on-chip (SoC).

  • How do you support popular Android apps that consumers demand without compromising safety and security of the digital cockpit?
  • How do you build a digital cockpit, with infotainment, digital instrument cluster, head-up display, and companion screens running on a single high-performance system-on-chip (SoC) while also isolating safety-critical systems from non-safety critical systems?
  • Learn the practical considerations and best practices around ECU consolidation to provide the seamless in-car experience drivers want, with the security, safety, and reliability they need
  • By addressing the number of ECUs, automakers can decrease cost and complexity, as well as vehicle weight and emission, while minimizing the potential for hacks or vulnerabilities
