As the automotive industry moves towards a more electric and autonomous future, the need for a robust and efficient vehicle EE electronic/electric architecture becomes increasingly important. The EEA is the backbone of a vehicle’s electrical system, managing and distributing power to various subsystems and components.
Our whitepaper on vehicle EE architecture dives deep into the benefits of this new approach and how it can benefit automakers in the long run. We explore how a larger number of ECUs will be replaced by high computing-powered domain/zone controllers, enabling over-the-air (OTA) updates and lower complexity.
We also discuss the growing importance of automotive software as a key component of present-day vehicles, and how automakers are adopting an IT approach to introducing middleware and visualizers to effectively utilize E/E hardware.
As a software-defined vehicle approach becomes more common, automakers are shifting towards developing their automotive software internally to keep up with the competition. Software services are also becoming a revenue stream for automakers, and our whitepaper on vehicle EE architecture explores how companies like Tesla are leading the way in enhancing automotive software development and introducing innovative new products.
