The drive towards autonomous and connected mobility is dramatically redefining vehicle architecture as we know it today. The car will become the ultimate 'mobile device', a 'data centre-on-wheels' characterised by software and no longer the mechanics. Sign up to watch our webinar with live Q&A on 27th August at 2pm BST / 3pm CEST.

Current in-vehicle Electrical and Electronic network architectures are complex, costly, and totally inadequate to address the needs of tomorrow. The question is not if they will change but when and how? EE architectures need to be more intelligent, flexible and connected; in-vehicle and vehicle-to-vehicle, vehicle-to-infrastructure, vehicle-to-cloud (often referred as V2X). Networking across all industries, whether it be data centres, telecommunications, industrial control or even home is IP based, operating over an Ethernet physical infrastructure. So, it was almost inevitable that Ethernet would also be the technology choice for Automotive. Is the vision of an ‘All Ethernet Vehicle’ set to become a reality?

In the presentation we will look at the changing needs and trends of in-vehicle networking, and how the industry is migrating towards a Zonal ECU based EE architecture with computing platform for autonomous driving. We provide a brief history of Automotive Ethernet and how it is evolving to meet the needs of the industry to become the dominant networking technology in the vehicle.

We also assess the practicalities and challenges of the ‘All Ethernet Vehicle’. Can Ethernet alone reduce system complexities and cost, whilst providing the required performance in an effective, secure and safe manner, to deliver tomorrows ‘data centre-on-wheels’?

Key learning points:

  • The changing vehicle architectures for connected and autonomous driving
  • An overview on the history and future trends of Ethernet in vehicles
  • The competition, challenges and opportunities for Automotive Ethernet
  • An insight into car makers next generation in vehicle network architectures
  • Total system solutions for in-vehicle connectivity
