Embedded Software Integrity for Automotive Summit
Modern day vehicles have become incredibly complex digital devices boasting up to 100 million lines of code in one modern car. The number of complex embedded software involved in creating present day vehicles will only continue to grow as the number of advanced technology and functions, such as autonomous driving, advanced driver assistance programs, vehicle connectivity and vehicle electrification are quickly on the rise.
Automotive OEMs and their key Tier 1 Suppliers are finding that developing safe and secure software is a substantial undertaking due to increasing system complexity. This system complexity can result in delayed development cycles as well as quality and feature sacrifices
Since cars rely on a variety of embedded software for a wide array of functions, improving the quality of embedded software is critical. Loopholes and bugs in software can have unintended consequences, including creating a safety or security risk, and causing a surge in the number of vehicles recalled – with over 63 million vehicles recalled in 2014.
Because future automotive innovations will be realized by embedded software, now is the time for the industry to discuss how to improve the development of embedded software to foster efficiency and high quality. Join us this May in Detroit to discuss how the industry can overcome the overwhelming challenge of creating high quality software that will ensure functional safety and security in today’s high-tech vehicles.
