Vehicle Electrification and Integrated E/E Systems

Webinar a la carta | 46 minutos

Automotive electrical/electronic development of the future

An image of an electric vehicle fast charging in a city, an example of vehicle electrification.

Automakers today face multiple challenges in their electric vehicle (EV) development, such as designing attractive cars that customers desire, production at scale to maintain profitability, keeping their operations running, and having the ability to invest in those operations to maintain competitiveness. Join us with Migo Richter, Market Development Director – Siemens EDA, and Doug Burcicki, Global Director Automotive & Transportation – Integrated Electrical Systems, as they discuss the end-to-end solutions that help you make reliable decisions while developing new electrical/electronic (E/E) architecture designs.

Increased E/E content driving an architecture evolution

The underlying E/E architecture has evolved gradually over time. Today you can see vehicles produced at scale, profitably, and cars that people want to own. This webinar will cover electric vehicle E/E systems architecture changes within 5-10 years. We will also discuss the current trends within the E/E system development, such as the customer demand for infotainment, user experience with increased functionality, and the ability to update their cars “on-demand.” Other topics in this webinar include:

  • Cyber security
  • Functional safety
  • Increased complexity and traceability
  • Speed to market
  • The difficulty development teams working in silos bring
  • Market disruptions due to new players entering the market and/or the software-driven vehicle
