Rise of Computing inside the Automotive DNA

IEEE CS SD Invited Seminar Series 2024 - Lecture 3 | NOTE: This particular talk will NOT be recorded. 

The growth of electronics within the automobile has been nothing short of phenomenal. In 2015 it accounted for 13% of the total value of the car and in 2018 it has now jumped to 20%. A large portion of that has been purely due to the rise of computing-based components, such as ADAS, ECUs, etc. New technologies such as haptic sensors, and augmented reality heads-up displays — which offer drivers alerts, safety aids, and warnings on invisible screens embedded in the windshield — have entered the vocabulary of traditional suppliers. Large navigation and entertainment display screens in the dashboard offer Web-based information and media as well as data arrays picked up from networked roads and other cars. The autonomous car will further up the ante, and soon. It will change the “living space” dimension of automotive interiors.

This talk will focus on many of what is the “under the hood” computing portions, technologies and the accompanying massive software baggage that needs to go with it. It is time we got more familiar with the computing technologies and underlying foundations that go with it.

We will introduce many terms, concepts and issues to help folks in Automotive technologies get better prepared for the future (or is fusion a better word?) world of automotive & computer tech.
