One of the biggest challenges facing the automotive industry today is the strategic shift away from its traditional focus on hardware solutions toward a new software-centric approach: the Software Defined Vehicle (SDV). The digitization of the automobile requires a radical rethink of both development processes and the entire vehicle’s architecture. At the heart of that architecture is the In-Vehicle Network (IVN) and, consequently, it will be directly affected by these changes.
In the past single criteria such as data rates, costs or the engineer's familiarity with the technology were the main factors driving the selection of a particular network technology, today new questions need to be asked: Does the selected transmission technology support the transformation of the E/E architecture from hardware-based to software-centric? Does it offer the necessary flexibility and self-learning capability to be able to continuously implement new functions? Automotive Ethernet, which supports service-oriented architectures, embodies all these features.
The Automotive Ethernet Congress 2023 will provide technical papers, examples from real-life practice, workshops, and reports of experience. Send us your suggestions on topics, such as the following:
These are just a selection of possible topics for discussion, you're welcome to send us an abstract on other aspects in and around the automotive Ethernet topic.
We're looking forward to receiving all your interesting proposals.
The closing date for submissions is October 14, 2022.
