The market for automotive software and for electrical and electronic components is expected to grow strongly in the next decade. Autonomous driving, connected vehicles, the electrification of the powertrain, and shared mobility are mutually reinforcing developments in the automotive sector.
Companies must navigate issues around strategy and technology, processes, and organization to keep up as software and electrical/electronic architecture grow more important to mobility. Automotive OEMs face several challenges associated with software, from building a profoundly different electrical/electronic (E/E) architecture to adopting the processes and best practices to support efficient software development
As the car continues its transition from a hardware-driven machine to a software-driven electronics device, the auto industry’s competitive rules are being rewritten. Moreover the snowballing complexity is causing significant software-related quality issues, as evidenced by millions of recent vehicle recalls.
