After the inital welcome, this introduction provides an overview of the SdV big picture and market drivers, the current situation and inhibitors, the target picture, barriers to Success, and transformation strategies. Finally, an overview of the SdV 101 course will be given.
Watch this brief welcome message by Dirk Slama (Bosch and Steinbeis FSTI) and get an overview of the SdV 101 course: Topics covered by SdV 101, topics NOT covered, plus an outlook how we are planning to extend this SdV learning initiative over time.
The big picture starts by looking at "Smart phone on wheels" as an analogy for the Software-defined Vehicle, including opportunities and challenges such as functional safety. Next, this lesson is discussing the current situation in automotive software development, the idealized target picture, as well as the transformation roadmap to achieve the target picture. All these topics will be covered in more detail in the remainder of this module.
Market Drivers for Software-defined Vehicle
Alex Oyler from SBD Automotive is giving us a short overview of the key market drivers for the Software-defined Vehicle, including value creation, cost reduction, and development speed.
Why Your Car Isn't Software-Defined
Alex Oyler from SBD Automotive presents a short overview on Why Your Car Isn't Software-Defined.
Current Situation and Inhibitors
As we will discuss in the following, many large OEMs are struggling today with very long lead times for new software features, due to he inherent complexity of their hardware, embedded software, and higher-level software architecture. Many cars today have many dozens of highly specialized and often very heterogenous on-board compute units. ECUs (Electronic Control Units) from different vendors and with different hardware, software and networking capabilities are combined in a way which creates a very high level of complexity, leading to today`s high development costs and long time-to-market cycles. The figure below from the article "Car electronics: how much more complexity can we handle?" is illustrating the point.
In the following video, Jacek Marczyk, CEO of Ontonix, provides a deep dive on the topic of complexity and how it applies to current vehicle architectures.
How does the target picture for Software-defined Vehicle look like? How will this target picture combine the user experience perspective with the value stream perspective? Which role are operational and development value streams are playing in this? And why do we need two main SdV value streams, operating at different speeds? This lesson provides some initial answers.
