At first, to delight customers, OEMs and automakers released multiple standalone systems for various functions such as Infotainment, Telematics and Diagnostics. Then, offering multiple vehicle features to meet the demands of customers led to the explosion of Electronic Control Units (ECU), sensors and actuators in vehicles. This in turn led to more complexity, risks, delay and cost.
Adding to this is the onset of numerous Advanced Driver Assistance System and Self-driving features that are now being introduced, leading to a larger attack surface that needs to be safe guarded.
So, how can OEMs address such challenges?
- With an open hardware and software architecture that ensures isolation
- Single view of data and simplified systems management
- Freedom of interferences mechanisms
- A System that offers high performance, security and safety
