Automotive Electronics Reliability
Abstract: In recent years, driven by changing environmental regulations, many automakers have detailed plans to electrify large portions of their fleets over the next decade. This, combined with the industry adoption of ADAS technologies, has led to the rapid growth of car electronic systems. The introduction of new technologies coupled with aggressive timelines necessitates a change to the traditional product development process. Physical testing, a cornerstone of the product development process, is becoming much more time and cost-prohibitive, requiring a move to virtual validation. In this presentation, I will discuss how virtual validation can be achieved today through simulation, along with some of the traps engineers often fall into with simulation.
