Ensuring Reliability and Safety of Connected Car Technology - White Paper

The internet has now come to the automobile, bringing connectivity for infotainment, telematics and vehicle data analytics. The connected car is rapidly becoming a key node in the emerging Internet of Things. While connected car technology is a bonus and a pleasure for car buyers, it poses unprecedented new engineering challenges regarding reliability, safety and security for car manufacturers. Vehicle makers are turning to sophisticated engineering tools such as simulation to address these myriad new challenges in developing connected car technology. Simulation cuts through complexity by enabling vehicle makers to virtually test many operating scenarios, and to uncover and fix hard-to-find, potentially disastrous reliability, safety and security lapses well before a car is manufactured.
