As vehicle technology advances to include more autonomy and higher degrees of connectivity, the number of electronic control units (ECUs) and overall complexity continues to increase. Today, a new vehicle might include over 100 million lines of code that manage and monitor a large array of subsystems including advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), infotainment, collision avoidance, and engine/vehicle management. This creates openings for cybersecurity problems.

Adapting Fuel Cell Technology From Off-Highway to On-Highway The transportation industry is quickly dominating fuel cell technology, owing to the rising number of fuel-cell powered vehicles across the world. Rising interest in heavy-duty transport applications and a huge market potential in Asia-Pacific for fuel cells in heavy-duty transportation is expected to create significant opportunities for the fuel cell market in the coming years. While Japan and South Korea are expected to play a pivotal role in advancing the fuel cell electric vehicle technology, Europe market is being driven by the Joint Initiative for hydrogen Vehicles (JIVE), which seeks to deploy zero-emission fuel cell buses. A major challenge being faced by the transportation industry to bring this technology to on-highway vehicles is the functional safety aspect of electric vehicles. Companies like LHP, will play a key role in adapting the existing off-highway technologies, with its Model-Based Design expertise and functional safety know-how.

What is ASPICE in Automotive? Product innovation in the automotive industry has been steadily increasing. As of 2019, 80 percent of product innovation now occurs through software development. Product differentiation by electronic features has exploded the number of vehicle platforms and vehicle variants. Each variant is a unique combination of features which will have different interactions and safety risks. This situation mandates the need of definition, implementation, and evaluation of proper processes for system development and the coordination of all stakeholders (e.g., OEM, tier supplier, etc.) more than ever.

There are a multitude of requirements management tools in the marketplace (e.g., IBM DNG, Siemens Polarion, Jama Software, Helix). How does an organization make the important decision of which is best for its needs when the options are endless or when using Microsoft Word/Excel or Google Docs for requirements management can be considered? Is there even one tool that can meet all of the organization’s needs? This blog will describe why selecting a tool based on one specific departmental need, such as requirements management, might be impractical.
