Set Alert for Connectivity

Cockpit of the Future: Vehicle Purpose, Segment Will Dictate Design

“Cockpit of the future” stirs images of giant pillar-to-pillar screens and lavish immersive user experiences. Those are coming in ultra-premium luxury EVs as soon as this year, but in the world of high-volume personal vehicles and commercial trucks, there will be many different cockpits of the future, delineated by purpose, segments and price. Many won’t have screens at all; they will be BYOD (Bring Your Own Device).

Software Defined Architectures: The Burgeoning Business Model

Next-generation E/E architectures will create new business models for automakers and suppliers. But a Wards Intelligence survey shows few see themselves as pacesetters, and there’s some uncertainty about where the best monetization opportunities are. The massive change in operations, and the associated costs, will put constraints on the timeframe and depth of the changes in infrastructure and vehicle architectures that OEMs will be able to address.

Outlook Q2 2021: Where We’re Headed With Autonomous Vehicles and What It Will Take to Get There

Glenn Sanders, Principal Analyst-Autonomous Vehicles at Wards Intelligence, will cut through the hype on where the industry stands with autonomous-vehicle development and the likely path ahead for commercialization, and Luca DeAmbroggi, Chief Analyst-Technologies and E/E Architectures at Wards Intelligence will discuss the transformation to the Software Defined Vehicle that’s required to make it all happen.

Autonomous Vehicles Connectivity

Battery-Electric Vehicles to Lead on 5G Deployment

The adoption of new ADAS – and ultimately fully autonomous – features is requiring faster communication between sensors, GPS and the cloud, driving automakers toward 5G communication. Upcoming BEVs, many incorporating all-new software-defined electronics architectures, are at the forefront of the transition.
