Automotive is witnessing a substantial innovation trend since more than a decade. Pervasiveness of electronics in vehicles determines complex challenges in terms of functional safety, cyber security and functionality in general. As present-day automobiles are becoming so computerized, it is not surprising that Artificial Intelligence (AI) is entering into some of the main on-board Electronic Control Units (ECU). A key factor is the growing presence in latest car models of sophisticated sensor technology that is accelerating the evolution of the so-called automotive Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS). The seminar will address some of these challenges by providing a comprehensive picture of the state of the art in development of automotive software-intensive systems.
