INTERVIEW: Aptiv on electric/electronic (E/E) architecture migration

Software-Defined Vehicles

Software-defined vehicle architecture is reshaping the auto industry with adaptable tech integration, requiring revamped E/E architecture, and creating data-driven subscription services for OEMs and new business prospects.

The software-defined vehicle architecture is poised to bring about a transformative shift in the automotive industry by facilitating a flexible and adaptable solution for the assimilation of cutting-edge technologies, features and services, including charging infrastructure, predictive maintenance, autonomous driving, connected vehicles, enhanced safety systems, as well as fintech and blockchain. This necessitates a comprehensive reimagining of the vehicle E/E architecture, especially the software but also for hardware. In addition to streamlining the vehicle development process, the new E/E architectures will also let original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) leverage data-driven services that cater to a user base more attuned to subscription-based features, thus creating new and appealing business opportunities. To learn more, we spoke to Christian Schäfer, Vice President of Advanced Vehicle Architecture, Aptiv.
