Automotive system design (ASD) focuses on problems around mobility and fuel efficient automotive systems.
Automotive system design takes a hard look at communication systems and electrical driving with emphasis on the multidisciplinary design aspects of project-based research and engineering and the challenges that are faced by the automotive industry.
Without question, matters regarding automotive system design are changing rapidly. The automotive sector is evolving into a high-tech industry facing huge challenges in terms of multidisciplinary product and process engineering that requires new generations of engineers.
These challenges, of course, also present opportunities for automotive system design specialists to translate new ideas and plans into effective and efficient automotive designs.
Automotive analysts believe the time has come for a totally revamped approach to automotive system design give the technological advances such as autonomous and semi-autonomous driving.
A collaborative and thinking approach among the various industry players are being called up now more than ever.
In the past it has taken approximately 4.5 years to develop a new car. Automotive system design generally begins in the concept phase, which hands off to the start of production (SOP) period and ends up in the end of production (EOP) phase.
Experts in this area say this pattern is being interrupted by the evolution to advanced driving assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous cars are driving an explosion of new silicon.
At the center of it all is the system-on-chip (SoC), a powerful semiconductor device that runs complex algorithms and includes many hardware accelerator “brains,” also thought of as
the unsung heroes of the autonomous car gold rush that many call a marvel of advanced engineering.
The great challenge: How can engineers efficiently design these superchips to process billions of operations per second to identify and classify objects on the road in near-real time? What are the actual challenges in designing SoCs that process information from multiple sensors, radars, and cameras to carry out object recognition, distance estimation, and 3D mapping?
