Today on the Future Car Podcast, Nand Kochhar, VP of Automotive and Transportation Industries, and Conor Peick, Thought Leadership Team Writer, continue a series of conversations on autonomous vehicles and how they will shape the future of mobility. While many details about AVs are uncertain at this time, it’s clear that they will require a significant amount of extremely advanced electronics hardware to operate.

Specific numbers may range, but many experts expect an autonomous vehicle will require around 30 advanced sensors and immense processing capabilities to safely navigate a complex and dynamic driving environment. So how do companies account for such a huge increase in complexity, power, and data in a vehicle network? And what implications do the requirements of an AV have on the design and development of these sensor and processing devices?

To help dive into the world of sensors, processors, and all things electronics, Nand and Conor are joined by Alan Porter, Vice President of the Electronics and Semiconductors Industry at Siemens Digital Industries Software.

  • What you will learn about in this episode:
  • How electronics devices have become a critical piece of modern vehicles, and why this growth has occurred
  • The design challenges of integrating multiple sensors, processors, and other devices into a modern vehicle platform
  • Why automakers are moving into the semiconductor design and manufacturing space, and how the demands of an automotive application impact chip design
  • The progress of sensing technology, such as LIDAR and camera devices
  • Why collaboration will be crucial to vehicle design teams and how digitalization can support companies as they develop the vehicles of tomorrow
