Impact of Autonomous & Electric Vehicles in New Product Development

by Jonathan Hunt published on November 28, 2019

Product design in autonomous and electric vehicles requires a product architecture of systems, subsystems, hardware, and software, as well as requirements management and the “Engineering V.” Electronics, hardware, and software in the product also necessitate new software standards. Automotive SPICE, a software capability standard required by many OEMs, has the voice of the customer translated into system architectural requirements, which flow down to system requirements, then to software architecture, next to software requirements, and finally into unit requirements. As the requirements flow down, customers, suppliers, sub suppliers must work closely together because product development of Functional Safety, SOTIF, Cyber Security, and AIAG-VDA FMEA demands linked development.

This 30-minute Webinar explains the fundamental building blocks of autonomous and electric vehicles and the standards that govern them.
