About this report

As more new vehicles integrate a growing number of hardware and software technologies, E/E architectures are set to play an important role across the vehicle lifecycle. This role will be especially important as software-defined vehicles emerge and place new technologies at the core of this lifecycle – from development and throughout the user experience, to the SDV-specific features and services that help extend it.

The significance of E/E architectures in SDVs, as well as today’s vehicles, makes it crucial for OEMs to carefully plan and map out a holistic approach to them. Doing so will allow automakers to create cost-effective vehicles that are safer, more secure, and provide enhanced system usability.

This Guide includes everything automotive planners and engineers need to understand around the state of the art of E/E architectures, and the journey to enable a software defined vehicle. Here, it provides insight into the decisions that enable year-on-year delivery with optimal utility and costs while highlighting relevant trends and profiling key technologies. An accompanying Excel version offers the latest data to encourage strong decision-making, with thousands of data points presented with every release.
