Research project sketches centralized computing architecture for e-cars

It has become somewhat silent about electric vehicles, and at the current Geneva Motor Show, e-cars do not take center stage, much in contrast to the past few years. This silence however is deceptive; behind the stages, the industry is feverishly working on the design of this type of vehicles. Recently, a research project has been launched that gets granular on the software architecture for electric cars – and it aims to the core of architectural concepts.

The global Siemens research department Corporate Technology is working with partners to develop new information and communications technology (ICT) for future electric cars. In vehicles built with this new technology, the driver assistance, safety, and infotainment features will mostly be installed as software instead of being managed in separate control units. This will reduce the current complexity of the ICT architecture and at the same time increase its power. The partners intend to demonstrate the benefits of a centralized ICT architecture with two electric car prototypes. The recently launched project RACE (Robust and Reliant Automotive Computing Environment for Future e-cars) is scheduled to run for three years and is being funded by Germany’s Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology.
