The growth of electronics within the automobile has been nothing short of phenomenal. In 2015 it accounted for 13% of the total value of the car and in 2018 it has now jumped to 20%. A large portion of that has been purely due to the rise of the computing components, such as ADAS, ECUs, etc. New technologies such as 3D laminated glass, haptic sensors, and augmented reality heads-up displays — which offer drivers alerts, safety aids, and warnings on invisible screens embedded in the windshield — have entered the vocabulary of traditional suppliers. Large navigation and entertainment display screens in the dashboard offer Web-based information and media, as well as data arrays, picked up from networked roads and other cars. The autonomous car will further up the ante. This talk will focus on many of what is the “under the hood” computing portions, technologies, and the accompanying massive software stack that needs to go with it. It is time we got more familiar with the computing technologies and underlying foundations that go with it. There will be a good deal of historical trace of these trends and we will introduce many terms, concepts, and issues to help folks in the automotive world get better prepared for the future in which there is expected to be a greater fusion of automotive and computer technologies.
