Understanding Automotive E/E Systems | TOC Automotive Software Project Management

The VDI ‘Understanding Automotive E/E Systems’ Online Training will teach you about the main characteristics of automotive software and how it differs from software in other application domains, as well as the basics of software-based E/E systems. On top of that, you’ll consider the meaning of software-based E/E systems in modern cars and look at the development aspect of the software scope in fully autonomous vehicles.

Automotive innovation is primarily driven by the area of electrics / electronics

90 per cent of innovation in the automotive sector takes place in the area of electrics / electronics (E/E). In modern cars, almost every function is governed by software, which is used in E/E components, making it a part of E/E systems providing technical or client functionality. The increase in software-based vehicle functions has made the controlling of the complexity in cars a major challenge. This is why a fundamental understanding of software-based E/E systems is imperative in order to  keep up with current developments and changes in the automotive industry.

This interactive online training will give you the important overview you need of E/E systems and the meaning of E/E systems in the context of current developments in the automotive industry. On top of that, you will learn about the important foundations of electronic control units, as well as bus systems. You’ll engage with the crucial components in the driver-vehicle-environment system and will learn how to distinguish automotive software from other forms of software. You will also gain an understanding of what the scope of software looks like when considering developments in fully autonomous vehicles.
