Elektrik/Elektronik für Nutzfahrzeuge - Konferenz

Die Elektrik/Elektronik im Nutzfahrzeug steht aktuell unter dem großen Einfluss der Digitalisierung. Autonomes Fahren sowie Konnektivität stehen im besonderen Fokus und konfrontiert den Entwicklungsingenieur mit IT-orientierten Herausforderungen. Wie ist das Fahrzeug sicher in eine externe Infrastruktur einzubinden? Welche Daten werden wie ausgewertet und welche real-time basierten Entscheidungsempfehlungen folgen daraus? Welchen Einfluss hat dies schlussendlich auf die interne E/E-Architektur? Diese und weitere Fragen werden auf der Konferenz „Elektrik/Elektronik im Nutzfahrzeug“ thematisiert.
