ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
Classic vehicles are turning into mobile, software-defined IoT devices. The vehicles of the future require the highest computing performance, with more powerful control units and compliance with continuously stricter standards.
Challenges include security, functional safety, cloud connectivity, increased design complexity, and more. At ACC 2020 we rethink traditional approaches to fit the way we work in our industry. Our renowned speakers will dive into the topic of automotive high-performance computing on many different aspects!

Integration efforts and dependencies become almost unmanageable. We need a paradigm shift to break the vicious circle and enable enormous business potential:
Centralize Compute…and de-couple vehicle SW from device SW
Function / Domain ‚agnostic‘ High-Performance Compute (HPC) Platform Standard
mP / SoC / SoM ‚family‘, supporting modular HPC approach & vertical integration
Sufficient & safe de-central I/O collection / concentration:
De-couple application SW from component base SW & network topology
enabling (µ)Service-Oriented Architecture & Design
Automotive OS and standardized SDK/IDE…incl. Collaboration Platform:
Vertical Enablers & Cloud Connectivity – enabling data management, back-end compute etc.
New business models: SaaP, SaaS, Service / Maintenance agreements until & beyond EOL

Linux is predestined to address these needs. The large development ecosystem and a huge community full of Linux experts at all levels drives Linux towards security and performance on embedded multicore systems and PREEMPT_RT provides real-time capabilities that are fully sufficient for ADAS and HMI use cases.
The remaining open challenge is functional safety. Which mitigation means are needed to enable a valid argumentation on systematic capabilities that are compliant to established safety standards such as IEC 61508?
This presentation outlines how to apply Linux for safe applications and aspects such as process proficiency, verification proficiency and integrity proficiency.
