With the advent of the electronics and semiconductor technology for automotive use, today's modern vehicles not only many folds more efficient than their predecessors, but it is also a state-of-art innovation masterpiece that provides us with commuting convenience. Modern cars' mechanics are now relying more on their OBD-II computer diagnostic tools, rather than the screw-drivers, spanners and wrenchers of their mechanical predecessors. As we welcome the dawn of smart connected and autonomous vehicle, there are a series of technical challenges that need to be overcome in order to achieve a reliable and successful roll-out.
This talk will illuminate on the evolution of vehicle electronics from the replacement of carburettors with fuel injectors, to the introduction of embedded controller based ABS, EBD, cruise controls, advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS), and smart autonomous and connected vehicles. An overview of the in-vehicle networks such as CAN, LIN, MOST and latest automotive in-vehicle networks; and the technical challenges associated with smart connected and autonomous vehicles shall be presented.
