Technical Challenges in Implementing New Electrical Features on Existing Vehicle Architecture 2013-01-1229

Currently, OEMs worldwide are emphasizing more upon development and implementation of new electrical features on existing vehicles [3]. However, development and implementation of new electrical features on existing vehicle platforms create architectural as well as packaging challenges. These challenges are augmented due to following:
  • the need to implement such features across different body styles of vehicles that are based on same or different architectures
  • different requirement for a feature based upon market requirement
This paper analyzes these challenges to help in providing design solutions for successful implementation of new features as per following requirements:
  1. 1
    Provide optimum design to have low cost and high quality for existing vehicle platforms
  2. 2
    Provide spare capacity while designing new vehicles or architectures
