Cyber Security in the Automotive Domain – An Overview

Driven by the growing internet and remote connectivity of automobiles, combined with the emerging trend to automated driving, the importance of security for automotive systems is massively increasing. Although cyber security is a common part of daily routines in the traditional IT domain, necessary security mechanisms are not yet widely applied in the vehicles. At first glance, this may not appear to be a problem as there are lots of solutions from other domains, which potentially could be re-used. But substantial differences compared to an automotive environment have to be taken into account, drastically reducing the possibilities for simple reuse. Our contribution is to address automotive electronics engineers who are confronted with security requirements. Therefore, it will firstly provide some basic knowledge about IT security and subsequently present a selection of automotive specific security use cases.

High Performance Processor Architecture for Automotive Large Scaled Integrated Systems within the European Processor Initiative Research Project

Autonomous driving systems and connected mobility are the next big developments for the car manufacturers and their suppliers during the next decade. To achieve the high computing power needs and fulfill new upcoming requirements due to functional safety and security, heterogeneous processor architectures with a mixture of different core architectures and hardware accelerators are necessary. To tackle this new type of hardware complexity and nevertheless stay within monetary constraints, high performance computers, inspired by state of the art data center hardware, could be adapted in order to fulfill automotive quality requirements. The European Processor Initiative (EPI) research project tries to come along with that challenge for next generation semiconductors. To be as close as possible to series development needs for the next upcoming car generations, we present a hybrid semiconductor system-on-chip architecture for automotive.

Future Automotive Embedded Systems Enabled by Efficient Model-Based Software Development

This paper explains why software for efficient model-based development is needed to improve the efficiency of automakers and suppliers when implementing solutions with next generation automotive embedded systems. The resulting synergies are an important contribution for the automotive industry to develop safer, smarter, and more eco-friendly cars. To achieve this, it requires implementations of algorithms for machine learning, deep learning and model predictive control within embedded environments. The algorithms’ performance requirements often exceed the capabilities of traditional embedded systems with a homogeneous multicore architecture and, therefore, additional computing resources are introduced. The resulting embedded systems with heterogeneous computing architectures enable a next level of safe and secure real-time performance for innovative use cases in automotive applications such as domain controllers, e-mobility, and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).
