Did you ever wonder, how does the software look like in the modern car? All these autonomous features like Lane Trace Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control requires a lot of sensors, LiDARs, cameras, which in turn produce massive amounts of data. Imagine that these data are processed by the High Performance Computer with multicore CPUs, FPGA cores and GPUs. Such a computer may host multiple operating systems on top of the hypervisor – Linux distributions, QNX and Android do not close the list.
Software-defined vehicles established on AUTOSAR-based ecosystem cannot work without automotive Ethernet, which provide fast and reliable communication.
