Architecting vehicle systems that enable adaptability, automation, performance, and connectivity.

Designing and building vehicles for the future requires architectures that support a variety of data interfaces to support the vehicle through the lifespan. Vehicles today require the ability to adapt, improve the operator’s experience, remotely diagnose, share data, use new energy sources, and expand their functions as technologies and aftermarket solutions come to the market. Starting with vehicle architecture we will walk through the types of communication architectures that exists today and how to map out your use cases to determine what system architectures will be required to support your customers and vehicles of the future.
