Mobility Decoded

BREAKING DOWN THE TECHNOLOGIES THAT MATTER MOST TO OEMS AND THEIR CUSTOMERS

Cracking the Code

INNOVATION EVERYWHERE

The future of mobility is electrified, automated and software-defined. How we build that future is up to us. In this series of short videos, our experts share their vision of how we can create a foundation today that will move mobility forward.

SEASON 2

SEASON 1

Building a Sustainable Vehicle Architecture

EPISODE 3

As automotive software becomes more complex, a new cloud-native architecture is necessary to decouple software from hardware and enable the vehicle to evolve over its lifecycle.

The Evolution of Vehicle Perception and ADAS

EPISODE 2

ADAS solutions need a combination of different sensing modalities. Cameras are an essential part of the equation, but they have limitations — such as inclement weather, high-contrast lighting and nighttime driving scenarios. To provide the best ADAS systems, we need to optimize the sensor set to get the most value out of what each sensor is good at.

Trends Driving the Future of Automotive

EPISODE 1

To deliver electrified, software-defined vehicles, OEMs need three things: a hardware architecture that is optimized at the system level, a cloud-native software architecture that is abstracted from the underlying hardware, and a DevOps toolchain that enables continuous updates over the vehicle’s lifetime.

The Next Generation of Smart Vehicle Architecture™

EPISODE 15

New automotive features are increasingly enabled by software — meaning the entire vehicle needs to be more software-defined to enable those features to be managed over time. That is where the next generation of Smart Vehicle Architecture™ comes in.

Data Communication Challenges in Automotive

EPISODE 14

The biggest data communication challenges for the automotive industry are bandwidth and latency. The vehicle architecture of the future needs to be able to transmit raw data very fast from high-definition cameras, radars and other sensors. Learn how Aptiv's Smart Vehicle Architecture™ is up to the task.

Enabling Electrification Through Automation

EPISODE 13

As OEMs design the next generation of electric vehicles, they are looking for ways to reduce costs and make production more sustainable. That's why it's critical to leverage electrical architecture solutions built with automation in mind.

Busbars Evolve Beyond the Battery

EPISODE 12

Expanding busbars beyond the inside of the battery pack enables efficient power distribution and new features — as the applications where we are using them increase significantly.

Integrated Power Electronics: Better Together

EPISODE 11

Consolidating functions from the onboard charger, the DC-to-DC converter, the BDU, the PDU, and the EVSE controller into a single device enables overall package savings, weight savings, and significant cost savings.

Perception Is Critical to ADAS Availability

EPISODE 10

As OEMs pursue higher levels of vehicle autonomy, optimizing the strengths of all sensing modalities is critical to provide autonomous driving features that can work in the widest variety of driving conditions.

Building a Compute Foundation

EPISODE 9

The compute architecture, the zonal architecture, the networking, and the data management have to be in place to enable the software-defined vehicle.

How Machine Learning Is Evolving in Automotive

EPISODE 8

Artificial intelligence and machine learning can help OEMs provide higher levels of performance and functionality while reducing costs.

Enhancing Functions and Features With AI/ML

EPISODE 7

On the road to the software-defined vehicles of the future, how do you improve vehicle functionality without changing the hardware? That's where artificial intelligence and machine learning come in.

Why the Auto Industry Has Its Head in the Cloud

EPISODE 6

Our experts reveal what's on the horizon for cloud-native vehicle architectures and explain why OEMs need to get cirrus about cloud computing.

The Importance of the Digital Feedback Loop

EPISODE 5

Ongoing innovation in the automotive industry requires constant two-way communication between the vehicle and the developers; that's where the digital feedback loop comes in.

The Keys to Automotive Software Development

EPISODE 4

Software development in automotive is unlike any other industry. Learn from our experts about what's needed to handle the scale, complexity, speed and safety of developing software for the vehicles of the future.

Shifting Gears in Software Development

EPISODE 3

Software is driving big changes in the automotive industry, but what trends are driving changes in the software?

Enabling a Truly Software-Defined Vehicle

EPISODE 2

As the mobility industry races to deliver a truly software-defined vehicle, it is important to understand what technologies make that possible.

Top Trends in Automotive

EPISODE 1

A lot is changing in the automotive industry. Our experts highlight the key trends to watch.
