Aptiv is an industry leader in systems that control and enhance the safety, comfort and convenience of a vehicle.
Most people never think about vehicle features such as electronic doors and windows, electronic steering and braking, dynamic suspension and propulsion, or keyless access — despite using them every day. Each of these features is powered by an electronic control unit (ECU). Aptiv’s automotive-grade ECUs meet the most stringent safety requirements — such as fast wake-up and Automotive Safety Integrity Level D (ASIL-D) regulatory certification — ensuring they will work flawlessly in the harshest conditions for the life of the vehicle.
However, decades of incremental feature additions have resulted in vehicle architectures that are out of space and mired in unmanageable complexity. It is here that Aptiv’s Connectivity & Security solutions are meeting our customers’ toughest challenges and providing the core of Aptiv’s Smart Vehicle ArchitectureTM.

Data Management and Integration
Smart Vehicle ArchitectureTM — or SVATM — is Aptiv’s answer to delivering a sustainable architecture. It simplifies complexity, unites diverse applications, and empowers our customers to control the software that defines their vehicles. A core building block for SVA™ is zone control, which brings these key advancements:
Over-the-air (OTA) updates are giving the automotive industry a chance to reimagine the vehicle lifecycle, but it’s critical to have the right software processes and hardware architecture in place. Global Engineering Director Jada Smith explains.learn more
To keep up with consumer demands for new functions, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) must embrace new methods of developing software. Aptiv is helping in several key ways:
Today’s feature-rich, highly automated vehicles are creating enormous cost and complexity challenges for OEMs. Aptiv’s Connectivity & Security solutions address those challenges by enabling the transition to a software-defined vehicle. Such vehicles – which can easily exceed 100 million lines of code – are driving exponential increases in data generation, transfer and utilization. This is enabling manufacturers and suppliers to unlock new insights. We must also ensure those systems are protected, and Aptiv is doing so in several ways:
