Published 2020-01-01 by SAE International in United States

Aptiv's new generation of open-sourced architectures based on a few central processors aims to speed AV adoption. CTO Glen DeVos explains.

The software-intensive, electrified and increasingly automated vehicle will define the 2020s. Its rise is driving both the industry-wide re-thinking of electrical architectures and the growth of engineering employment behind it. At the forefront of this trend is Aptiv, the technology Tier 1 spun off from Delphi in 2017. It now has more than 19,000 engineers among its 160,000 staff, comprising one of the highest engineer-to-employee ratios among large suppliers.

While engineers debate the use of thermal-imaging sensors for ADAS, their capability and value are being proven for AVs of all levels.

What specific sensor types will comprise the advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) of the 2020s? That's a controversial subject among engineers who are developing SAE Level 2 and 3 (and the so-called “L2+”) ADAS sensing suites for new vehicles. Many of them believe that visible-light cameras fused with radar will suffice to deliver the object-identification accuracy, redundancy-and cost effectiveness-that OEMs and the driving public expect of ADAS-equipped vehicles.

SPE's annual awards highlight new and interesting materials and their applications.

The Society of Plastics Engineers (SPE) annual Automotive Innovation Awards Competition, now in its 49th year, is considered the “Oscars” for those developing polymer and composites-intensive components, systems and vehicles. Winners of the latest competition held in late 2019 topped an incredible field of entries that continue to show the benefits of lightweight, durable plastics across the spectrum of vehicle applications.

The mammoth annual techfest formerly known as the Consumer Electronics Show has become a must-attend for the mobility industry, with dozens of displays by OEMs and suppliers of all dimensions. At this year's CES, Automotive Engineering was impressed by new developments in ADAS and AV sensing and processing, V2X connectivity, vehicle cabin sensing and related technologies, electrification advances and a number of vehicle introductions. Highlights of our reporting include:

Amid a steadily contracting sedan universe, Hyundai has dug in its heels and thoroughly redesigned and engineered its Sonata for 2020. The eighth-generation model sports a shapely (to our eyes) exterior form slightly reminiscent of Audi's A7. It's underpinned by a new platform shared with its 2021 Kia Optima cousin that will serve multiple FWD/AWD passenger cars and crossovers, according to senior U.S. product-planning manager, Mike Evanoff.

What are your greatest needs related to Standards? That question is one I typically ask during my conversations and formal interviews with mobility-industry engineers. As might be expected, those involved with AV development tend to offer a robust list of standards they'd like SAE International to pursue.

“Today a bunch of idiot lights appeared in the minivan during my drive to work,” reported my spouse, Suzie, after she arrived home one evening last month. Sure enough, the cluster on our 2011 Honda Odyssey lit up like a Christmas tree when I turned on the ignition to investigate. The Check Engine light and two others were illuminated.

The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in early October distributed a notice soliciting industry and public input on whether to allow “camera monitoring systems” to replace rear- and sideview exterior mirrors mandated since 1968 in U.S. auto safety standards. The agency said in a notice in the online Federal Register that it is seeking outside research and data about the potential safety impacts of replacing conventional fixed mirrors with camera-based vision systems. The action is one step in the process to inform a potential proposal to alter the mirror requirement for future production vehicles sold in the U.S.
