Vehicles are becoming more and more like mobile data centres. On average, a modern vehicle contains over 60 sensors that monitor various aspects of the vehicle, generating an immense amount of data that is processed on the go. This transformation is creating an unprecedented set of challenges for OEMs. Edge computing is a new paradigm that is changing how data is processed in these types of environments.
A lot of people, like myself, believe automotive is the most innovative sector today, especially when it comes to software. We are living a critical moment in automotive, where evolution is being pushed onto the market. This rapid software shift is posing challenges that are complicating developers’ progress. Most of these challenges are hardware-related. Gaining access to target development hardware has become an impossible task, the recent global microchip shortage did not help.
