Automotive Industry Standards and Trends

On Demand Available until September 27, 2017

The consumer has reaped the benefits of automotive manufacturers developing new vehicle lines, enhanced features, and safety improvements, all culminating in record sales for the auto industry. While consumers focus on ease of use, driving experience, and safety, manufacturers focus on increased modularity, reusability, and manufacturing efficiency. For manufacturers, this focus means reusing code, components, and technologies to minimize duplication of effort.

Increased practices of code, component, and technology reuse are driving the need for new and updated standards relating to software design, management, and testing in the automotive arena. This 30-minute Webinar examines trending standards activities and their impact on not only the software development life cycle but also overall safety, security, and quality of components used in vehicles. The Webinar also explores the far-reaching impact of failure to understand the reasoning behind automotive standards and how individuals can participate.

An audience Q&A follows the technical presentation.
