How Software is Paving the Way for the Future of Electric and Autonomous Vehicles

Start Date:2/9/2021

Start Time:11:00 AM EST

Duration:60 minutes


Technology is at the forefront of today’s two major revolutions in the Automotive industry – autonomous vehicles (AVs) and electric vehicles (EVs). It’s widely discussed how AVs will bring monumental change, but the rise of EVs and a software-defined architecture is arguably even more disruptive.

With a focus on software, both AV and EV manufacturers are setting new standards for transportation. They are modular, support faster innovation, and aim to consolidate the best of the two worlds -- legacy and modern technology. However, AV and EV companies are facing their own set of development and production challenges. Their software architecture must include real-time data connectivity, reliability, redundancy and security. They need to integrate a variety of design and business units (powertrain, chassis, infotainment, etc.) as well as market-specific frameworks/ecosystems, such as ROS2 or AUTOSAR.

So what makes EV companies unique? How do they support faster innovation? How are they navigating the supply chain evolution and development of new business models? The answer lies in data centricity.

RTI’s data-centric connectivity software is proven in over 200 autonomous vehicle programs and trusted by companies, such as Audi, Baidu Apollo, Aptiv and Xpeng Motors. RTI Connext Drive® is the automotive-grade connectivity solution for autonomous vehicles, from development to production. Join us in this webinar as we discuss the top four challenges facing today’s EV companies. Attendees will learn what a data-centric approach means for the future and the Automotive manufacturers who embrace it. Pedro Lopez Estepa, Market Development Director of Automotive at RTI, will also dive into how Connext Drive enables data and software-centric vehicles built for high levels of autonomy.
