Electric/Electronic Architecture as an Enabler for Connected Mobility and Automated Driving
Dr. Matthias Traub, Head of Automotive IoT and E/E Architecture, BMW AG

Through the cooperate strategy “Number One> Next” relevant action fields for the BMW Group's digital transformation are set. This implies not only to “re-invent” the car itself but further the automotive electric/electronic architecture (e/e) in particular. Essentially the aim is to modify existing and future vehicles as well as services to realize customer-perceived, personalized, digital premium products. The design of all products and services is based on their "life cycle" with the goal to optimize them economically over their lifetime period. A further goal is a fast implementation of applications and their provision to customers, similar to the CE industry e.g. for customer features and security updates.

With these objectives, the BMW Group is working on a future e/e architecture vision, which provides a sustainable base for the implementation of an integrated digital e/e infrastructure (vehicle - BMW backend - 3rd parties) for all applications and services.

In addition to sphere of activities are requirements for regulatory, competition and technology trends relevant input parameters. For the future e/e architecture, BMW Research develops the necessary e/e building blocks in close cooperation with the product development departments and external partners. The objective is to develop a solution in which BMW can concentrate on its core competencies. Main priority is a standardization and cost optimization. Moreover, aim is to implement a "continuous deployment" by a standardized and homogenous e/e architecture and thus to offer BMW customers a product which is always up-to-date over its whole lifetime.
