Title: Driving and being driven: technology shaping future mobility
Abstract : Upcoming architectures for vehicular electrics,
electronics, communication and software will face challenges driven by
strong strategic trends. Those trends - Automated Driving, Artificial Intelligence,
Drivetrain Electrification and Connected Systems and Services (ACES) - are
demanding and require coping with increasing system complexity and
formal verifiability; moreover, they are driving technological innovation,
new subsystems and components to be integrated and new requirements for
This not only means a plethora of additional sensors, compute-heavy algorithms,
and the corresponding load on the vehicle's physical network
regarding data throughput and power consumption, but also requires
introduction of formalized functional safety engineering to a much greater
extent than previous vehicle generations.
Moreover, intelligent algorithms not only help automated vehicles drive safely,
but artificial intelligence will be making its way into quite every aspect
of functional vehicle design with the advent of intelligent personal
assistants, affective multi-modal natural user interaction, situational
awareness and augmented reality, and raising expectations of personalized
pro-activeness. The vehicle's self-awareness is further driving architectural
design challenges, not to the least regarding semantic service descriptions
and flexible organization of information streams. Compute hungry algorithms
are calling for high-performance computing solutions raising questions of
power consumption and power dissipation.
Besides, next-generation wireless communication with antenna array placement
requirements, as well as questions of information security and privacy are
among pressing automotive technology discussions. They are, however, part of
the foundation to deliver services and help organize people's mobile lifes.
Bio: Hans-Jörg Vögel received the Dipl.-Ing. and the Dr.-Ing.
degree in electrical engineering and information technology from the Munich
University of Technology (TUM) in 1993 and 2000, respectively. Among patent
applications, scientific papers, and other publications, Dr. Vögel has
co-authored the textbook "GSM: Switching, Services and Protocols". After
graduating, he worked for a European start-up in various technical and
managerial capacities. After joining BMW Group Research and Technology,
he was managing a research programme on secure telematics on-/offboard
service delivery platforms and respective applications. He held the group
function responsibility on vehicle software update methods and processes,
and was contributing to onboard security and privacy protection initiatives
before assuming responsibility for personalized services at ConnectedDrive.
From 2014, he has been leading Future E/E and Enabling Technologies at
BMW Group Research and is now responsible for the central Artificial
Intelligence research hub at BMW. Dr. Vögel is a member of VDE.
